School Ethos

SS. Mary and John’s Catholic Primary School became SS. Mary and John’s Catholic Primary Academy, part of The Bishop Cleary Catholic Multi Academy Company on 1st July 2013.

Our Motto is: ‘Learning with Christ as our Guide’

Our Mission Statement is: ‘SS. Mary and John’s School is a Catholic school of the 21st century. Christ is the centre of all that happens at our school. With Christ as our example and guide we can learn to: Worship, Work, Play, Trust, Respect, Love and Care, As God wants us to.’

This was the first multi academy company of its kind, in the city of Wolverhampton. Whereby five local Catholic schools have come together as Academies within a multi academy company. The board of directors are responsible and accountable for all five academies. Each Academy has its fundamental foundations in the person and teachings of Jesus Christ and His Church.

The Academy’s shared mission within the Bishop Cleary Catholic Multi Academy Company, is to be part of the Church’s mission, to make Christ known to all people, placing Christ and the teaching of the Catholic Church at the centre of people’s lives. By putting Christ and the teaching of the Catholic Church at the centre of the educational enterprise the Academy roots; pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development; the quality of teaching and learning; and the formation of culture and of our society, in Him. *

This educative mission is pursued through the Academy’s interaction with all other Academies in the Communion, the local Church, families, the wider educational community and society at large.
