St John’s is a good school with welcoming children, supportive parents and hard working staff and governors. We all work together to provide the best possible learning opportunities for all the children. We have high expectations of learning and behaviour and seek to develop happy confident children.

Ethos and Values
“Learning Without Limits and Achieving Together”. Read more about our ethos and values HERE.
“Teaching is consistently good. Teachers use information about pupils progress to plan work which challenges them well. Behaviour is good... Pupils care for and are very respectful of one another. Teaching in mathematics and English is good... Pupils are passionate about books and enthused about reading. The school is a happy and lively community.” (Ofsted July 2014)
“At the end of key stage 2, in 2017, pupils’ progress in reading, writing and mathematics was well above the national averages. ” (Ofsted July 2017). Read the latest Ofsted report HERE.
Through curriculum enrichment, including music, drama and sports, we develop active and independent learners equipped for life-long learning.
I am very proud of our academic achievements, facilities and creative, rich curriculum, but most importantly, I am incredibly proud of our children with their positive attitudes towards learning, the way they take responsibility for their own learning and strive to do even better. Visitors always comment on the happy, purposeful environment and the warm welcome they are given by our children and staff. I hope this website gives you a flavour of our exciting and vibrant school.
