Welcome from the Headteacher, Mrs Jan Steel

On behalf of the Governors, the staff and the pupils I am delighted to welcome you to the St John's Primary School website.

We offer a creative, inspiring and motivating curriculum which excites and enthuses learners, in conjunction with a wide range of extra-curricular and after-school opportunities that complement our work in the classroom.

Mollie's Story

Meet Mollie, aged 7, a Key Stage 2 pupil from our school who has really struggled with literacy for a couple of years, resulting in a lack of all-round confidence and anxiety about going to school.

Mollie's story shows how LEGO® Education StoryStarter helped to make a real difference both to her literacy learning and her enjoyment of school. We're proud of Mollie and her fantastic story.

Well, what a fantastic evening!

Everybody was in extremely good spirits, very enthusiastic and absolutely bonkers – some more than others! Thank you to everybody who came along, and especially to the Quiz Masters who set up some dastardly questions for us all to answer and to Mr Dyer who gave a truly unforgettable, but brilliant, rendition of several songs, that we all should have known!!

Also many thanks to the parents who stayed behind to help clear up the hall.

Your assistance was greatly appreciated.
