Last year we signed up to the CAFOD's Live Simply award. You can learn all about the award through this video:


The aim of the award, inspired by Pope Francis' letter 'Laudato Si', is to encourage communities to work at local, national and global level. The work should be either to help people live SIMPLY, SUSTAINABLY, and in SOLIDARITY with others. 

Here at Holy Family, we encourage all staff and pupils to do as Jesus taught us 'In all things, love' and so we aim to think beyond ourselves and how fortunate we are here in Blackpool.

We dedicated a year to the award and, after an assessment with pupils and staff, we were fortunate to be awarded a plaque in recognition of our hard work.

We continue to follow the example of Jesus and try to serve others.


At Holy Family we are extremely fortunate to have the church so close to our school grounds meaning that we can visit at any time! Children are supported on their spiritual journey by many people within the parish community and we are incredibly lucky to have Father David Burns, who works across both parishes of St Bernadette’s and Holy Family, as our school chaplain. He is a regular visitor at school, with classes taking it in turns for a class Mass each week.

We welcome all parents, carers and our local parishoners to join us in our worship every Thursday afternoon. Please phone the school office on 01253 354496 if you would like any more details.

Why not come along and enjoy the celebrations for Mass on Sunday at our church?

Mass begins at 11:30 am every Sunday at Holy Family and 10:00 am at St Bernadette’s.

LENT 2023

Last Lent we raised over £600 in the CAFOD BIG LENT WALK! Each week had a different theme - our neighbours would come out to see what we dressed up as each week!

Thank you for your generosity with supporting our BIG WALK.
