Chair's Message

Message from the Chair of Governors

Dear Pupils, Parents, Staff and Governors,

I hope everyone has had an enjoyable summer break and enjoyed the lovely weather.

I trust all children are beginning to settle into their new year groups. In particular a warm welcome to the children of Year 3 who start a new chapter in their academic journey. Also I wish to welcome their parents and grandparents to the family of St. Begh’s.

The weekend of the 15th and 16th of September marks a momentous occasion as the parish of St. Begh’s celebrates the founding of St Begh’s Church. Starting on Saturday 15th, there will be a flower festival depicting the Joyful Mysteries of the Most Holy Rosary. Then on Sunday 16th September, a Mass of Thanksgiving will be held in St. Begh’s Church at 2.30pm celebrated by our new Bishop Paul Swarbrick and Abbot Paul Stonham – Abbot of Belmont.  Do please come along with your children and families to be part of the celebrations.     

The end of the summer term just gone was particularly hectic with the School being subject to a scheduled Section 48 RE Inspection and in the final week of term, the OFSTED Inspection.

The successful outcome from the denominational Section 48 Inspection conducted by the Lancaster Diocese confirmed that the quality of the Catholic Life and Religious Education at St. Begh’s is Good.

The School are very happy with the outcome of the OFSTED Inspection. Please take time to read the final report which reflects a great achievement for the whole School community (see the 'Reports' tab under 'Information').              

Finally, on behalf of the Governing Body, may I sincerely thank all staff and parents for their work and the ongoing support and that this year will bring many more successes.

I look forward to continuing to work with you in the coming year.


With every good wish,

Rev. Deacon Stephen Scott

Chair of Governors
