Welcome To St John Vianney

A Catholic day school for pupils with autism, learning difficulties and complex needs.

St. John Vianney Roman Catholic School in Firswood is Salford Dioceses’ Special Needs Provision. Both Mr. McLoughlin and I are incredibly proud and honoured to be the present Acting, Head Teachers.

We benefit enormously from leading a hard-working, highly skilled and professional staff whose primary concern is to prepare our wonderful pupils and young adults to become independent learners.

We are an Ofsted graded good school, (Ofsted Inspection September 2017).

Everybody at our school is valued .Whether pupil, teacher, TA, Site supervisor, Admin, Cooks or parents all are respected. All stakeholders are intrinsically invaluable to our pupils’ succeeding. Whatever the needs of our pupils and whatever special interests they have, we aim to ensure that our pupils thrive, feel safe, have fun and enjoy success no matter how small.

We work in partnership......
