St John with St Michael Church of England Primary School is set in the picturesque area of Shawforth in the Rossendale Valley. It includes an Early Years Foundation Stage Unit for children from 3 years old. At present there are 133 pupils on the school roll aged from 3 years old to 11 years old.
Our most recent OFSTED inspection in March 2017 states that the school continues to be 'good'. We were delighted that they recognised that rigorous leadership puts pupils at the heart of all we do'. Our SIAMS inspection held on 19th March 2014 was also very positive with an overall grading as Good but graded us outstanding in 'The impact of collective worship on the school community' and 'The school, through its distinctive Christian character, is outstanding at meeting the needs of all learners'.
The School manages a Breakfast Club from 7.45am - 9.00am at the cost of £2.00 per session payable in advance or on the day, and also has an Extended After School service 3.30pm - 4.30pm for only £2.00 per child or there is a full After School Provision from 3.30pm - 5.30pm which includes a light snack and a drink at the cost of £5.00 per child.
The School is greatly involved with the wider community, has a very active Eco-School Council and School Council.
