Our Vision and Values
I have come that you may have life and have it to the full
At St John’s Catholic Primary School we promise to enrich the lives of our pupils as we encourage and inspire each individual to grow in their faith and love of God.
We are passionate about discovering the unique strengths and talents of our young people whilst helping to shape them into well-rounded and resilient characters through the provision of a creative curriculum and broad enrichment programme.
As part of our uncompromising commitment to the personal and academic excellence of each child, we strive to unlock their full potential and promote a culture of life-long learning both within and beyond the classroom.
The St John’s Mission is about striving to be the best we can be, recognising that we all have different strengths and interests. Our school values reflect the St John’s Mission and are the attitudes, skills and beliefs that we want to instil in our pupils to enable to succeed now and in the future.
