Learning to live by faith and to be known by love

The children of St Anne's are known for their smiles, their generosity and their passion for learning!  We are a vibrant, happy, forward-looking school in the heart of Caversham for children of any faith and no faith, where every pupil is scaffolded to aim for the stars.  Here, we believe that children learn best when they feel safe, are loved and are challenged.  As a result, teachers are committed to providing outstanding pastoral care alongside the highest quality, engaging learning experiences.  

As recognised in our 2019 Ofsted report,

The school is a small but close-knit community. There is a strong sense of family values. Relationships between staff and pupils are warm and caring. The school is highly inclusive. Pupils with all different types of need are welcomed and feel part of the school community .... At the heart of this is a strong, shared commitment to every child’s success, underpinned by the school’s ethos...'

Our curriculum provision is outstanding and involves teaching by subject specialists from Year 3 meaning that children experience the best quality teaching across the entire curriculum.  

Currently, we have 185 children across 7 year groups.    We also have a 21 place Nursery.  Children come into our Reception class in the year that they are 5 and move up to secondary school at the end of Year 6, when they are 11.  Our school day starts at 8.40am and finishes at 3.25pm.  However, we do also have a super Before and After School Club, run by school staff which opens at 8.00 and ends at 18.00.

Please do contact the school office for a tour on 01189375537 or contact me direct via email on head@st-annes.reading.sch.uk and I would love to show you round!

    Next Week
    Dear parents and carers, As you are aware, a red weather warning has been issued for Monday and Tuesday this week. At this time, we are still intending to open as normal but will advise parents via School Ping and the Class Whatsapp pages should our position need to change. In order to make things as comfortable for the children as possible, we would kindly ask that they come to school in PE kit on Monday and Tuesday: navy shorts and a white T shirt and that they bring a sun hat. Please note that today, staff were commenting on how few children were wearing hats and some don't even have a water bottle in school! Many thanks, Sarah

    Beach Trip
    Dear parents and carers, By now, you will have heard that we have had to cancel our Beach trip; we are devastated by this! Sadly, with the national weather warning, calls on everyone to stay out of the sun between midday and 3pm, forecasts of even hotter weather at the end of the week and the absence of shade at the beach, we feel it would be irresponsible to proceed. We thank you in advance for your understanding and apologise for the inconvenience caused, especially to those parents who had planned a day off work to come with us. Kind regards, Sarah

    Beach Trip
    Dear parents and carers, We are getting very excited about our upcoming beach trip next Friday (15th July). I hope that this communication will give you all the information you need! If you have any further questions, please email them to admin@st-annes.reading.sch.uk i) Clothing Children should wear shorts or a short skirt and a T shirt. They should bring with them a small towel and a change of underwear, shorts or skirt so that they can change easily on the beach when they have been in the sea. ii) Food/drink Children should bring a packed lunch being mindful of the fact that it may be a hot day and there should be no foods containing nuts. Water will be especially important; please make sure that your child brings plenty to drink. iii) Protection against the sun Please suncream all children using a high factor giving 8 hour or more protection before they come to school. Please also provide your child with a sunhat. It is very unlikely that we will have any shade and there will be no umbrellas so this is really important. iv) Other weather Should rain be predicted, we will still go to the beach! Please do watch the forecast and provide a sweatshirt/waterproof raincoat if appropriate. v) Car seats Young children may wish to use a car seat on the coach. In the case of Nursery children, we would strongly recommend that parents bring a car seat for their child. In the case of other children, this is at the discretion of the parents but the child must be able to carry the seat for themselves. vi) Children may bring a small bucket and spade or other sand toy they are willing to share. vii) Children must bring food, drink and all items in a small rucksack which they can easily carry themselves. We will be leaving school at 9.30am and will be returning at roughly 5pm. We will keep in contact via the Whatsapp groups about the time of our return. Parents should be present to pick up their children as soon as we get back please. Please note that there will be no After School Club on this day. Kind regards, Sarah
