St. John’s C of E Primary Academy admits pupils from age 5 to 11 years. We ensure that within the Anglican tradition we uphold the principle of being inclusive and in promoting cohesion in our academy and across our local community. We currently have 202 pupils on roll across 7 years groups.

We not only serve pupils from Wednesbury but also surrounding areas such as Walsall, Tipton and other areas within Sandwell.

The academy is situated in the town of Wednesbury and is an oasis for our pupils. The original building was a Victorian build located near the Church of St. John’s/ However, both the church and the school were closed, and a new school built in the 1970s.

The vision at St. John’s is that we are an inclusive and loving family who celebrate our similarities and differences. Together we face new challenges with endurance whilst generously supporting each other along the way. When things go wrong, we forgive others as well as asking for forgiveness ourselves. We are the generation of today, empowered by our personal faith and beliefs. All children and staff are valued and encouraged to fulfil their potential in all aspects of academy life.

The school motto of ‘Together we ‘Believe to Achieve’ knowing that “Everything is possible for one who believes”. Mark 9:23. exemplifies what we expect of pupils and adults and in conjunction with our academy values is the driver for our reward system. Our values are central to academy life:

G - Generosity
E - Endurance
T - Tolerance
F - Forgiveness
A - Ambition
B – Belief

We have links with our local Church; St. Bartholomew’s and have been to worship there several times.

St. John’s C of E Primary Academy’s curriculum is broad and balanced and is underpinned by its unique curriculum drivers: Knowledge of the World, Enterprise and Environment. It raises children’s aspirations demonstrating possibilities for their future lives, fostering independence and resilience. High expectations in speech, language and communication strengthen children’s ability to learn at a deeper level, allowing them to articulate their learning, demonstrating quality thinking and application of skills and knowledge. We provide pupils with rich learning experiences, a full range of educational visits are encouraged in all a year groups including residentials for every year group, extra-curricular activities and enrichment opportunities.
In September 2017 Ofsted graded the school as ‘Good’ and following this an outstanding SIAMs was awarded.

The school is well resourced and with capital works programme has been well maintained. The school also has excellent outdoor facilities for all pupils including a field with a gym, a quieter reflection area, a story circle and a sensory garden.
