Headteacher’s Welcome


Here at Crosscanonby St John’s Church of England Primary School, we welcome all children and families. The children at our school are happy, confident, fun loving and energetic. They are passionate about their learning, whether in the classroom or out of doors; our experienced staff provide a carefully planned and broad and balanced curriculum and all children are supported so that they can all access this fully.  

We teach our children to always try to be the best we can be. We are a school that is big enough to present all of the opportunities your child will need but also small enough to care for everybody’s individual needs. Our children are at the heart of our school and our small class sizes mean that we can really get the best from the children. 

We are proud of our links with St John’s Church in Crosscanonby and value the links we have with the local community. 

At Crosscanonby St John’s CE Primary each member of staff has a love of teaching. They develop and inspire the children to enable them to reach their full academic potential. It is our goal to teach them in a way in which they are fully engaged and excited by their education, not just some times but all of the time.

Crosscanonby & Crosby is a very caring community. We embrace our lovely village and our families but also feel part of our larger education group (ASSP- Aspatria Small Schools Partnership). We are a small village school which allows us to really get to know each and every one of our children. In turn, they feel a strong sense of belonging.

Please feel free to call in and visit us. You will be able to see our school in action, see the children settled, happy and working hard in our beautiful surroundings.

You are most welcome.
