Our Class Vision

We are St John’s family, not related but joined by love and kindness.

We are all different, one of a kind but valued equally.

We look like God and he wants us to be the best we can be.

Our Values will help us all of our lives.

Our vision is one that that centres on the people that our staff, children and local community can become. It is a community based vision, created with and shared by St John’s Church. Having a shared vision creates a sense of community and belonging. 

Our vision creates a Godly view of self-worth encouraging all children to have a sense of uniqueness and equality. It provides people with the message God cares about the people we are becoming, not just who we are now.

In relation to the Instrument of Governance, our school vision will preserve and develop its religious character in partnership the church. This is inline with our historical foundation as a church school. The vision explains how we, at St John’s, aim to provide an education with the highest quality which will allow children to achieve their full potential, whilst promoting the meaning and signifance of faith and the Christian Values.

Over the years, our local community has become more diverse. Our vision was shaped in line with that to teach children equality and respect and to love all just as God did.

We created our vision statement based on the theological roots from Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law”. Our community belief that everyone is equal yet unique and diverse. The first of our school values is love and we believe this overarches all the other values and the school bible verse, ‘Just as I have loved you, you should love each other’ emphasises this.  

Our School Values

At St John’s we endeavour to promote a variety of beliefs and cultures, all underpinned through our Christian ethos, which reflects the diverse nature of British society. Our curriculum is enriched through visits celebrating British values such as the trip to the National Arboretum at Alrewas, and celebrating our Queen becoming the country’s longest reigning monarch and a thoughtful and reflective remembrance service – all which have also supported the learning in the classroom.

We have a democratic process by annually electing school council representatives, who in time have a pupil voice on issues such as healthy eating/living, extracurricular provision and any subject they feel important.
