MESSAGE FROM HEAD TEACHER, MR R. HUNTER
The purpose of this website is to keep parents, pupils and visitors well informed about the school’s policies, activities and events as well as providing essential information regarding teaching and learning.
At St John’s we know that all parents have great hopes and aspirations for their children and our aim is to ensure that each pupil receives the best possible education in a happy, secure and intellectually stimulating environment.
Our vision and values are rooted in Christian values- faith, hope, care, responsibility and respect- we promote acceptance for all, love, forgiveness and excellent behaviour for learning. We want our children to be the very best they can be!
At St John’s we are understanding, respectful and, with a positive attitude towards life, we aspire to achieve here and beyond. In order for this to be achieved, it is essential that every member of the school community acknowledges and reflects the values promoted by the school.
We are extremely proud of the polite, thoughtful and enthusiastic children that come to St John’s and we always aim to provide very clear expectations of good behaviour and respect for all that underpin effective learning. We believe that the environment and education that St John’s provides for its pupils will help them to ensure that they achieve their best possible at school and beyond.
We warmly welcome visitors to our wonderful school and hope that you find your visit to our website useful and informative.
Comments from Ofsted
‘Pupils feel very safe in school because they are so very well looked after. They talk very knowledgeably about the need for regular exercise and a healthy diet, and, in the main, they practise what they preach.’
