"This is a happy school, where leaders, governors, staff and pupils share a common aim to be the best."
(Ofsted, October 2015)
A warm welcome to St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School. We are an aspirational school where all can achieve. Our Catholic ethos is that each one of us is unique and each one of us is special. We are a two-form entry primary school in Woodley, Berkshire, with 60 places per year group. Our Ofsted inspection in October 2015 graded us a good school with outstanding features.
We are in pursuit of high expectations and high achievement for all our pupils. Whatever a child’s background or starting point, we want to make sure that they finish Year 6 with the academic skills, social skills and knowledge necessary to succeed. As a Catholic school, we provide a calm, nurturing learning environment where teachers really know pupils and their parents, and every child can flourish.
We want every pupil to have a love of learning and be well prepared for the transition to secondary school. We focus on every child being literate and numerate. The school continually exceeds national academic expectations. The curriculum is centred around a knowledge approach. It is richly varied and affords opportunities for each and every pupil to shine. Rigour and a desire to improve are integral. We promote a no excuses culture at St Dominic Savio. Aspiration and a Catholic ethos which ensures pupils are consistently kind and friendly are absolute.
We look forward to welcoming you to our fabulous school. Do contact us if you would like to see us in action.
Mr James Broadbridge
Look at yourselves.
Can you see how you have a body with lots of different parts?
Each part has a special job to do, hasn’t it?
If we are working with Jesus, then we are all like the parts of one body,
for we are all joined together
and we all have a special job to do.
If we all do our own jobs,
then we will make the body of Jesus work properly.
