Welcome to the new website for St Modwen's Catholic Primary School.
We are one of two Catholic primary schools serving the Burton on Trent area. We currently have 270 children on roll. Later this school year we shall be relocating to a brand new school site on Tutbury Rd in Burton. You can read all about this through the 'News and Events' section.
We hope that you will find all the information that you need about our school on this site.
If you have any questions or wish to make a visit to school in relation to an admissions application, please contact the school office and we would be happy to welcome you.

St Modwen's Sports Teams are playing regularly, click here to see the results!
Most recently, we won a tag rugby tournament at Robert Sutton! Well done to the team.
On Thursday 27th February, the children took part in 'Ghana Day'. The aim of the day was to learn about a very different culture and raise money for May's Ghana trip in the process (see below). Nearly £150 was raised in total!
The children all wrote letters to pen-pals in Ghana. Mr Salisbury will be taking the letters to Ghana in May. The children in Ghana will then be writing replies to our children.
The day made the Burton Mail! Click here to see the article. Notice the picture of the children dressed in their Ghana flag colours! (Red, green & yellow).
Thank you for all of the money raised!
Back in November, the Y6 children put on a Children in Need fair. The children worked extremely hard to plan the events and run the various stalls. A huge thanks must go to the children for all of their fantastic work, the parents for their support, and Mrs Horobin for helping the children run such a successful event.
Take a look at our dedicated fundraising page to check out our pictures and our total! Hopefully the money we raised is already having an impact.
During May half term 2014, Mr Salisbury will be visiting a rural area of Ghana with a team of Burton Albion Community Trust supporters. The aim is to make a real difference in the area, with a team consisting of people with a wide range of skills.
To help the team make a difference in Ghana and to sponsor Mr Salisbury for the wide range of fundraising activities, visit: www.justgiving.com/msalisbury
