|Parish Priest - Father Francis Nonyelu|
St John Fisher RC Primary School is affiliated to the St John Fisher RC Church, Merton. It is part of the Archdiocese of Southwark, in the Deanery of Merton.
Father Francis comes into St John Fisher school regularly to lead mass with the children, and also to spend time chatting with them. The children also attend mass at the church. This is all linked to our whole school plan for Collective Worship.
Father Francis is an active member of St John Fisher and is involved in daily school life. He is also a member of our Spiritual, Ethos and Well-being committee (SEW), supporting St John Fisher as a community and as individuals when needed. Father Francis is also a member of our Governing Body.
As a school, we are delighted to visit St John Fisher RC Church for special services throughout the year and many of the children go to visit at different times through their RE topics, when it is appropriate.
We also do visits to St George's Cathedral with different year groups, depending on their topic and what they are learning about. Our school chaplaincy team (a range of pupils from Year 5 and Year 6) are actively involved in promoting and supporting the spiritual life of the church, through different activities in school.
Our pupils actively work to support our local community through different fund-raising and charity events during the year. Whilst working on their own well-being and learning to reflect and look after themselves and each other, pupils also focus on considering our local community and how we can support them too.
