Welcome to Cardinal Newman
Mrs. Catherine Burnham, Headteacher
Cardinal Newman Catholic Primary School is a friendly and successful two-form-entry school serving the parishes of St Erconwald’s, Walton-on-Thames and All Saints, Hersham. We work closely together as a community of learners, believers and friends to enable our children to reach their full potential, through excellent pastoral care and exciting learning opportunities. Our strong partnership with parents is key to our children’s happiness.
You are most welcome to visit our school community in action!
Catholic Schools Inspection - Outstanding!
Following our inspection at the end of September 2021, we are delighted to have been awarded “Outstanding” in all areas inspected! Well done to the whole school community for working together to achieve this for our children! We work hard to serve our children and families all year round, but we are pleased to have that achievement recognised by Catholic Schools Inspectors. The full report can be accessed below but some of our favourite quotes include:
"Cardinal Newman is an Outstanding Catholic school because:
“Pupils have a real sense of belonging to this family”
“Pastoral care is a significant strength.”
“Children approach their learning with great interest, passion and enthusiasm and, despite the challenges of the pandemic, achieve very well.”
“The mission statement is central and permeates all aspects of school life.”
