Welcome to St Anselm’s Catholic Primary School. Our school is part of a wonderful community which includes our local Parish church. We are a welcoming and happy community and our door is always open to those who want to come and visit us. We are a Voluntary Aided Catholic Primary School, our School was founded in 1921 to educate Catholic children in Southall.
At St Anselm’s we see ourselves as more than just a school but as a school family. We are a Catholic, Christian, Community and all aspects of our school life and work reflect our faith. St Anselm’s life was characterised by holiness, honesty, courage and great learning, we fully promote these values at our school.
The mission of St Anselm’s Catholic Primary is to provide a Catholic education that inspires our school family to excellence in all our God-given talents. We provide a Catholic curriculum, which is broad and balanced, recognising that every pupil is unique and is created in the image of God.
Our curriculum is designed to enable every child to be well-equipped to be active citizens in service to the world. Our Building the Kingdom Project helps us to give a practical expression to our Gospel Values and British Values. One way is to focus on "How can we make the world a better place for all of God's children?" This motto has helped us to in our response to Pope Francis’ “Laudato Si”, and "Fratelli Tutti". This is a wonderful opportunity for the children to engage in Catholic Social Teaching and the teachings of the Church in a practical way.
We also provide a wide range of extra-curricular activities and strong pastoral support.
Our Mission Statement “In God’s love we live, learn and grow” is central to the school’s philosophy of growing in faith.
Our School Vision is "Success for All."
Our School Rules & Values:
1) Be honest.
2) Always try your best.
3) Be kind.
4) Respect everyone.
At St Anselm's, each child is given every opportunity to develop their talents to the full and to discover how they can use their gifts for the good of society in a happy, well-ordered and caring environment. We believe that each child is made in the image and likeness of God and as such, really deserve the best life chances we can offer.
We also ensure every child is prepared for life in Great Britain by actively promoting British Values:
