Aims and Ethos

A St John’s education is about the whole child and our aim as a school is to foster the aptitudes and nurture the growth of each child.

We aim to instil a lifelong love of learning through a rich and broad curriculum.

We encourage children to become independent, creative and critical learners who aim for standards of excellence in all that they do. We encourage them to become their best selves in the fullest sense.

We believe that emotional and social well-being, self-esteem and confidence are inextricably linked with academic progress and we aim to teach children resilience in a fast-changing world.

We believe that respect for children, faith in children and an ability to see the world through their eyes should inform our teaching and our care.

We aim for the children at St John’s to have a generosity of spirit and empathy and to understand the importance of the values of love, kindness, justice, tolerance, respect, honesty, service and trust.

In all that we do, our aim is to work closely with parents, guardians and the children themselves.
