SS John and Monica RC Primary School is a successful, oversubscribed, richly diverse school 2 miles from the city centre of Birmingham. We are friendly, hardworking and committed to raising pupil achievement through the Every Child Matters agenda.

About Us

SS. John and Monica R.C. Primary School is a voluntary aided school opened in September l980, following the amalgamation of the St. John's Infant and St. Monica's Junior Schools. The premises occupied at the present time were built in l970. The school serves the Parish of SS. John and Martin and draws its children from the Balsall Heath/Moseley/Edgbaston area.

As a Roman Catholic School, the basic religious ethos is to be found across the whole curriculum and not just within religious education lessons. The aim of the school is to encourage the Christian growth of the child.

Aims and Values

  • To enable children to acquire the basic skills of literacy, oracy and numeracy.
  • To enlarge a child's knowledge, experience and imaginative understanding and thus enhance his/her awareness of moral values and capacity for enjoyment.

  • To help children to appreciate human achievements in art, music, science, technology and literature.
  • To deliver a high standard of education to all pupils guided by the school Mission Statement and in line with Local Authority and National Curriculum statements.

Our School is part of the Birmingham Catholic Primary Partnership (BCPP)

The Birmingham Catholic Primary Partnership (BCPP) was established in 1995

Its core purpose is to 'promote curriculum and professional development, thereby enhancing the quality of teaching and learning in all Catholic primary schools in Birmingham and to work together in true partnership, thereby sharing expertise, so as to enrich the education of all the children in the Partnership schools, in an atmosphere of Christian love, which will benefit Catholic Education in the city'.

We now have eighty schools that are full members of the BCPP. Vacancies at our schools can be found here
