Welcome to Billinge St Aidan's C of E Primary School

A child's first step into full-time education is very important and it must be a positive and happy experience. Our aim at St Aidan's is to provide a calm, happy and secure environment which is also stimulating, challenging and exciting.

Your child will gain in confidence and initiative, work hard, learn to think independently and experience the satisfaction which comes from their own achievements and successes.  Our dedicated and professional teaching staff are committed to developing the best that is in every child.

We have developed this web site to provide information for parents considering St Aidan's for their child's education and to provide a wealth of useful information and resources for parents of children already with us.

Headlines Of The Week

Reception News:

The Wigan Observer will be in school on Tuesday afternoon to take a group picture of our Reception children. This photo will appear in the paper and there will be the opportunity for parents to purchase this if they wish.


Two Saints players visited Year 6 on Tuesday to deliver an anti-bullying message to the class. They explained how to get help and gave school some posters. Mrs Ravenscroft will re-enforce this message in assembly on Monday.

School Chaplain:

The Diocese have provided a School Chaplain. Her name is Denise and she will officially begin at St Aidan’s on Thursday the 27th of September. We have lots of plans for Denise and are confident that she will continue to help us ‘shine’ and ensure that children have even more chances to explore their spirituality and learn from The Bible. Denise will be with us every Thursday and Friday up till about 2.30pm.

French Day:

On Wednesday the 26th of September we will be celebrating all things French. All children including Nursery are welcome to wear red, white and blue. During the day the children will also have a French lesson.

School Dinners:

The cost of school dinners is now £2.35 a day (£11.75 a week).
