Welcome to St John XXIII Catholic Primary School. We are an Outstanding two form entry primary school with a Nursery attached.
Our school is a wonderful family community, where our children are supported and encouraged by our parents, staff and governors. Each child's talents are nurtured and developed throughout their years with us, enabling them to reach their full potential.
Our high expectations and high standards are combined with a sense of creativity, excellence and enjoyment, firmly underpinned by our belief in the Gospel Values of Jesus Christ at the centre of all that we do.
As our School Mission Statement says
'We aim for excellence, with God at the centre of all we think, do and say'
School life is busy and exciting for the children. The skill and dedication of the staff team ensure that our high standards are embedded across the curriculum, allowing children to fulfil their God given talents through a number of different subject areas. We have a strong focus on pupil wellbeing to build self esteem and confidence so that success can be achieved spiritually, morally and academically.
Children have excellent opportunities to participate in Spanish, French, Music, Dance, Drama, Sports, Gardening and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths). We enrich the curriculum with experience days, visits, workshops and residentials to fully immerse children in our curriculum offer.
As an Outstanding school, we are aspirational for our children and want to ensure we are preparing them, alongside our parents, to be ready for their future milestones. It is our duty to support parents in equipping children with life skills. We do this by hosting career days, STEAM challenges and Shakespeare Fortnight. We also encourage a love of the outdoors through offering The Young Duke of Edinburgh Award and the National Trust's list of '50 Things to do Before You Are 11 and 3/4'.
Learning is a life long journey. At St John XXIII, we are here to offer your children an excellent starting point from which to build their futures. We are here to 'Inspire Faith in our Future'.
We look forward to welcoming you to our school. Please explore our website to find out more about us.
