Welcome to SS Mary & John’s Catholic Primary Academy, I hope you will enjoy your visit to our website and find it useful. You will find details about our curriculum, school events and the wider opportunities that we provide. Working in partnership with the Acting Head of School, our team of staff and our Governors, we will strive to excel in these areas. We will make sure that our children and their families are at the centre of our provision and that achievements going forward reflect every child’s potential. As a Catholic Academy, proud to be part of the St Francis and St Clare MAC, we recognise our vocational duty to be concerned with the development of the whole person, in the image and likeness of Jesus Christ. Work here is guided by our mission; Striving for excellence as disciples of Jesus, learning from St Mary and St John . We recognise children learn best in a safe, secure and stimulating environment where each person feels valued and respected. We make every effort to forge a partnership with parents and the Parish. If you would like any further information, or want to see us in action, you are welcome to arrange a visit at any time. You can also contact the school directly with any queries you may have. We also welcome your views via the Ofsted Parent View.
