Our Aims

The aim of our nursery and school is to support our children to become faith-filled, confident, motivated, kind and life long learners. We want our children to reach their full potential through learning about the world we live in keeping Christ at the centre of all we do. We have one school rule “To Love one another as I have Loved You”.


St John Vianney Nursery aims to give every pupil opportunity to:

  • To ensure that each child feels happy, safe, valued and loved.
  • To provide an exciting, fun and enjoyable educational experience for each child and promote a life-long love of learning
  • To inspire our pupils to aim high, reach for the stars, be the best they can be and make the most of every opportunity that is given to them.
  • To ensure that each child meets their God given potential and is nurtured academically, spiritually, socially and emotionally.
  • To encourage each member of the school community to live their life in accordance with gospel values and to make a positive contribution to British society.
  • To make prayer, worship and liturgy relevant and meaningful for each individual and to provide a learning environment that will enhance the development of faith of everyone in the school community.
  • To work in partnership with parents, the parish, the community and other local schools, in order to provide a wide range of supportive interactions for our pupils.
  • To have lots of fun, make magical memories and share smiles every day


How do we achieve this?

We firmly believe that children learn best when they are engaged and when learning is made relevant and purposeful for them. Play is essential for children’s development and enables children to make links with experiences both indoors and outdoors.

Play enables children to explore, investigate and make sense of the world around them. It also allows thinking to be challenged and the ability to practice and rehearse skills. Children are naturally inquisitive, and we will build on this curiosity in a positive manner.
