Welcome to St John's Catholic Primary School


My name is Angela Aspinwall-Livesey and I have the real privilege to be Executive Headteacher of St. John’s Catholic Primary School. Visitors to St. John’s comment on the warm welcome they receive and the friendly atmosphere that exists. I believe this is because:

►  Our children are stunning! Wonderful children to be proud of, who show respect for each other and take a pride in both themselves and their environment.

 ► Our staff are fantastic! Adults who value our children and their families, who work hard to provide rich and fulfilling experiences which enable our children to be happy, confident and successful. 

At St. John’s we have the highest of expectations of ourselves and of what our children can achieve. We strive to inspire, enthuse and motivate all children to develop a lifelong love of learning. We value each child as an individual and provide opportunities through our creative curriculum and our out of hours study support for all children to excel in areas where they have a special talent whether this is in sport, drama, art, music or through involvement in our pupil councils.

St. John’s has an excellent reputation both locally and Lancashire wide and we are extremely proud of our achievements. Our most recent Ofsted (2017) states we are a ‘good’ school with many ‘outstanding features’ and our Section 48 Religious Education Inspection (2012) states ‘we are an outstanding Catholic school’. 

At St. John’s working and playing hard, interspersed with much fun and laughter is our recipe for a happy and successful school. I do hope that you will find the time to check out our website to see what we get up to on a daily basis.

If you would like to contact me, or would like to arrange a visit please do so through the school office 01695721323 or by email head@st-johnsrc.lancs.sch.uk. I look forward to welcoming you to our wonderful school.

Exciting Announcement!

This week we launched a brand new initiative called, 'Achievements to Treasure Before Leaving St. John's.' In essence it is a list of activities that we feel are important for a child to experience during their primary school years.

The curriculum council have worked closely with Miss Derome for over a year now to make sure that all the activities are right for our children, adequately challenging but more importantly activities that will provide an exciting experience covering a full range of interests and hobbies.

The activities that the children have designed have been made into a treasure trail and every year group has its own set of challenges to achieve and treasure, illustrated beautifully on classroom posters. Examples include 'Learn a new language', 'Go stargazing' and ' Hold a scary beast'.

We are all extremely excited about this innovative project, which is a completely unique design, something you won’t see in other schools, but which we believe enhances our fantastic curriculum, enriching the lives of the children at St. John's.
