“We dream the same dreams… and we dream them… together.”


A Warm Welcome From The Federation Headteacher

Welcome to our web pages for St John's and St Chrysostom's Church of England Primary Schools, Manchester. We are closed now until 2nd September but my team will be back in September to welcome you all back to school.

Two schools with one Christian vision to provide the very best educational experience to prepare our children to engage with their local communities, for secondary education and discover the self belief of independent learners. The two schools have excellent standards of behaviour, value faith and the development of the whole child.

Since 2017 we have been developing our curriculum to ensure that we have relevant skills and knowledge being taught to our children so that they will be well prepared for life.  We work hard to plan regular parent events to ensure parents and carers are involved in the life of the school. Parents are invited to 'stay and play' each week when their child starts school in reception class. 

Both schools serve a diverse catchment and have a wonderful mix of children and staff from the Greater Manchester area. We have places in classes (including Nursery and reception) for 2020.   If you are a parent and would like to arrange a visit please contact the school office. I look forward to meeting you.

Re: September Return.

Dear Parents/ Carers 

We hope you are all keeping well, staying safe and enjoying the summer holidays. 

All of the summer vouchers for children entitled to free school meals have already been sent to your email addresses. Don't forget to redeem them. 

Before we reopen school in September 2020 will be sending updates via text message and a letter home in regards to our procedure for children to return to school safely. 

In September, children will be taught in small bubbles to ensure safe social distancing in classrooms

Parents and carers should be reassured that each year will not be mixed during break and lunchtime.

We have enhanced our cleaning routines to make sure when children do return to school, it will be in a clean and safe environment. We will have cleaning taking place during the day (not just at the end of the day). 

Thank for your continued understanding; we can't wait to see you all return in September. Have a lovely restful summer break. 

Mr G. Elswood

Executive Headteacher
