Vision & Ethos


Our Ethos


  • St John’s is a family – we care for each other’s wellbeing; encourage each other; celebrate and have fun together and help each other along.  We show respect for people, and for the world
  • St John’s is a safe place – where children are valued and taught to appreciate diversity and value each other.
  • St John’s is a hard-working place – children are encouraged to aim high; to achieve the best they can; through innovative, inspirational, and high-quality teaching. 
  • St John’s is a welcoming place – we live, work, and pray in partnership with our families; our local church; and the wider community. 


Our vision


  • We develop unique, confident and happy children, within an exceptional Christian learning community, preparing and empowering them for life in a changing world. 


Our Five year plan


  • Our five year plan was initially produced by governors in consultation with the community and staff in school year 2016-2017. It has been reviewed annually by governors during this time. 

  • In summer 2022 it was further enhanced by governors to provide the leadership team and community with a strong strategic direction for the years 2022 to 2027.

  • Our 5 year plan for 2022 to 2027 recognises the importance of six key strategic priorities:

    • Maintaining our distinctly Christian values, including respect, dignity, friendship and compassion.

    • Continuously improving our teaching and learning with a broad and balanced curriculum.

    • Working with our community and stakeholders.

    • Considering our environment and the global, national and regional issues that will impact the school.

    • Maintaining the financial health of the school with an excellent infrastructure and quality resources.

    • Ensuring positive emotional well-being for all our community.
