Friday 22nd June
The Patron Saint of our school is St John Fisher. We acknowledge his courage and commitment to his faith. He did not give up his beliefs, even when he faced death. We pray that we may follow St John Fisher's example and always try to be strong in our Faith.
St John Fisher Catholic Primary School
"Pupils value the education the school provides. They enjoy coming to school and engage in their learning readily and enthusiastically. This is because there is a culture of high expectations, support and love of learning that staff and governors have created." Ofsted 2016
A message from our Principal, Ms Carbon
St John Fisher School is a one-form entry Catholic Primary School situated in Sandy Lane West, Littlemore, Oxford.
We care passionately about our children; their education, behaviour and well-being.
I am immensely proud to be part of a team which recognises the importance of a broad and balanced curriculum. As well as being committed to providing the best possible education for all our pupils we also offer high quality sporting and cultural opportunities.
We provide a safe, stimulating and rich environment where pupils and staff are highly motivated and firmly believe in learning together. We respect all pupils, parents and visitors and demand the same in return.
We are very fortunate to be situated in the midst of two Parishes and are supported in our faith journey by Father John (Bl. Dominic Barberi church, Littlemore) and Father Naz (Sacred Heart church, Blackbird Leys) who are regular visitors to school.
We are very proud of all that we do and hope you enjoy our website.
St John Fisher Catholic Primary School is part of the Dominic Barberi Multi Academy Company (DBMAC). click here to learn more about the DB MAC.
During our sharing assembly on Friday 8th June, Year 4 children shared their experiences of their residential week at Woodlands.

On Friday 23rd March, St John Fisher held a poetry slam, with every class performing a poem of their choice. It was an incredibly proud moment for all the families and staff to experience such amazing performances from every class. We have such incredibly talented children in our school. Look in our Gallery for images of the event or click on the links below to watch a video.
In our Friday sharing assembly, on 16th March 2018, we proudly shared some of the exciting science explorations we had all been working on during this week, which is National Science Week. We all had a great time investigating and learn new scientific language and ideas.
Our Harvest Mass, on September 26th, was celebrated by Fr Pius from St Anthony of Padua Church, who kindly stepped in, in place of Fr Naz. Our children respectfully took part in the Mass, singing beautifully and bringing up offerings which they created in class. We were also blessed with a huge amount of donated food, which we will be taking to our local food bank.
June 22nd The Feast of St John Fisher was celebrated with the whole school attending Mass at Blessed Dominic Barberi Church in Littlemore,.
'We invited our families and friends to our Father's Day breakfast...and they came!'
On Thursday 30th March we lit up our school 'blue' in support of World Autism Awareness Week 2017. Thank you for all the cake contributions which alongside a non uniform day raised a fantastic £302.50.
On Friday 24th March, we held our own Mother's Day breakfast club. It was so lovely to see so many Mums join us for a little morning treat, being able to enjoy a breakfast prepared for them by our own special 'Mum,' Mrs Ball.
A beautiful gift, received on the Feast of St John Fisher, from our RE Link Governor and parent, Mrs Carrie Jones.
