Love one another, as I have loved you.

​​​​​​​A very warm welcome to St. John's Catholic Primary School

My name is Mrs Collier and on behalf of our children, our family of staff and our Governors, I would like to welcome you to our website. We are a school where children and staff live their faith proudly and visibly, a school where prayer and a love of learning are at the heart of what we do, a school that is aspiring to be the very best Catholic School we can be!

A good school provides a rounded education for the whole person. And a good Catholic school, over and above this, should help all its students to become saints.”

Pope Benedict XVI

I feel very privileged to be the leader of such a wonderful family school where all of our stakeholders (children, families, staff, Governors and the community) work together to achieve the best outcomes for our children. We are proud of our unique, vibrant, safe, happy and inclusive community where all that we represent is reinforced by our Mission statement:

Love one another, as I have loved you.’

As a Catholic school our pupils are nurtured and encouraged to use their God-given talents to become the person God has called them to be. An understanding of these Gospel values underpins their interactions with those around them, both in school and beyond in the wider world ensuring that they become responsible global citizens. They are also confident and self-assured, and above all, reflective and caring modelling themselves on Jesus. The school is fully inclusive recognising that our vocation is to support the children on their journey of faith and learning.

We provide many opportunities through the broad curriculum and beyond to enrich the education and spiritual life of all our children – we achieve this through visits, visitors and a range of exciting activities. Our Catholic life can be seen in all aspects of the curriculum and our children perform very well over time when compared with local and national benchmarks.

Over the years your child is with us we look forward to working closely with the whole family and the Parish sharing the responsibility for providing a quality education in a strong spiritual setting. We provide parents with lots of information about their child’s education through this website and Parent Hub.

We hope that your child will leave our community ready for the next stage of their learning at Secondary school but rooted in love, compassion, wisdom, courage, dignity, service for others and justice for all - the start of their journey to be the best version of who God wants then to be…

We have a committed and hardworking staff team who provide excellent teaching and learning opportunities for the children in our school. It is a daily joy and privilege to have been given the opportunity to serve the community as the Head Teacher. I hope that your digital journey through these pages leaves you with a small impression of what makes St John’s a successful and truly special Catholic primary school.

If you have any questions about our school or the provision we can offer please telephone or email and Mrs Jackson will be able to help you.
