St John's Catholic Primary School

To Live in Love


St. John’s Catholic Primary School has many outstanding features, not least the children’s behaviour and their appearance.

We are all proud to be associated with St. John’s and we know how much the children value being part of such a great school!

They all take a pride in wearing the striking blue uniform with its unique school motto, ‘To live in love’.  

Whilst we want to ensure that St. John’s has a uniform to be proud of, we are aware that in the present economic climate, finances

are stretched. For this reason, many of our items can be purchased from local shops e.g. supermarkets such as ASDA .

All clothing & equipment should be marked with your child’s name so as to identify anything that goes missing.
