Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to our school website.

St John Bosco Catholic Primary School is a particularly good school with hardworking, committed and fun loving staff.  We place great importance on the personal skills of all within the school and are fully inclusive and imaginative in our teaching methods.

We use a wide variety of teaching strategies to offer a broad and balanced curriculum, underpinned by state-of-the-art IT facilities and support the teaching of the arts, sports and basic core skills as well as modern foreign languages, citizenship and community values.  Not forgetting an endless number of sports and after school activities.

We offer breakfast facilities and a wide range of after school activities including sport clubs during holiday time based at the school.  We also offer after school clubs in partnership with KID-ZONE, which is proving a most popular support for working parents.

We are delighted to welcome you and your child to our school as prospective members of a community where the Gospel values of the Catholic faith underpin our efforts to provide a quality education for all.

We are proud of our school with its happy and caring atmosphere and its tradition of hard work, academic achievement, sporting success and community involvement.  We look forward to working with you as a family, welcoming and valuing your contribution to the education of your child as well as offering you the very best of our professional skills and expertise along with a high quality of pastoral support and care.

We are a growing family school and it is our aim that you get to know our routines and us quickly. Every member of staff, teaching and non-teaching, is more than happy to help you in any way possible.  Please be confident to ask any of us for help if you have concerns, even if they seem trivial.  No problems are either too big or too small for us to tackle together - please ask.

On behalf of the Governors, staff and myself, I am pleased to welcome you to St John Bosco Catholic Primary School.

Mr D MacAreavy
