Holy Souls Catholic Primary School is a popular oversubscribed school in the east of Birmingham.
We have strong links with our parish Church and community, Canon Jonathan Veasey is the parish priest with Father Alex Taylor our curate.
Our school is two form entry in Years 2 to 6. We have 45 pupils in Year 1 and Reception.
Our Early Years Foundation Stage has 45 children in Reception. Our Early Years provision offers a wide variety of experiences and opportunities for our pupils to express themselves and learn. Our pupils' personal, social and emotional development is key and our dedicated team of EYFS staff ensure pupils' needs are met every day. Child initiated learning is a fundamental part of our practice in EYFS enabling our pupils to develop quickly into independent learners.
In Key Stage 1 our pupils experience a broad and balanced curriculum where Religious Education alongside a high emphasis on reading is crucial to success in both writing and mathematics. Our pupils achieve well at the end of Key Stage 1.
In Key Stage 2 pupils continue to engage with the wider curriculum and focus on developing a broad range of skills in Religious Education, literacy and numeracy in particular. One of our fundamental aims is to prepare the children for secondary school, getting them ready for the next stage of their education.
Our curriculum is robust, our curriculum is rigorous and our curriculum is broad and balanced. We place great emphasis on being a 'physically active school' and as such we host a number of sporting activities and actively compete in many local and national events throughout the year.
We also have a thriving choir that performs regularly for events in school, in the parish and beyond.
We have numerous clubs which take part before and after the school day. These change every term to give pupils the opportunity to take part in the club of their choice. These clubs include opportunities to develop physical skills, musical skills, art skills and drama skills.
We welcome everyone into our school, it is a place where we care, it is a place where we pray together, in our school everyone one is important and it is a place where we learn.
