Welcome to St Antony’s Catholic Primary School!
Learning together in God's love.
St Antony’s Catholic Primary School is a happy family and community school, where Christ is our inspiration and model and therefore his principles and precepts are central to all that we do in our learning, living and play. We inspire our pupils to aspire to greatness - to be the best that they can be individually. Consequently, we have very high expectations for all our children and staff for whom we provide an extensive range of learning opportunities and memorable experiences to enable all to reach their fullest potential and make the best use of their God given gifts, skills and talents.
We hope you enjoy our website, whether you are a pupil, member of staff, governor, parent, community member or an aspiring employee or volunteer. We trust that as you explore, you will truly get a sense of our pride in our children and staff and all their wonderful achievements as well as the enjoyment derived from honest, hard work and a love of learning which permeates all aspects of our school operations.
Finally, we are very proud to say that for the third year running, St Antony’s has been honoured to receive a letter of congratulations and commendation from the Minister of State for School Standards in the Department of Education on our school’s achievement in the SATS. Our school was acknowledged as being “among the top 3% of schools in England.” What’s our secret? We apply the ordinary magic of hard work, self-belief and determination.
To celebrate World Book Day - Marvellous March at St. Antony's Catholic Primary we invited the Eastside Educational Trust Drama and Storytelling Company (based in Hackney) to work with our children in Nursery - Year 6, to explore the joys of dramatizing stories and getting into characters from books they have read.
Thanks to all our Parents and Carers who came out in their large numbers to continue to boost and build their skills in mathematics problem solving at our parents maths workshop on Thursday March 10.Your feedback will be used to further drive standards as together we work to raise and maintain the highest standards in maths from Early years (EYFS) through to Year 6.
Today we celebrated the end of our first half term. Our celebration was focussed on our Black History Month (BHM) theme of trailblazers. We had our baking competition finals, as well as a fashion show and our BHM speech and dance finals. Here are some pictures to share highpoints of the events. Students and staff joined in to make this a memorable day.
It is that time of year again when deserving children get to go for a ride on the Santa Express. The children spent a wonderful day being entertained by the Elves of the TFL rail on the Santa express. The group were given treats and gifts . They were also wowed by magic tricks and fun games. Then a serious tour of the control rooms and explanations of how the controls worked was followed by mre treats and a train ride with laughter and song. Azariah of year 4 said “That was the most amusing train ride I have ever had.”
This week we launched our commemoration and celebration of Black History Month (BHM) so many events and activities are planned. The theme for this year is TrailBlazers. Each class will study three Stand out persons from the BAME group. There will be a baking competition and sale. Pupils will use their Design and technology skills to create inventions or models for science. The classes will show off their Speech, drama and dance in the BHM Showcase. The grand finale will be the BHM end of term fashion show and non uniform day.
