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.

Play Leaders

On 1st April, Elenore, Laura & Maciej in Y6 started to train the Y5s to become play leaders. They trained Angela and Delma. They taught them the basic skills of how to be a good play leader. The Y5s did really well and with a few more steps, they will be ready to become full play leaders. Elenore, Laura & Maciej will be training Y5s regularly on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

Ghana Day

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!
