Website Update - March 30th 2020

Many of you have been asking about ways that you can stay in contact with members of staff and to send in your pictures, drawings and paintings for us to show on the site and in our weekly TV programme.

Today I have arranged for new email accounts to be set up that will remain active while the school is closed. You can use these if you want to ask advice about the work that has been set. These emails are displayed on each class page.

Please keep checking the class pages for the latest work as these are being updated each week.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Provision Update - March 27th 2020

St Bernard's Learning Community work very closely in partnership with each other and do all that we can to support our children as a Catholic community. At the present time, we feel that it is safer for the students to work in their own schools so that we can promote social distancing. However, should staffing levels mean that one of our schools cannot remain open, Headteachers will work together to provide a school for the children to attend in order to ensure that emergency care can be given. Should this situation happen, we will communicate this to all parents as an update. 


At St Gerard's we are working hard to continue to support our key workers and will be open during the school holidays but at the moment it is our intention NOT to be open on Good Friday and Bank Holiday Monday. 


Please continue to stay safe and support each other through this difficult time and contact us if we can be of further assistance - thank you 

Mrs Hudson

Welcome to St. Gerard's Catholic Primary School.

Welcome to St Gerard’s Catholic Primary, a Catholic Voluntary Academy for girls and boys of primary school age (4-11 years old). 

I am proud to be Headteacher of St.Gerard’s Catholic Primary School and I truly believe that I have the most rewarding job in the world. The school is very much at the heart of the parish and part of the family of the Diocese of Hallam. In our school Jesus is at the centre, alive in all we do, think and say.

When a child enters the school we welcome the whole family as we believe that parents are the first educators of their children. Working in partnership I believe we can provide a high quality education and enable all our children to strive to be the best they can be.

I am fortunate to work alongside a fantastic team who share my vision and work hard to ensure that we provide only the best for the children we serve.


The children and staff are excited about striving for excellence and all work extremely hard to ensure that we continue to make St. Gerard’s School a place where every child and every family truly matter.


The website will give you a taste of some of the exciting things that happen at St.Gerard’s but the best way to find out about our warm, positive atmosphere and to experience the Catholic ethos which runs throughout is to come and make an appointment to visit our school.

Find out about the history of St. Gerard's School...

This is one of the photographs from our archive. It dates from 1931 and shows the original headteacher, Mr. James Conroy, standing outside the main entrance to school.

You couldn't recreate this same photograph today because  a new entrance was built in 1998.

The children are positioned  where the blue carpeted area and seating are today. The window behind Mr. Conroy is now hidden but it is still there inside a cupboard...

The archway above the door is still visible though - just outside Mrs. Glossop's office!
