WELCOME to St. John’s RC, Portobello

We are delighted to welcome you to the St John’s community and we look forward to a long and happy association with you.

St John’s is a Catholic School and we aim to create an atmosphere which encompasses all the values of a Catholic School.

Our approach to Religious Education is based on a Curriculum for Excellence:  RELIGIOUS EDUCATION in ROMAN CATHOLIC SCHOOLS. Working closely with parents and local parish communities we aim to provide a caring, secure and fulfilling environment for the development of the whole child.

While the ethos of St John’s derives from the principles and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, we welcome children of all denominations and beliefs. It is hoped that all pupils will follow the schools Religious Education programme “This is Our Faith” which has been developed in light of our new Curriculum for Excellence.

We hope that this website provides current, relevant information for all parents and carers.

One of our main priorities at St John’s is to develop a close partnership between home and school and it is important that we all work together in partnership.
