St John’s RC Primary Burnley


Dear Parents

The community of St John’s RC Primary School attempts to serve as a witness to the Catholic Faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ at all time and in all that we do.

We believe that parents are the first and foremost educators and that we are called to support them in their God given task.

Each child in our school is valued and encouraged to achieve human wholeness in a happy, secure Christian environment.

We will do our best to provide the best possible education for every child.
