St John Fisher is an aspirational learning community with a strong vision, shared values and a proud Catholic ethos.

Our expectations are high and we are ambitious for every child. We work hard to ensure that each can feel happy, safe and loved in school and at home and we aim to inspire them to enjoy and achieve every day.


We believe that every child is talented and unique and should be affirmed and supported to appreciate their own uniqueness, gifts and talents. Our school is one where children are known and understood.

St John Fisher is a place where everyone is treated with respect, tolerance and understanding. We aim to be inclusive; a place where good manners and behaviour are valued enormously and every child can experience success, whilst developing the skills and attitudes necessary to be happy and successful life-long learners.

We all recognise parents and carers as our children’s first educators and so invite them to be our partners. We encourage them to engage with school life and we share lots of information so that they are well-informed.

I am immensely proud of our young people and of how we continue to grow and develop as a community.

If you would like to find out more, please contact us to arrange a visit. Our newsletters and Curriculum Overviews are full of information and also chart our journey. They will give you a sense of what we are about.

Thank you for visiting our website.

SJF Safeguarding

St John Fisher Primary - A Catholic Voluntary Academy, is an Operation Encompass school.

Operation Encompass is a notification schools receive when a child is exposed to (or involved in) any domestic incident. Specially trained members of our SJF Safeguarding Team are informed so that we can respond appropriately to support the safety and wellbeing of any children and family members affected. 

Our Safeguarding Team is: 

Designated Safeguarding Lead

  • Mr F Barratt 

Designated Safeguarding Deputies

  • Mrs M Barrett
  • Mrs I Hadfield 
  • Mr C Murphy 
  • Mrs V Barratt (Early Years - training pending) 

To find out more please click on this LINK.


Our 'Whisper Button' provides an additional way for concerns to be reported by children, families and others. 

Whisper® is a reporting service that enables our SJF Safeguarding Team to receive disclosures via a simple form or text message.
