The Staff, Governors and Parish of St. John and Martin's extend a warm welcome to our new families. We hope that your association with SS.

Working together we can provide a safe, caring environment in which your child's physical, emotional, social, moral, religious and educational abilities are developed to the full.
Ss. John and Monica's is a Catholic Voluntary Aided mixed school, within the Archdiocese of Birmingham, and in the local authority area of the City of Birmingham.
History of the School
SS. John and Monica Catholic Primary School is a voluntary aided school opened in September l980, following the amalgamation of the St. John's Infant and St. Monica's Junior Schools. The premises occupied at the present time were built in l970. The school serves the Parish of SS. John and Martin and draws its children from the Balsall Heath/Moseley/Edgbaston area.
As a Catholic School, the basic religious ethos is to be found across the whole curriculum and not just within religious education lessons. The aim of the school is to encourage the Christian growth of the child. Parents are encouraged to attend the weekly school masses. Parents are also closely involved in the preparation of their children for the Sacraments of Reconciliation (Penance), First Holy Communion and Confirmation.
SS. John and Monica Catholic Primary School recognises the need for children to be prepared for life in a multi-cultural society by fostering respect for diversity, and by seeking to counter racist and discriminatory attitudes.
