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.

Christmas Events

We have had such a busy and exciting last week of term.


Our Infant Nativity ‘The Amazing Christmas Puzzle’. The staff team did a brilliant job to choreograph dance routines and singing and the children were fantastic. We have had such good feedback from the many Parents who came to see the show and from the Grandparents. It will be great when we redevelop the lower hall and are able to consider sound and how we enhance children’s performances.

Class Parties were enjoyed by all year groups on Thursday. Each class had a turn in the hall playing party games and Infants had the opportunity to share party food. Father Christmas visited every class during the afternoon and delivered a class present.


The School Disco took place on Thursday night and, by the look of the exhausted children, there was a lot of dancing going on…fuelled by plenty of sugar from the tuck shop!


Thank you so much to the Friends and all the class reps who have supported these events by serving wine and mince pies, running the tuck shop, coordinating party food lists, organising Christmas hampers, etc. The list is endless and you are such an asset to the school. Thank you so much to Julie, Chair of the Friends, for such enthusiasm and being such a great person to work with.


This term a cheque has been presented to the school for £7,500 from the Friends which will be going towards our lower hall refurbishment programme.

No 8 Autumn Term 2014

Christmas Fayre

A grand total of £3360 was raised at The Christmas Fayre. A huge ‘Thank you’ to all the Friends, helpers and Parents who supported this event.

Well done to 1F!


Carol Concert

The Carol Concert was a lovely start to the festivities and so many of you were able to join us at church and afterwards for mulled wine and mince pies. Again, thank you to the Friends for their help with refreshments which were enjoyed by many.


Hobgoblin Theatre performed their Christmas show ‘Once Upon a Time’ this week for the whole school. This was a gift from the Friends to the children and they thoroughly enjoyed watching the show. Ask them about ‘zipping their lips shut’ ….they will show you and explain where to put the key!
