Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions parents have to make. These are just a few key points that we think make our school special place to learn and play:
Inclusive ethos where every child is valued
“Pupils flourish both socially and academically”
“Pupils are polite and courteous, and they support each other well.”
Dedicated and professional staff
“Teachers plan exciting lessons that engage and motivate pupils well.”
“Teachers have good expectations of the more able and challenge them well.”
“Teachers manage pupils’ behavior highly effectively”
Broad and balanced curriculum
“Pupils enjoy school because there is a broad and balanced curriculum that is enriched well by visits and clubs, as well as good links with other local schools. The curriculum is successful in promoting pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.”
- Up-to-date Computing facilities
- Interactive whiteboards in every classroom
- Small teaching groups for English and Maths
- Spacious playground, quiet areas and large sports field
- Thriving PTA, promoting social events and fundraising activities

Learning at St John’s
The whole learning process is aimed at developing children as individuals able to lead successful and satisfying lives both during and after their school days. A mixture of whole class, small group and individual teaching styles is employed which are appropriate to the ages and abilities of the children, and which reflect the nature and content of the curriculum.
Our style of education promotes traditional and established methods, with a firm foundation of the basic skills of literacy and numeracy. We aim to encourage a love of learning thus making every day a rewarding experience for child and teacher.
We provide an environment, within the school and the larger community, where clear
expectations are set and children develop self-respect and respect for others, and where staff respond sensitively to the needs of each child.
“This is a school that it is not resting on its laurels. The headteacher and other senior leaders are passionate about getting the best for their pupils and they embrace with enthusiasm new initiatives ..”
