Making our uniform uniform…

As we approach the end of this school year, and start thinking ahead to next session, it is time to outline our current school policy on uniform.

In St John’s RC Academy we ‘Seek the Good’ in ourselves, in others and in every aspect of our lives.

We are proud to be part of our community and we have agreed a uniform which we are proud to wear.  Click here for our updated uniform leaflet (May 2015) for information. Read more

Through the introduction of Curriculum for Excellence (CfE), schools are better able to meet the key challenges facing Scotland today:

  • Equipping children and young people with the skills, experience and attitudes needed in a 21st century economy (a need that was reiterated in the Report of the Commission on Developing Scotland’s Young Workforce, published in June 2014).
  • Ensuring more equitable life outcomes for children and young people.

School Partnership Agreement

For a number of years, young people and teachers from St John’s Academy have been travelling to Bucharest to volunteer in the Marie Curie Hospital.  The hospital has long associations with Tayside through the Mercy Sisters who were based in Dundee until recently, and Sr Aloysius in particular.  Our secondary school chaplain, Fr Colin Golden, has been actively fundraising for this work for many years.
During these visits, we have been building a relationship with the local all through Catholic school called St Joseph’s College (Colegiul Romano-Catolic Sf. Iosif).  Our staff and young people have met together, and there has been some sharing of learning between classes also.  Both St Joseph’s and St John’s are keen to develop this work much further so that we can learn together.
