Welcome From The Head Teacher

"Today, let us only think of God's love."

  Pope Francis



Welcome to our website! The Convent of Jesus and Mary Catholic Infant School & Nursery is a place steeped in a rich history of faith, service, and excellence in educating and nurturing the children and families it serves. I feel very privileged to be the custodian of such a wonderful school. It is my strong belief that leading a school, in this present day, is one of the most challenging, exciting and stimulating jobs that anybody could hope to have.


As an Infant school and Nursery, we aim to plant the seeds for success through a spiritual, caring, and safe learning environment, alongside a creative and enriching, broad and balanced curriculum; that is inspiring, ambitious, and inclusive, striving to stir a love of learning and encouraging every child to reach their full potential.


At the Convent of Jesus and Mary Catholic Infant School & Nursery we are extremely proud of our heritage and our academic achievements. In 2010/2011 Ofsted judged our school as outstanding and we continue to devote all our efforts to remain a place of excellence where every child feels confident, cherished, makes long-lasting friendships and memories, enjoys, and achieves.


In September 2021, after a year of providing leadership support to our neighbouring Junior School, the two school became a Federation – The Federation of the Convent of Jesus and Mary Catholic Infant School & Nursery and St Mary Magdalen’s Catholic Junior School. The Governing Board, the staff and wider school community are working diligently to ensure both schools thrive and succeed in their mission.


We are a Catholic school community who seeks to live out the teachings of Jesus Christ and is permeated by the Gospel values of Love, Faith, Peace, Community, Justice, Service and Reconciliation. The staff and pupils uphold these values in partnership with parents, governors, and the parish as we all endeavour to be the people God wants us to be.


Thank you for taking the time to visit our school website.


With very best wishes,


Miss E Fonseca
