God’s will be done through work and play, as we follow Jesus day by day.
St John Rigby is an established, friendly, family-orientated, thriving primary school which offers a Catholic education to pupils aged 4 – 11 within the parishes of the Bedford Deanery.
It is part of the St Francis of Assisi Academies Trust of Bedford Catholic Schools. These include St. Joseph’s and St. Gregory’s Catholic Primary School and St. Thomas More Catholic Secondary School. The schools work in very close partnership in order to provide Catholic education for over 2000 children, aged 2-18, across Bedford.
At the core of the school community are extremely talented and dedicated members of staff who benefit from close working partnerships with supportive, parents and carers. They are united by one common goal which is to ensure that the children are able to achieve the best that is possible in all aspects of their life in school.
Our supportive and encouraging learning environment helps children develop a love of learning that stays with them for life.
As a Christian community our school life is based upon the Gospels and teaching of the Catholic church. Our inspirational children strive to follow the example of our patron saint and live out our Gospel values of Faith, Love, Hope, Trust and Forgiveness in all that they do.
As part of a Trust, all staff are committed in their desire to walk alongside our children as they each set off on their unique learning journey.
The words of St. Paul to Timothy best sum up the key principles that underpin each child’s unique learning journey. These principles are:
Love Service Doing the Best that is Possible.
