Headteacher's Welcome


Welcome to our website, designed to keep our parents, families, parish and our wider community members in touch with all the wonderful things happening in our school. We also have a fantastic website with class Twitter feeds which is kept up-to-date daily with activities both in and out of school, children’s work and awards received.

St John Vianney’s is a larger than average Catholic primary school in the heart of Blackpool, which our children, staff, parish and governors are really proud of. The school was identified as ‘Outstanding’ in our most recent Diocesan inspection and Good with Outstanding Behaviour and Safety in our latest Ofsted inspection (July 2014).

As a Catholic school, the teachings of Jesus Christ are central to all that we practise in school. Our mission statement, ‘Seeking Growth Together’, recognises that education is a partnership between the child, school and home, and we place a great deal of emphasis on this partnership. Parents are welcome to come into school anytime to experience the friendly atmosphere and ethos we try so hard to nurture at St John Vianney’s. We have a Parent Focus Group which which meets on the last working Wednesday of the month. For more information, please go to Parents - LPPA on the website.  If you would like to become even more involved in the school, please feel free to join either of these groups.
