 Headteacher's Message

We are companions on a journey





In the footsteps of Our Lord

It gives us great pleasure to welcome you  to our website.

We hope that this website is very informative. As you can see from our Mission statement above, as a Catholic school we try our very best to promote positive values and virtues within our school community in which every person is respected as an individual, made in the image of Christ. The promotion of the Gospel values - which are reinforced through the curriculum - also reinforces the British Values.

We are proud of the academic achievements of our pupils however your child’s social, moral and spiritual formation is just as important to us. We strive to value who your child is and what makes them individual and special.

If you wish to have a look at our Ethos and Values statement visit the page below.

If you wish to get in contact about anything, please send us an email or phone the office.

COVID-19 Advice

If a child displays any symptoms of Coronavirus the child must be kept away from school and have a test as soon as possible.

If a child or adult develops Coronavirus the whole household must self isolate for fourteen days.

If there is a case in school the whole bubble will be asked to self isolate for fourteen days. We will obviously let you know if this occurs.   

If you look at the document from Bolton Council to the right this will be very useful. 

A copy of the school attendance policy in regard to the above is included in the school attendance policy. Click on the link below.

If your child has to self isolate at home work will be set. This letter explains all of this

Reception Intake 2021

In this unprecedented time, nothing is the same and unfortunately for parents looking to find a school for their children starting in Reception class in September 2021 this is an even more difficult time.

Obviously we cannot invite prospective new parents into school this year to have a look around school so we have made a small video to show you around St Columba's

Miss McCann our Reception teacher will take you on a journey of the school.

If you wish to ring up and speak to either myself or Miss McCann please do not hesitate.

Have a look at our Reception 2021 intake clip below and the short introduction by Fr Alf our Parish Priest.

If you want to ask anything please do not hesitate to call us on 01204 333421
