Parents, carers and families are by far the most important influences in a child's life. Parents who take on a supportive role in their child’s learning make a difference in improving achievement and behaviour. Your support can play a vital role at all stages of education.

Parents are the first and ongoing educators of their child and, as such, should receive information and support to help develop their child's learning at home and in the community. At St. John's Primary we value partnership and see it as essential in developing the learning opportunities for you child.

Parent Councils
Parents' Forums and Councils give parents and carers the opportunity to have their views represented to the school and education authority on policy matters and decisions affecting the education of their child.


The PTA supports the school through a variety of activities. They are vital to the school as they provide opportunities to involve the pupils throughout the school year. Recent events have been very successful including the Christmeas Raffle, the Halloween Disco and supporting the school in delivering Christmas treats for the pupils. If you can help the PTA in any way please contact the school and your offer will be passed on to a member of the PTA.
