Important update 3rd June 2020


Dear Parents/Carers, 

A further update from Lancashire has come out today. They have said that they will review every Monday if they think it is safe for Lancashire schools to open to wider year groups. 

So far, the thought is that schools will reopen on Monday 15th June, if it is safe and government targets are met. We are now working towards that date to reopen our school to the wider year groups of Year R, 1 and 6.

This still may change and I will have an update for you on Monday the 8th of June. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding in this matter. 

Miss Parker

For our Year 6 Pupils


Today is the day that SATs would have started,
The hall set up and the tables parted,
The rules on the board, the display walls all covered,
Your workbooks away, out of sight in the cupboard,
Instead you are home, you’re doing your bit,
Protecting your families from getting sick,
It’s important right now, we’re in lockdown you see,
Being a part of world history,
You’ve all worked so hard, you should be so proud,
You’ve practised your SPAG and times tables out loud,
You’ve learnt algebra to the Nth degree,
And now the tests, they will no longer be,
Some may be sad that they can’t take the tests,
“Hip hip hooray,” I’ve no doubt said the rest,
Whilst the tests are on hold and you stay home this term,
Remember that tests can’t measure everything you learn,
And I don’t need SATs results to tell me,
How hard you have worked, it’s easy to see,
'Lockdown' Year 6, let me shout it out loud,
You’ve made all your teachers so very proud,
So please continue to learn, fill your brain until full,
And remember, we think you’re all wonderful! '

From Mr Brearley and all the staff.

Here is some of the amazing work that is happening at home.

 "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... :
