Welcome to St Anne’s Catholic Primary School

Learning to live by faith and to be known by love

We are a Voluntary Aided school in Caversham , Reading, serving the Catholic parish of Our Lady and St Anne, which is part of the Archdiocese of Birmingham.  We welcome children of any faith and no faith.

Basing our work on the Gospel values of Love and Service, we recognise that every child is a gift from God and that the first and best teachers of any child are his or her own parents.  As a result, we welcome the opportunity to work closely in partnership with the amazing community that we serve.  We are extremely proud of our children and their achievements, our academic standards and the selfless commitment of our staff and of our Parent/Staff Association.

Currently, we have 197 children across 7 year groups.    We also have a 26 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 8.50am 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.

Do contact the school office and pop in for a visit!

Acting Headteacher 


Please find below our newsletter for this week - Friday 15th November 2019.  It can also be found on the Newsletters page.

Worship through Song is the highlight of the week.  We love it!  Listen to one of our favourites!

Please note that all children will receive their flu vaccination on 29 November.  See below for a link to the immunisation website:



Week Commencing 18.11.19

Don't forget, we have Parents' Evenings for all children from Years 1 to 6 on Wednesday and Thursday.  Please do make an appointment to talk with your child's class teacher.  It is really important that you know how well s/he is doing and what his/her targets are.

The booking sheets are available each morning on the playground.  Alternatively, please phone the office and Trudie will help you book a slot.


'Wake n Shake' will start this week.  From 8.40-8.50 on Tuesdays and Thursdays, our Sports coach will lead a dance session to wake children up before they go into class.  Make sure to arrive in plenty of time to join in the groove!


The Daily Mile has got underway!  The last fifteen minutes of lunchbreak each day are dedicated to getting everyone moving and challenging themselves to increase their fitness levels.  Running/walking around the playground (or the field in sunnier weather), we will measure how the whole school's fitness level increases over the course of the year.
