What Makes St John's Special?
We are very proud of our pupils and see them mature socially, emotionally and spiritually as they move through school. We work hard to develop the whole child and seek to promote individual strengths. Children are given responsibilities: from monitor jobs in the early years, to being part of the school council and in later years applying for safety patrol positions.
School life is based around Christian values. These values are interwoven into everything that we do from assemblies and lessons to conversations with pupils. They are not an add on but an integral part of school life at St John’s. Each half term the whole school focuses on a different value that is supported by our PSHE curriculum.
Our values are celebrated in school, children and adults who notice pupils displaying the values can nominate individuals to be photographed for our values board.
As children move through St John’s the values begin to underpin their social and moral development, helping them to make the right choices when they face challenges. Our pupils demonstrate a strong sense of right and wrong. By the time they leave us in Year 6 they are socially and emotionally prepared for their move to secondary school.
