The School History
The school was built in 1874 as a Sunday School and Day School with an adjacent school house, which was occupied by the Headteacher. There are four classrooms, a hall, a library, a nurture room, a resources room and a kitchen.
The school house has now become an integral part of the school and includes the Headteacher's office, the secretary's office and reception area, the staff room, the meeting room and storerooms.
A fourth classroom was added in 2009.
In 2022, a brand new purpose-built unit was constructed, housing the pre-school and reception class.
As an Aided Church of England school, the Governing Body are the employers and are responsible for the maintenance of the exterior of the building and any improvements to the interior. The school is maintained by Lancashire County Council who are the local education authority.
The school serves the village of Coppull and surrounding areas and caters for children from four to eleven years of age. St. John's playgroup and pre-school meet every morning and some afternoons for children aged between two and four years.
The school offers before and after-school care. Breakfast club is available to all children every morning from 7.45am. After-school club is available to all children from Monday to Thursday from 3.30pm until 5.50pm. There is a fee payable for this service.
The school is fortunate to be surrounded by spacious playing fields and ample playground areas, which are integral to our emphasis on outdoor learning. In addition, there is a beautiful school garden which is available as a quiet space, and of which the children are encouraged to take care through tending and planting.
