St John’s is a nurturing and dynamic community, rooted in Christian values, where children are encouraged to be the best they can be.
Our vision is:
At the heart of our school vision is a desire for an authentic and life-giving relationship with one another and with God. We believe that it is through Christ who gives us the strength, all can achieve within a learning environment where every child is valued as a unique individual created in the image of God, and where teaching and learning is of a consistently high standard.
We could summarise our vision with the phrase: “Every Child, Every Opportunity, Every Day.”
We aim to provide the foundation on which children can grow, enabling them to move on to the next stage of their lives, confident that, in the words of St. Paul:
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” Philippians 4:13
The following values are our guiding principles:
We will do everything we can to help every child understand the importance of these values through the way we behave towards them and each other. Each child’s educational, emotional and spiritual welfare is vitally important and we commit to doing our very best for every child.
