Mission Statement

Children are always put at the heart of all we do at St John's. We warmly welcome families of all faiths and none to our vibrant and caring school. In order to support children in becoming the best versions of themselves and guided by: 1 Timothy 1:7 “For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, love and self-discipline.” our school’s vision is summarised by our mission statement:

  ‘working together in friendship and faith, learning for life’

This is secured by our Christian ethos, for 'I can do everything through Him who gives me strength' Philippians 4:13, our enduring faith in one another and permeates every aspect of school life. It is enacted through our five cornerstone Christian values, which are;

Love - Colossians 3:14 “Above all, be loving. This ties everything together perfectly.” 

Honesty - 1 John 3:18 “Let us not love with words, but with actions and in truth.”

Faithfulness – Matthew 17:20 “Faith can move mountains.”

Kindness - Proverbs 3:3 “Do not let kindness and truth leave you; write them on the tablet of your heart”

Forgiveness – Luke 6:37 “Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”

These values are the practical cornerstones of our vision and are underpinned by the work of all who are part of our school family.
