A Welcome from our Headteacher

Welcome to St Aidan’s,
I am extremely proud to join a strong Catholic school community who are on a rapid journey of improvement all striving for excellence. I began my career at St Aidan’s as an NQT many years ago and now feel blessed to return to lead the school on its successful pathway.

St Aidan’s is a good Catholic school, where “pupils achieve well and enjoy their learning in religious education. The quality of the prayer and collective worship provided by the school and the extent to which pupils contribute to and benefit from its Catholic life are good.” (Section 48 Inspection, Diocese of Brentwood, September 2017).  

Our school mission statement: ‘Together we enjoy learning, achieving, sharing and praying. Let Jesus’ love shine through in everything we do’ is at the heart of all we do here at St Aidan’s. Every child is provided with the opportunity to shine and achieve.

St Aidan’s is now a school that Requires Improvement following its last inspection in December 2018; where the school was removed from Special measures after a journey of hard work, commitment and passion from the whole school community. Personal development, behaviour and welfare was graded Good due to the pupils feeling safe, happy and ready to learn. Our pupils wear their uniform with pride and enjoy coming to school each day!

As part of the Good Shepherd Catholic Trust on 1st September 2019; we have been joined by a further 5 Catholic schools into the Multi Academy Trust. We are looking forward to working collaboratively with the MAT all striving for excellent Catholic education for all our pupils.

The community is stronger than ever and the children are kind, hardworking and positive. The journey of school improvement is equally challenging, rewarding and exciting for everyone concerned.

I am delighted to be part of this process and thank you all for your continuous commitment and support on our journey.

Victoria Campling
