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 are extremely proud of our school and committed to providing the very best possible education for all of our children with high expectations set across the board for achievement and behaviour. 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.
