Holy Family Catholic Primary School is located in the village of Cronton and is part of Knowsley LA although many of our children come from the Halton area.
We are a one form entry school with 214 children attending. We have a shared nursery with Cronton CE School, although many of our children come from a variety of different settings. When starting at Holy Family School, children therefore start in our Reception Class.
We believe firmly that children should be given time to develop the skills they need in order to access more formal learning. Our approach ensures that as our children move from the Foundation Stage into Key Stage 1 in Year 1, they still have access to a curriculum that best meets their needs. Our Reception Class and Year 1 Class have shared areas of learning and have a shared outdoor classroom. Staff work extremely hard to develop children’s learning through their own interests.
