Positive Care Inspectorate report for St John’s Academy Nursery

Our Nursery was visited by the Care Inspectorate on 5th February 2016.  The Inspection Report has now been published and highlights a number of areas of very good and excellent practice.

It was identified that the Nursery makes excellent use of the environment both within the nursery and around the rest of the school providing opportunities for stimulating play using areas such as the gym, drama studio, sensory room, noisy quiet, wee room, outdoor classroom and library. They also highlighted that staff are experienced, skilled, enthusiastic and motivated and ensure that our children are provided with a variety of experiences which interest and challenge them.

Catholic Education Week 2016

To help us celebrate Catholic Education Week, many of our Primary 1 and Primary 5 children joined the parish of St John the Baptist, Perth on Sunday, 7 February.  The children and parents were involved in reading, presenting the offerings and leading us all in the final hymn.

Headteacher, Seán Hagney, reflected on this year’s theme ‘Learning to be Merciful’ at the 11.00am mass, with teachers from St John’s RC Academy and associated primaries reading this reflection at other services in Perth and Kinross.  As a number of parishioners have asked for a copy, this year’s letter can be found here.  Thanks for your positive feedback.
