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. 

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. 

smileyWe love to learn!smiley

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: Year 6 Bubble Closure

Dear Parents/ Carers

We have been advised by the Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID 19 within the St John’s year 6 bubble.

We have followed the national guidance and have identified that your child has been in close contact with the affected person. In line with the national guidance we recommend that your child should stay at home and self-isolate up to Friday 4th December 2020 which is 14 days since they were last in contact with the confirmed case.

Your child should return to school on Monday 7th December 2020

We are asking you to do this so we can reduce the risk of further spread of COVID-19 to others in the community.

If your child is well enough to return after the 14 day isolation period, they can return to school as normal. A negative test result does not mean they can return to school, even though they have a negative test, they must still remain isolated within the household till the end of their isolation period. 

If your child does begin to experience symptoms, they must immediately report this to the school and test for COVID and notify the results to the school.

We thank you for your continued support and hope to see you soon in December

Yours sincerely


Mr G.F.Elswood.

Executive Headteacher.
