Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome to St Kentigern's Catholic Primary School!
On behalf of our whole school community, I would like to thank you for choosing our school and we look forward to welcoming your child into our school family. We take care in planning your child’s transition from their previous pre-school/ nursery settings and we understand that this is an important milestone for your family.

If you wish to accept your place, please email as soon as possible.
Likewise, if you choose not to accept your place, we politely request that you email us so that we can open the place to another family. 

We use the ClassDojo app as our primary means of communication between families and school. Please download this app using the Play/App Store on your phone. It is free of charge. We will send out a link for you to access the app when you have accepted your child's place. You will be notified with school updates and up to date information regarding transition for your child. You will be able to send messages to key members of staff with any queries you may have. Please ensure notifications are turned on for this app.

Our school website will be updated regularly with transition information and you will receive a Welcome Admissions Pack in the post.

We would like to thank you again for choosing St Kentigern's Catholic Primary School and we look forward to meeting you in due course.  


With kindest regards,
Mrs Emma Harris
Reception Teacher

We recently had a parents survey - April 2024 and would like to share parents comments:


"School and staff are excellent,exceptional,and always professional and available.They work with so
much love;we couldn't have chosen a better school than this.10 stars for St.Kentigern's"


"Mrs Harris & Mrs Hilton are just the most kind and loving teachers for my child! I wouldn’t have my
child at any other school, they are brilliant!"


"My child has become the most confident little girl since starting here and I really do believe that one
of the main reasons is because this school genuinely cares for each and every child."


"My children are nurtured and supported in both their education and their person. The staff are all
incredible. It is a wonderful school and I feel privileged that my children attend here."
