Church Life

At St John Fisher we aim to encourage children towards the knowledge and love of God, leading to a desire to pray and we aim to provide opportunities through devotional and liturgical celebrations which lead to the supreme act of worship, ‘The Mass’. Find out more through the following links:


Homework

We have a Homework Policy which was drafted following extensive consultation with parents/carers and we continue to respond to parent/carers comments regarding homework.
