Our Mission Statement:
At St Anne’s we live, love and learn as children of God. As children of God we cherish and respect everyone, and help those in need. We love Jesus and share his love with our families and friends and those around us. We support and encourage everybody to do their very best in work and play. We say sorry and forgive each other as Jesus showed us. We celebrate whatever is good. We do our best to make our school a happy place where we can live, love, learn and laugh as children of God.
St Anne’s Catholic Primary School was established in 1898, and since that time has been providing primary education to the children of Reading.
The school was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families. The school is conducted by its Governing Body as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. As a Catholic school we hold the Gospel of Jesus Christ at the heart of our school family. We therefore value our pupils as children of God, entitled to be educated to their full potential. The school shares with parents, the Church and the wider community, the responsibility of leading children to know and love God and to develop an appreciation of His world.
