Catherine Infant School

"We are all Stars"

Our vision is to create a happy, caring and stimulating learning environment where all children are inspired to work hard to achieve their full potential. Through a broad and balanced education all children will grow in self esteem and confidence to become caring and responsible individuals. 

A very warm welcome to Catherine Infant School. 

We are a large infant school situated in the heart of the Belgrave area of Leicester city. We have 392 pupils taught in 12 full time classes and 2 part time nurseries. Our children come from all over the world and speak many different languages.

Our school is a very special place. We pride ourselves on providing a warm, caring, nurturing environment for all our pupils and are absolutely committed to meeting the needs of every pupil.  All pupils are encouraged to reach their full potential regardless of background, ability or need. 

Our governors, senior leaders, teachers and support staff are committed to working together to provide a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum for our pupils to ensure a firm foundation in reading, writing and mathematical skills. Through a broad range of stimulating and challenging learning experiences our pupils are encouraged to apply these skills to deepen and widen their learning in all areas of the curriculum. In addition, through our varied after school clubs and child care provision, we offer our pupils the opportunity to further extend their learning in sport, art, dance and the wider skills of life such as cooking and healthy eating. 

At Catherine Infant School we encourage and work in partnership with parents. This enhances and contributes significantly to pupils learning and the progress they make in school. We ensure that parents are kept fully informed about their child's achievement and progress and how they can support their learning at home. 

We would be delighted to welcome you to our school should you wish to visit and see what we have to offer. Please contact the office on 0116 2625422 to make an appointment. 

We hope to meet you soon!

Mrs. J. Harrold
