Our school is centred on Gospel values, we encourage our pupils to use their skills and talents for the glory of God and we ensure that we take time to give thanks each day.”                        

Greg Hughes Head teacher

We aim to offer the very best in religious education for your child. The school has adopted the ‘Come and See’ scheme of work that has been newly introduced in September 2013. The scheme is based on the theological foundations of the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic Catechism and the revised RE Curriculum Directory.

At St Hugh’s we have a strong sense of catholic community committed to the Christian values of love and respect for each other and aims to teach the children Gospel values, so that they become well rounded individuals with both social and academic skills to empower them for the future. This is celebrated through a regular program of Mass and Liturgy. Children are encouraged to take ownership of collective worship and contribute to planning and delivering opportunity for prayer and reflection. In choosing St Hugh’s CatholicPrimary School you will therefore make a commitment to work closely with the school and Parish, in the formation and strengthening of the faith.
