Message from the Headteacher

Mrs Karen Cunningham

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website as the new Headteacher of Pope John Catholic Primary School.

I am joining the family of Pope John School having spent the past 2 years as Deputy Head at St. Joseph's in Hanwell and previous to this as Assistant Head at The Good Shepherd Catholic Primary School in Shepherds Bush.  As a mother of 3 young boys I understand the joys and challenges of bringing up children in modern day society.  I am here to support, take and offer advice as to how to give our children the best possible start in life.

The staff here at Pope John have the compassion and dedication to provide a high quality education for your children.  The children here at Pope John are very enthusiastic about their school and are excited by the challenges presented to them in their lessons.  Our Governors have clear levels of challenge and support for the future development of Pope John.

I believe that every child can achieve their full potential when given encouragement and support; it is therefore our job to make this potential a reality.  With an outstanding education all children can use their God given talents to the best of their abilities.

I would like to build upon the strong home, school and parish links to ensure our community grows from strength to strength with all partners working together for the good of our children.  Decisions are made with the good of each child at the centre of all we do.
