Welcome to the website of St John the Baptist Church of England Primary School.

The governors and staff at St.John’s are committed to providing our pupils with the best possible education. It is our aim to challenge, motivate and inspire children in our care through a staff dedicated to developing each child to reach their optimum level of achievement. The school provides a wide range of learning opportunities for the children that help them acquire the necessary skills and attributes to become life long learners.

Our school is a warm and caring community, built on the Christian values of honesty, respect and teamwork. We reflect these values in the day to day running of the school, in all aspects of the curriculum and in every area of our school life. We seek to ensure our children are prepared to be life long learners and that they develop the skills needed to tackle new challenges with resilience and tenacity.

This website is intended to give you an insight into the life and work of the school, the high quality learning opportunities it provides and its policies. The best way to get to know our school is to come to visit – our children would love to show you around and tell you what makes St John’s such a special place to spend their primary years. We look forward to seeing you at one of our Open Day events or at one of our community events soon.
