At Holy Family Catholic Primary School we believe that every child can reach their potential through hard work and determination.  We encourage the children to have resilience and to keep trying especially when they find work more difficult.

Our teachers are very skilled at knowing how much to push pupils so that they are engaging with worthwhile and productive struggle as this equates to - high challenge, low stress, thinking required and so effective learning.

We have high expectations for all pupils regardless of their starting point.
