Canon Johnson C of E Primary School

Welcome to Canon Johnson C of E Primary School.

Our school is a one-form entry Church of England academy on the outskirts of Ashton-under-Lyne.  Our everyday life is based on Christian values making us a welcoming, caring and considerate community for all children and their families. We pride ourselves on the positive comments made by visitors on how welcome we make them feel.

We encourage the celebration of achievements, big and small, to motivate and inspire young minds.

At our school we believe that education is a partnership between school, parents and the community. We work hard to make sure that this partnership is a close one, for the benefit of all our children.

Our overall aim is encapsulated in our school vision statement of:

Our Christian school family aim to immerse every child in a diverse, thought provoking, memorable curriculum which places all children at the heart of discovering their true potential allowing them to become aspirational, valued contributors within an ever changing world.

And our school values:







In January 2019 we converted to become an academy as part of the Forward As One Trust. This has enabled us to continue to deliver our key values with the support and collaboration of a small network of schools with the same ethos of providing an excellent education in a caring and nurturing environment as part of one family.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our family.

Head Teacher: Mr Mark Bidgood
Assistant Headteachers: Mrs Karen Myers and Mrs Clare Fairclough
