Welcome to English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School
A very warm welcome to our school website-welcome to our school community where we are ‘Loving Jesus, Loving Learning and Loving Life’ each day as we journey through school.
I hope this website gives you a flavour of life at English Martyrs’ school and helps you to find information about the wonderful things we do here.
English Martyrs' is a Catholic Primary in the West End of Newcastle. We currently have 470 pupils on roll from Nursery to Year 6.
We are a warm, friendly school where the staff, Governors and parish community work together to provide a caring and safe environment in which children thrive.
We encourage the children to be independent, responsible and enthusiastic learners. We enjoy working in partnership with parents/carers to empower our children to reach their full potential and enable them to develop spiritually, intellectually, physically, emotionally, morally and socially.
At English Martyrs’ Catholic School we follow what Jesus taught us in the Gospels. We know that God made us and that we are all equal - no-one is better than anyone else so we respect, value and learn to tolerate everyone in our school community.
We are thankful for the talents and gifts God has given each member of our school community and we all work hard to use them to make sure we make our school, our local community and the world a better place.
Our children are excellent ambassadors for our school and they work together to make sure that everyone in our school is happy and feels safe by being kind, caring, well behaved and polite.
We also have lots of fun! Have a look at our photos galleries.
