Our Mission Statement...

We have a new Headteacher!


Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing on behalf of the Governing Body to inform you that we have successfully appointed a permanent Catholic Headteacher to lead St Wulstan’s and St Edmund’s Catholic Primary School & Nursery from 1st September 2018. 

Mrs Jane Barnes is an experienced teacher of Catholic education. She currently is the Deputy Headteacher at St Kentigern’s Catholic Primary School in Blackpool and has a wealth of knowledge in the leadership and management of a Catholic school. Mrs Barnes will be visiting school in the Summer term to meet with staff and children to ensure the handover is as smooth as possible. Mrs Barnes is very excited about her new role and I’m sure you will join us in welcoming her to our school family.

I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the Governing Body, to place on record our sincere thanks to Mrs Sant for her exceptional hard work and management skills over the past year. We wish her well for the future.

We thank you for the support and patience in recruiting a permanent Headteacher for our school. It was imperative that we sought the best candidate to lead our school and we feel that this has now been achieved.

Yours sincerely


Mr S McLaughlin

Chair of the Governing Body

A letter from Mrs Barnes, our new Headteacher


Dear Parents and Carers,

I am writing to introduce myself as the new Headteacher of St. Wulstan’s and St. Edmund’s Catholic Primary School where I will take up my position in September 2018.

My name is Jane Barnes, I live in Preston with my husband and dog; my son is at university studying Marine Biology.  I have twenty-five years’ experience in teaching. My current position is Deputy Headteacher at St. Kentigern’s Catholic Primary School in Blackpool, but I have also taught at English Martyrs’ Catholic Primary School in Preston and St. John’s Catholic Primary in Skelmersdale.  Whilst I have experience across the whole primary age range, I am an Early Years specialist and I am thrilled to be coming to a school with nursery provision.  In addition, I have been SENCO for over ten years and I am passionate about supporting children with additional needs.  I have also been coordinator for music, RE and computing.

I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting your children during my two visits to school and interview day. 

I was extremely impressed with how smart they looked in their uniforms and how well behaved they were.

I look forward to meeting you all in September and working with you, in order to ensure that your children make the best possible progress during their time at St. Wulstan’s and St. Edmund’s.


Yours sincerely

Mrs E.J. Barnes
