Welcome to our school website

Welcome to Alice Ingham Catholic Primary School. This website is designed to give you an insight into our school family, our values, our aims and our achievements. I hope that the information contained within these pages is useful, but it is no replacement for first-hand experience. Therefore, you are warmly encouraged to visit our school and see us in action. 

Alice Ingham Catholic School is a Voluntary Aided school and as such our primary role is to serve the Catholic community of St. Patrick’s Parish. We offer education from Reception to Year 6. It is a privilege to see our children grow and mature during their time with us.

We believe that a major part of our role is to prepare all of our children for the world that we live in and the challenges that the future holds for them. We design our curriculum so that it is set in a meaningful context with plenty of opportunities to explore learning in real situations. Our team are dedicated to ensuring that our children are engaged and enthused and develop a lifelong love of learning.

Our school life is based on Christian Values. We recognise and respond to the needs of each child. We respond to their academic needs and also the development of the whole child as an individual. We develop happy, fulfilled, well-educated and confident children in a caring, disciplined environment with our Faith as the focus of our actions. We expect, and encourage excellence in the range of activities the school undertakes.

Education is a partnership between home, school and parish in which we seek and encourage the participation of parents in the learning process and in the life of our school. Parents are welcome partners in the education of their child and in the development of our school family.
