Welcome to St John the Baptist Roman Catholic Primary School, Burnley

Welcome to our website.  We have received further information today (15th June) from Lancashire County Council advising all schools in the county that they now consider it safe for us to reopen.  Therefore St John’s will reopen to Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 on Monday 22nd June as previously arranged for 1st June.  If you told us that you wanted your child to return, we will contact you via phone tomorrow to remind you of the details of start and finishing times etc.  

The government has asked parents and carers to keep their children at home, wherever possible, and asked schools to remain open only for those children who absolutely need to attend.  The fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.  Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.

Families with children in receipt of Free School Meals (FSM) will receive supermarket vouchers.

Please see the link above to ‘Home Learning’ so that your child can access work set by their class teacher.

Thank you very much to our dedicated staff team who are working hard to support your children at this difficult time and thank you very much to you all for your support.

Sincere best wishes, Mrs S Price, Headteacher and Mrs H Bibby, Deputy Headteacher.
