Hello, my name is Nikki Stevens and I have had the privilege of serving as Headteacher of this wonderful school for over twenty years. My primary aim is to provide a very special environment where pupils and staff can grow and learn together in harmony, living out the Christian values we hold dear. Do take the time to explore our site and get to know us a little better.
Veronica Mahon is our Deputy Headteacher. She has worked at St. Teresa's since 1995 and her two children are past pupils of the school.
Veronica currently teaches our Year 6 pupils. She leads our curriculum and coordinates RE across the school.
St. Teresa's Catholic Primary serves the two parish communities of St. Teresa of the Child Jesus,
Rochford and St. John Fisher, Prittlewell.
Our CORE VALUES are: COMPASSION, WISDOM, JUSTICE, RESPONSIBILITY, INTEGRITY,COURAGE, HOPE, RESPECT.
There are currently 205 pupils on roll having opened in 1973 with just 38! There have been four Headteachers in this time: Mr. Arthur Evans, Mrs. Lorna Pounder, Mr. Paul Collingwood and Mrs. Nikki Stevens.
We were sorry to hear that Mrs. Lorna Pounder died in April 2015. Mr. Evans passed away during 2003. May they both rest in peace.
OfSTED Inspectors visited the school in January 2015 and judged the school as "Good." They identified a number of outstanding features, including the behaviour and safety of pupils. Diocesan Inspectors carried out a Section 48 inspection in Spring 2013. They judged the school to be "a good Catholic School."

St. Teresa's has a long association with Edisonlearning, who are our chosen School Improvement Partners. We have introduced Edisonlearning's "Quality Framework for Learning and Teaching." This was recognised as one of the key strategies used to improve the quality of teaching in our recent OfSTED inspection. Coaching is at the heart of the Framework and dedicated time is provided for teachers to ensure this takes place at least half-termly.
