On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I am delighted to welcome you to our school website. We hope that our website will give you an idea of what makes St Anselm’s School the special, spiritual and enriching environment that we are all proud to be part of.
St Anselm’s is a two form entry primary school in the London Borough of Harrow, Middlesex in the parish of Our Lady and St Thomas of Canterbury. We have high standards for academic achievement; with progress and attainment consistently and significantly above the national and LA average. However, our school is about so much more than just results. Everything we do is underpinned by our Catholic faith, and we work in partnership with parents and the Church to provide opportunities to develop the spirituality of our children. Our mission Statement, ‘Learning and growing together through prayer, belief and love’ is at the heart of our Catholic ethos which permeates all areas of school life.
At St Anselm’s we pride ourselves on working together to create a community based on strong relationships and with this in mind we ensure that all children are welcomed and nurtured within a partnership of support between school, home and parish. We are supported by our parish priest, our dedicated governing body and committed, enthusiastic and hardworking Staff and Parent Association.
We know that children learn best when they feel happy, secure and well cared for, therefore our first priority is the provision of strong pastoral care in a nurturing environment. We aim to develop in our children a passion and love of learning by providing an enriched, broad and balanced curriculum; that delivers a high quality, inclusive education for all, so that each may reach their full potential.
As a result of our strong community links, pastoral care and the curriculum we offer, we are a happy and highly successful school committed to providing an outstanding and inspiring education for all our children.
Mrs Maria O'Connell
