School Hours
St John the Baptist Primary is a denominational school located in Uddingston. Everything that we do is underpinned by our school vision, 'Together We Shine'. We strive to create an environment where our young people learn to be successful, hardworking, excellent, nurtured and included. The children, staff and school community consistently model our values of honesty, trust, faith, friendship and respect. 

Our school has 12 classrooms each with an interactive whiteboard, a nursery, two large open areas, a library area, a general purpose room, a large gym hall and separate dining area.  Our playground consists of a generous tarmacadam area, a basketball court, a climbing wall, an outdoor classroom, a trim trail and a large astro turf pitch. 

Our school is a happy, supportive place where your child will have a broad general education which will support them in developing their values and beliefs and enable them to achieve the highest possible levels of literacy and numeracy and at the same time develop skills for learning, life and work.     

Mrs Catherine Currie
Head Teacher

At St John the Baptist Primary we are aware that the education of your child is a most serious responsibility which you have asked us to share.  We aim therefore, to make school a happy, supportive place where your child will have a broad general education which will support them in developing their values and beliefs and enable them to:
  • Achieve the highest possible levels of literacy and numeracy and cognitive skills
  • Develop skills for learning, life and work
  • Develop knowledge and understanding of society, the world and Scotland’s place in it
  • Experience challenge and success so that they can develop well-informed views and act responsibly
  • Adopt an active and healthy lifestyle and be equipped with the skills needed for planning future lives and careers. 

We strive to develop strong parental partnerships and links with the local community in order to support each child to reach their full potential both emotionally and academically and look forward to celebrating the many successes your child will achieve in our school.

Uniform at St John the Baptist School consists of-
  • Dark grey trousers/skirt
  • Pale blue shirt worn with school tie
  • Navy blue jumper, cardigan or tank top 
  • Black shoes
  • School blazer
  • Any outdoor jackets worn in inclement weather should be navy blue/black to blend in with school uniform.
  • Comfortable black indoor shoes should be worn at all times in the school building.
An order form is available at the School Office. The school tie and badge may also be bought at the School Office.

Pupils are encouraged to wear full school uniform at all times and standards of uniform are consistently high. They should however, bring their P.E. kit - gym shoes, blue polo shirt and navy/black shorts - for Physical Education lessons. It is school policy that P1 and P2 pupils can wear polo shirts to school on their P.E. day. P3-7 can wear polo shirts to school if they have P.E. first thing in the morning ie before playtime. They should then change into their shirts and ties for the rest of the school day.

It would be most helpful if parents could mark each article of clothing with the pupil’s name. This makes identification easier when items are mislaid.

Uniforms can be ordered online:

Interval:  10:30 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.

Lunch: 12:30 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.

The school’s Additional Support for Learning Team, which includes the Area Specialist Support Teacher, works collaboratively with the class teacher to identify those children who require additional support and to ensure that their needs are effectively met whether they are very able or are experiencing difficulty in certain aspects of the curriculum. In cases where a child is experiencing learning difficulties the school will make every effort to establish, by various methods of assessment, the source of the child’s difficulty and arrange a suitable programme of work which will cater for the child’s particular needs. On certain occasions it may be necessary, after consultation with the child’s parents, to refer the child to Psychological Services, who will liaise with both the parents and the school, offering advice and support on an appropriate course of action. We acknowledge and support pupils who are very able and make every attempt to provide challenging and varied tasks to encourage pupils to reach their full potential.
