Starting reception in September 2021


Headteacher's Welcome


I have great pleasure in offering you the warmest of welcomes to St. John's as you and your child begin a  journey at our school that starts now and will finish in July 2028. I hope that this special September 2021 starters' page is able to give you an insight into our school and help you begin to see the exciting time that your child will have at St. John's.


Your child will join St. John's at an exciting time. In 2020 we opened our brand new purpose built reception classrooms. This three classroom block has its own playground and outdoor learning areas for the children to use. You can see in the pictures on this page that the children love their new classrooms. They were designed and built with reception children in mind to make sure that our reception teachers and teaching assistants can give your child the best possible start to school life.


Please keep coming back to this page as we will continue to update it over the autumn term with the latest September 2021 starter information. 


All the staff at St. John's look forward to meeting you as soon as possible.
