My name is Mrs Nash and I have the best job in the world as I am the Executive Headteacher of St Thomas More, St Brigid's and St Columba's Catholic Primary Schools. In addition to this, I am also an Ofsted inspector and a Section 48 inspector for the Archdiocese of Birmingham.
St Thomas More is a thriving school with brilliant staff, fantastic children and supportive parents and governors. We are a happy school with a great team of dedicated staff who are here to ensure your child reaches their full potential. We are on a journey of improvement and this was recognised at our last Ofsted monitoring visit on Tuesday 6th November 2018.
As a Catholic school we strive for the best - this is what your child deserves. As a parent I know how important it is to trust your child's school. At St Thomas More you can rest assured that your child is in a happy, safe, caring, nurturing, and stimulating environment.
Our mission statement expresses that 'Christ is the centre of our school community, where we live, love and learn together'. We strive for excellence in teaching and an enjoyment of learning is at the heart of everything that we do.
We hope that you will enjoy looking at our website and find out a little more about our school. You are most welcome to visit our school and see for yourself all the lovely things that we do on a day to day basis. Please pop in and have a cuppa. You will always be made welcome.

'At St Thomas More School you will be sure of a great education and will make lots of new friends too. Our mission tells us that we need to live, love, and learn together and we try to remember this every day in our actions'

'RE requires a lot of understanding and thought since the Bible isn't always easy to interpret. Luckily our amazing RE teachers in Year 6 guide me and support me so I can fully understand the class task. RE also provides excellent opportunities for meditation which helps us to understand our lessons in a deeper way.'

'Our outside environment is enriched by a beautiful garden area where we can sit and play in the water and sand, play board games and meet with our friends to talk. We all have the opportunity to grow lovely plants and vegetables for the garden. Reception have their own playground with a play house and lots of play equipment including bikes for exercise. There are another two playgrounds for Infants and Juniors with games painted on the ground to encourage us to play together. We can play football and running games to keep us fit too! There are grassed areas and we use these in the summer months.'
Year Five pupil
'We have lots of incentives and rewards. Praise Assemblies on a Friday are great fun and some pupils get to go and have 'nibbles with Mrs Nash' if they are the superstar of the week. At Christmas, a superstar from each class was selected for their brilliant behaviour and work ethic during the term. They had a banquet with Mrs Nash.'
