Headteacher's Welcome - Ethos and Values


Dear Friends

Welcome to Alston Lane Catholic Primary School. We are a single form entry school situated on the outskirts of Longridge, Preston. The school primarily caters for Roman Catholic children but children of all faiths and denominations are welcome.

The school's mission is ... 'To develop the whole child, leading them towards reaching their full potential within a Catholic environment'.

At Alston Lane, we value and promote excellent behaviour for learning, challenging and fun learning experiences and supportive relationships between all stakeholders. Our relationship with parents is especially important if we are to help each child reach their potential - academically and creatively.

We value the happiness of every child above all else because without this, they cannot engage with learning or achieve their targets. We hope, through our intervention and parental support, that children will become independent, life-long learners who enjoy school, leaving Alston Lane with skills for life and their next stage of education.

Yours sincerely


M FitzGibbon BA QTS, NPQH
