St John The Baptist Church of England Primary School

Loving Learning, Building Community, Growing in Faith



Welcome to St John the Baptist Primary School


Mrs Trudie Colotto


I am delighted to introduce myself as headteacher of St John the Baptist Primary School. Our lovely, friendly school is a Church of England School founded in 1881, located in the Clarendon Park area of Leicester. Although we do not have a fixed catchment area, we aim to provide a primary education within a Christian context which seeks to serve all members of our diverse school community. Currently over 600 children attend, aged between 4 and 11.


As a school we are fully committed to enabling all children to achieve their full potential in all areas of their lives. We believe in the unique, individual worth of every child and that all members of our learning community should be nurtured and allowed to achieve to their full potential. Teachers, parents, governors and friends work together to ensure we are a school that is welcoming, warm and academically and spiritually excellent.


Our curriculum, ethos and wider opportunities allow our children to flourish and gain valuable experiences in a multi-cultural and inclusive world. We help our pupils to embed values and character traits that will help them to succeed throughout their lives.  


We have fun and we work hard and this is shown by our pupils work, happy smiling faces, cheery greetings and welcoming atmosphere throughout our school.


Partnership, respect and community are at the heart of our vision for a school that desires to have at its centre,  the love of God.
