St Cuthbert’s Primary school is a voluntary aided one form entry primary school situated in Grindon, Sunderland, Tyne and Wear. Our school can accommodate 210 children (Rec- Y6) who are taught in single classes + a 30 place full time equivalent Nursery provision.
We are situated centrally in the parish community of St. Jeanne Jugan, serving the church cluster of Immaculate Heart of Mary (Springwell), and Holy Rosary (Farringdon).
The Governors and staff aim to create a caring Christian community where children can flourish in a stimulating environment. Developing children’s faith is a central part of the school’s mission. Children are given opportunities to pray, reflect and worship throughout the school day. We have high expectations of all our pupils and we are committed to developing every child to the best of their ability.
The school benefits from a superb educational environment with facilities which include extensive grounds, a fully equipped ICT suite, interactive whiteboards in each class, a large dinner hall and a multi purpose hall.
Strong links are maintained with the local parish and local community. Our parish priest, Father Michael Humble, is a frequent visitor to school and has established the whole school regularly joining the parish community to celebrate mass. Father Michael celebrates Mass throughout the school year in our school hall which helps us to strengthen our faith community.
