Welcome to the St John's Primary School Website

Our website is designed to give you a wide range of information about our school, the team that run it and, most importantly, an overview of the activities and curriculum which our pupils enjoy all year round.  Further information on all aspects of the school’s organisation and ethos are available from the school brochure which you can also download from here.

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.

Years 5 & 6 Juniper Hall Adventure

Despite the wet weather Years 5 and 6 had a great 3 days at Juniper Hall. They studied a variety of different invertebrates (in woodlands and ponds) and the mammal traps were definitely a highlight. We investigated whether wood mice, shrews and voles were nocturnal or diurnal. Everybody was in fine voice singing round the campfire which was a great success and the night walk was lots of fun. All the children were very well behaved and did the school proud.




Furniture For Sale!

Due to the changes to the ICT suite and the library, the school is getting rid of some furniture, such as bookcases from the old library, computer desks, cupboards and metal filing cabinets. Most of these items are located under one of the school shelters. Anybody who is interested can have these items for a donation to the Friends of St John’s. Please see either Mrs Jan Steel (Head teacher) or Mr Del Flaunty (Caretaker) in the school playground.
