The name of the school is St. Pancras Catholic Primary School.

The school was founded by and is a part of the Catholic Church. The School is to be conducted as a Catholic school in accordance with Canon Law and the teachings of the Catholic Church, and in accordance with the Trust Deed of the Diocese of East Anglia and in particular: Religious education is to be in accordance with the teachings, doctrines, discipline and general and particular norms of the Catholic Church. Religious worship is to be in accordance with the rites, practices, discipline and liturgical norms of the Catholic Church. And at all times the school is to serve as a witness to the Catholic faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

In April 2019 St Pancras became a member of our Lady of Walsingham Catholic Multi-Academy Trust. The structure and committees of our Governing Body reflect the structure of the Trust Board.  The school has two committees of the Trust Board which both meet termly - Resources and Teaching, Learning & Standards.
