Welcome!

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 every child is known and understood.

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

We recognise parents as our children’s first educators and we invite them to be our partners. We encourage them to engage with school life and 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. You can also read our newsletters and Curriculum Overviews which chart our journey and will give you a sense of what we are about.

Thank you for visiting our website.

Frank Barratt

Headteacher

We are an Operation Encompass school!

Operation Encompass is the notification schools receive when a child (under 18) has been exposed to, or involved with any domestic incident. This will usually be done by the start of the next school day.

Operation Encompass will inform specially trained members of our Safeguarding Team so that we can respond appropriately to support the safety and wellbeing of any children and family members affected. 

At St John Fisher, the Safeguarding Team is: 

Designated Safeguarding Lead

  • Mr Barratt

Designated Safeguarding Deputies

  • Mrs Barrett
  • Mrs Hadfield 
  • Mr Smith

Thank you.
