At St John Fisher, we are part of the Birmingham Diocese, and we are linked to Blessed Dominic Barberi Church, St Birinus and Sacred Heart. The parish priests are Father Ziggy and Father Harry.
We are committed to providing a first-class education where our children will grow to be independent, successful and confident young people who have high aspirations. We offer provision from Reception to Year 6. We aim to ensure that each individual who enters our school is treated with respect and compassion. It is our aim to work in partnership with parents and carers to ensure the best possible start in life for our children.
As well as striving for excellence in academic standards, we believe passionately in educating the ‘whole’ child; by nurturing and developing each individual’s God-given talents. Through our broad and balanced curriculum, we are committed to developing happy, confident and articulate children who embrace a love of learning in this ever-changing world.
Through our RE curriculum and Sacramental preparation we guide children on their journey of faith. Each year group follows lessons planned from the Diocesan programme ‘Learning and Growing as the People of God’. Children take part in collective worship and regular Mission assemblies, as well as celebrating Mass at Church.
In Year 3 children prepare to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation and Holy Communion, and in year 6, children are prepared to take the Sacrament of Confirmation as they become young adults.
Academic excellence for all our children is one of our goals but we also nurture those special God given gifts which make your child unique.
We want our children to leave St John Fisher School as resilient, independent thinkers who are ready to make a positive difference in our world. Our clear aim is to ensure that each individual child our school ready for their next step in their learning journey. We want our children to apply themselves in secondary school and to use their skills and God given talents to be the best they can be.
We know that we can only do this by working in true partnership with parents. Together we can ensure that St John Fisher remains a very special place.
