Head's Welcome

Dear Parents, Children and all Visitors,

May I greet you on behalf of myself, governors and the whole staff to your school.

Here at St. John Bosco Catholic Primary School we welcome the partnership of Parish, Home and School; we work extremely hard to create a community spirit and we very much hope you will choose to become part of it.

We are a highly regarded Catholic primary school. In our most recent Ofsted inspection we were rated as Outstanding. We have high expectations of learning and behaviour for each pupil. We are very proud of our 'outstanding' judgement in our last Diocesan RE Inspection. We place clear emphasis on nurturing children’s wider personal development as well as their academic well-being.

We are an inclusive school and through our curriculum we provide learning opportunities in the form of hands-on experience, visits and visitors to enrich children's understanding and broaden their knowledge. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities to recognise that a child’s talents may not be academic.

We are a very caring community. Our Parents, the PTFA and our Governors are very supportive of the school, each other, and the links we have with St Michael`s and Holy Cross parishes. Collectively we work to ensure the best for our children.

As you have chosen a Catholic school for your child, you will understand the importance our religion holds for us all; it is this ethos which is so much part of this thriving catholic school. We look to our pupils to embrace the traditions of our school and live up to its high expectations.

We must all work very hard to enable our children achieve their full potential in everything they do - in their work, play and spiritual development.

St. John Bosco Catholic Primary School is a happy and lively place where we want everyone to feel at home and comfortable. You have a crucial role in making this happen and I hope you will become fully involved in all we do.

Yours sincerely

Mr Edward Masterson NLE
Headteacher
