About St John's Church of England Primary School

We are a small school with big expectations for our pupils.

At St John’s Church of England Primary School, we provide a happy, caring and stimulating learning environment where the focus of everything we do is the children. We value and respect families from all faith or non-faith backgrounds and enjoy building relationships to ensure that all children achieve the very best they can be during their time at the school.

Our aim is to serve our community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. We encourage an understanding of the meaning of faith and promote Christian values through the experiences we offer to all our pupils.

We believe that in order for children to do well and make great progress they need to feel safe and happy at school. We place a premium on ensuring that children are cared for and supported if necessary so that they can look forward to coming to school, make friends and enjoy their learning.

We encourage everyone at school to live out our school values. We believe this helps us to be the best we can be, help each other to feel valued and encouraged and recognise where we need to learn from our mistakes in a safe and caring way.

Our school values are:

Respect: We are fair and value each other’s ideas and opinions.
Friendship: We are kind and encourage one another.
Truthfulness: We tell the truth and own up to mistakes.
Compassion: We look after each other and share.
Courage: We try new things and do our best.
Forgiveness: We give people a chance to start again.

St John’s teaches a broad and creative curriculum that engages children so they look forward to lessons, enjoy their learning, make good progress and have fun.
We have high expectations for achievement in reading, writing and maths and strongly believe that memorable learning happens when lessons are practical and engaging.

Opportunities to take part in sporting events and competitions, performing a Shakespeare play on a professional stage, learning to sail, conducting exciting science investigations, playing a musical instrument, designing, creating and using technology are some of the ways we ensure that children gain a wealth of experience during their time with us. A broad range of extra-curricular clubs are also offered.

Our curriculum offers many opportunities for educational visits to enhance learning, including residential trips for our older children.

We promote the spiritual, moral, cultural and social development of all our pupils. Therefore, children become confident and comfortable in sharing their views on matters of faith and beliefs and listen with respect to the opinions of others.
