St Wilfrid’s School is a voluntary aided Catholic primary school for children aged 4 years to 11 years of age. The nursery unit is non-denominational and has a separate admissions criteria. We have around 320 pupils on roll plus a nursery offering 26 part-time morning or afternoon places. St Wilfrid's RC Primary School opened as a one-form entry school in 1959 in Shawsdale Road on the Firs estate. Then in 2012, we had an exciting new build that will take us to a two-form entry primary school. Currently there are two classes in each year group up to and including year 4. We have bright, cheerful classrooms, ICT suite, library and 2 halls used for both PE and lunch. We have large playgrounds and some super climbing frames.
As a voluntary aided school we are part of the Catholic Diocese of Birmingham and we offer a moral education, which follows the teachings of the Church and encourages the children to grow in love and respect for one another and the world about them. Through a rich and varied curriculum, opportunities are provided for the children to develop lively and enquiring minds. They are encouraged to grow in confidence and maturity and develop relevant skills for the future. We help the children to consider world problems such as famines and disasters, environmental issues and local concerns and we support their efforts to alleviate the suffering and hardships of others.
St Wilfrd’s is recognised as a National Healthy School, and we continually educate, encourage and support all of our children in living healthy lifestyles through eating, physical activity, emotional well-being and PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education). This contributes significantly in providing all our children with the knowledge, understanding, skills and attitudes to make decisions about being and staying safe, while enjoying and achieving in what they do. We work with Evolve, a social impact company, to help provide children with high quality PE lessons and a range of after school clubs.
