Our virtues - LOVE, RESPECT and KINDNESS.
We all need to be aware of these and model them for our children, helping them to make the right choices as they move around our community.
'Children get off to a flying start in the early years. Staff are ambitious for all children. They believe that all can succeed with the right support.'

'St. William's Catholic Primary School is a good Catholic school, where leaders, governors, staff and pupils work hard to provide and sustain a loving,

Welcome to St William's Catholic Primary School
Serving the parish of Our Lady of Lourdes and St William's - at the heart of the West Bradford.
We are very happy to welcome you to our school website.
Our Mission Statement is reflected in the whole life of our school which is a worshiping community, nurturing the Faith of all those in our care. As a small one-form entry, family school, the spiritual, moral, emotional and social well-being of every child is a priority to us. We value the links between school, home and parish, recognising the shared responsibility we have in the all-round development of all of our children.
Our broad and balanced curriculum is enriched with visitors, visits, events and activities to inspire in each child a joy of learning. We expect all of our children to be honest, respectful and caring to others and to work hard to develop the skills and knowledge that will allow them to achieve success now and in the future. We provide a range of experiences and opportunities to make mistakes in a safe environment, reaffirming that we need to work hard, persevere and never give up in order to succeed. Effort and hard work are celebrated as part of our belief that we are all life-long learners.
Families are provided with regular information about all aspects of school life in our half -termly class curriculum newsletters. We are very proud of all of our children - the progress they make and all that they achieve. We offer many opportunities for discussion about, and celebration of, your child's progress throughout the school year. Working closely together we can ensure that both you and your child have a happy and successful journey through primary school!
We extend a warm invitation to all families to come and see why St. William's Catholic Primary School is such a special place!

Young Voices 2020
Our school choir performed at the Young Voices event, in Sheffield Arena, last Friday. The children really enjoyed themselves. ‘I enjoyed singing with famous musicians’ (Jahziah).
‘It was such fun! I liked shining the torches and singing with a famous singer, called Tony Hadley’ (Iylah)
Mr Clayton said, ‘It was a thoroughly enjoyable night and seeing the children’s faces made it all worthwhile’. Miss Anderson added, ‘Young Voices is such an amazing experience. We sang with 5,000 children and famous musicians. We enjoyed learning all the songs and performing them in front of a sold-out arena! We will remember that day forever’. Thank you, Miss Anderson & Mr Clayton for your time and effort to help the children prepare for this memorable experience. DVDs will be available to purchase for £9.99. Please contact the school office if you would like to order one.
'Pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is strong. They show respect for difference, including in faiths and cultures.'
