School policies cover every aspect of school life. Below are some of our most important policies for your reference. If you want to know our policy on something that is not listed, please ask the school office.
There are also pages for any specific paperwork or information that we give out in any school year. These sections contain paperwork and documents that we may send out during a year that aren't letters. You'll find such letters in the letter section.

Volunteer and Visitor handbook
We are very lucky to have lots of visitors and volunteers come and support us at St. John's. This booklet is designed to help our visitors and volunteers have a safe and happy time at school.
Text Messages from School and Online Payments to School
Please complete this form and return to the school office if you would like to be able to receive text messages from school, for example informing you of cancelled clubs/events, school closures and payment reminders. We also offer online payment as an alternative to sending cash into school for dinner money and some trips/activities.
Parental permission form
Below is our 'Parental Permission' form. Parents are asked to complete this when their child starts school in reception and then again at the start of juniors in year three. However, should circumstances change at any time, parents are invited to return one to school with any new information that you want us to be aware of.
Leave of absence for when children need time off school
Below you will find our Exceptional Leave request form. This needs to be completed and returned to school if you wish to take your child out of school for any reason other than doctor or medical appointments and child illness.
More information about leave of absence and children not attending school can be found in the Attendance section of this site. CLICK HERE.
