Faith in Action
Welcome to St. John the Baptist RC Primary School
Our wonderful Catholic school is a community of love and hope. It provides children with a Catholic education, which perceives life as a faith journey. The ultimate aim of our school is to develop the full potential of all children, leading to their life-long activities being guided by the Spirit and presence of Jesus, in His service, to serve others. We are his mind, voice and actions in earth.
A Catholic education is distinctive in placing all learning and teaching in a Catholic moral context and in both challenging and supporting children to develop in mind, body and spirit. We aim to guide everyone in the school community to discover the true value and dignity of each and every human being who, loved by God, has a mission on earth and a destiny which is eternal.
St John the Baptist RC Primary serves a diverse community, and we are dedicated to the education of the whole child, supporting their families and the parish . The St John the Baptist way of working communictaes a unique, clear vision of God, people and life, centred on Gospel values and reflective of the teaching of the Catholic Church.
We are supported in our mission by the active partnership of the home, the school and the parish. Together, they provide support for our faith communities, helping to form and develop in all a mature Christian conscience, and in addressing the increasingly secular influences of popular culture.
As an integral part of our Catholic ethos, all pupils are made aware, throughout the school year, of the changes and celebrations relating to the Church's Liturgical Year. These events are highlighted in our school hall, around the school in prayer areas and in every classroom. The children are aware of the liturgical changes with the changing colours of our cloths and displays.
