 "Where everyone shines with God's love"


At Great Harwood St. Johns CE Primary School it is our mission to:

Build a better place, where:

Everyone is welcome;

No one is ever lonely;

We respect and trust each other;

There is always someone to ask for help;

People help us to be the best we can.


Our School's Christian Values


Thankfulness, Trust,  Perseverance, Justice, Service, Truthfulness, Generosity. Compassion, Courage, Forgiveness, Friendship and Respect. 


These values underpin our whole curriculum and are lived out in everyday school life. We chose one value per half term to study in depth but all are referred throughout the whole school day. 

This half term's value is Forgiveness. 


Despite some difficult weather conditions, staff are committed to the education of our children.

In the case of severe weather conditions requiring a school closure, we will place any updates here on our website and inform you through our local radio station 97.4 Rock FM. 

Holiday List for 2020-2021 is now available, to view go to the parents page, then dates for your diary... :
