October is the month of the Rosary. We pray the rosary silently or out loud, in public or in private, alone or with others. It is a universal prayer.
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.
10.10.18 Sapphires class are both very proud and excited to have received an email from the author Kes Gray. In Literacy, we have been working on the story 'Super Daisy' which the children have thoroughly enjoyed. As an end to the unit of learning, the children wrote letters to either Kes the author, or Nick Sharratt the illustrator. Following this, we sent some of the letters to Kes to show how inspired we had been by his book.
Please call in to see the letters and his response.
This Week, in Friday's sharing assembly. Children in Year 5 shared their Canticles after listening to St Francis' Canticles of Creation. Below are some examples.
Fr Naz celebrated our Harvest Mass for 2018 on Tuesday 25th September. It was a beautiful prayerful time. Our school community showed how caring they are with all the donations of food brought in, which we will be taking to our local food bank. Each class also created something special for the offertory. We had bread, soup, artwork and harvest prayer wreaths, showing the children's understanding of the meaning of Harvest.
On Tuesday 11th September, KS2 took part in the Adoremus which was streamed live from Archbishop Bernard's chapel. The children joined in with the singing and the divine praises.
It was a beautifully calm and respectful and reflective time for us all to experience.
Today, 7.9.18, we all took part in our first sharing assembly of the new school year. Children from each class proudly shared their work and achievements with the rest of the school and their parents. The first Rainbow awards and out of school achievements were also celebrated.
