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

Welcome to our website.

Following the Prime Minister’s announcement on 4th January, I’m sorry to say that school remains closed until further notice.

The children of key/critical workers and identified vulnerable children can continue to attend school, however Government advice is that parents and carers should keep their children at home if they can.  Remote learning can be accessed via the Home Learning section supplemented by daily live teaching sessions.  The Home Learning section also has details of: family support services; emotional health and wellbeing; resources for children with additional needs and PE.

Please may I remind you of our new staggered timings for those in school:

EYFS (C1): 9am-3pm
Yr 1 (C2) and Yr 6 (C7, C8): 8.45am-2.45pm
Yr 2 (C3) and Yr 5 (C6): 8.50am-2.50pm
Yr 3 (C4) and Yr 4 (C5): 8.55am-2.55pm

Please arrive promptly in order to keep year groups separate.  The gates will be closed until 8.45am.  If you have children with different starting times, please wait on our car park as it is safer.  Please wear face coverings.  Thank you very much for your support in keeping our school community as safe as possible.

Sincere best wishes –  Mrs S Price, Headteacher; Mrs H Bibby, Deputy Headteacher and all staff at St John’s.
