Welcome to the website of St Teresa's Catholic Primary School, Ashford
St. Teresa's Catholic Primary School is sited in beautiful grounds about 10 minutes' walk from Ashford town centre and close to motorway junction 9 on the M20. The present buildings date back to 1984 but the school goes back to 1899 and has occupied various sites around the town in that time.
We take pride in the fact that this is a happy and industrious school with a real sense of team spirit. As a Catholic school, we embrace our partnership with St.Teresa’s Catholic Church and the wider Catholic community. In addition to baptised Catholic children, we welcome children of other faiths or of no faith.
Our school is a friendly place where people feel welcomed and cared for. A number of our parents were pupils here in the past and new children and parents from outside the area often comment on how quickly they feel part of the school community.
The education of a child is far too important to be left to a school alone. Parents have a very important part to play too. This website gives information about what you can expect of the school and also shows how you can play a part, in the way of partnership, help and support. We want everyone involved in the school to feel part of our school community. Together we will enable students to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
We have been consistently judged good in all inspections, including in the most recent Ofsted inspections in Jan 2020 and RE Inspection in March 2020. We encourage you to read both reports which are very complimentary about the learning journey and care we provide.
We hope you will be able to find all the information you need on the school website and that you will gain a sense of the wonderful children, parents, staff and governance committee we are lucky enough to have in our community.
Mrs. H. Bennett
