About St John's Church of England Primary School
Welcome from Ms Martina Parsons, Headteacher
Thank you for your interest in our lovely school; I am very proud to be the Headteacher of this aspirational, supportive Church school where we strive to support and develop our learners through our main drivers of respect, empathy, hope, trust and wonder.
Choosing the right school for your child is hugely important, which is why we have a particular emphasis on working in partnership with our parents. We therefore operate an open door policy and welcome your thoughts and support for the duration of your child's school journey (and beyond.)
St John's has confidence in and aspiration for every child. We set high social and academic targets and work steadily towards them. We employ a child-centered, nurturing approach in order to support the development journey for our children.
We work together to ensure we all live our lives to the fullest, following our Christian narrative.
'I came that they may have life and have it abundantly..' John 10.10b.
At all times, we strive to be the very best we can be, and this is realised through the best efforts of our pupils, parents, staff, PTFA and Governors.
We all work hard, knowing that together we will flourish.
I feel fortunate to be at the centre of such a supportive and hard-working community and I warmly welcome you to our wonderful school family.
Ms M Parsons
