St John the Baptist Catholic Primary is a mainstream primary school where the staff truly believe that all children have an entitlement to personal, social, intellectual and spiritual development and must be given the opportunity to achieve his/her potential in learning. Each child at St John the Baptist is unique in terms of characteristics, interests, abilities, motivation and learning needs and should be treated equally. Those with exceptional learning needs and/or disabilities should have access to high quality and appropriate education. We do recognise however that some children will require extra support to enable them to do this. We believe for a child to succeed, we need to work closely with parents, to help support them and their child during their time at St John’s.
