St Kentigern's

R.C Primary School

Catholic Life

At St Kentigern’s we promote the holistic development of each child and provide the best education within a supportive, Catholic environment.

Our  school motto ‘We learn and pray in faith and love” is the cornerstone of everything we do at our school. At St Kentigern’s our goal is to enable each child to develop a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith, promote respect for religious and moral values and tolerance of other races and religions.  Our school aims to cultivate the growth of each child’s potential through the development of respect for self and others. We wish to promote the individual talents and abilities of pupils to ensure that each child fulfils his or her full potential.  We aim to promote a close and co-operative relationship between home, parish and school.


Alongside the Come and See programme, the school follows the Caritas in Action Curriculum. This embeds the principles of Catholic social teaching. It supports children’s moral compass, guiding them on how to live their faith in the world. The school’s CARITAS team are instrumental in working with school staff to support others.  This results in all children in the school being provided with the opportunity to support charities both locally and internationally. All our children will leave St Kentigern’s feeling empowered to help those in need.


Bible Club 

Did you know St Kentigern's has an amazing Bible club? We are the Bible Bunch. Each week a child chooses a Bible passage for us to read, discuss and pray about. Some of our members are getting trained up to share their impressive Bible knowledge in RE lessons across the school. Younger members of our group are buddied up with older children to make sure they have lots of fun.


"This is my favourite club I can go to. And I love learning about God." Year 4 pupil

"I come to Bible Club because I am a Christian and it is important for me to continue to learn more and live my life as a Christian." Year 6 pupil





During the Autumn Term, we celebrate our Harvest Festival with a special class-led assembly and a special mass. All children are asked to contribute non-perishable food items which are displayed as part of the assembly. A group of children then deliver them to the Fallowfield Foodbank
