Catholic Life of St John's
‘St John’s is an outstanding Catholic School, where the dedication and drive of the headteacher, staff and governors leads to continuous improvement and excellent outcomes for all pupils.’
‘There is a calm and welcoming atmosphere and the pupils demonstrate this in interactions with each other, staff and visitors; consequently, their behaviour is outstanding. The pupils live out their one school rule of ‘Love One Another’ and this is evident with all groups of pupils.’
‘The whole school community has a strong sense of belonging to the Catholic faith. The staff work very effectively to ensure that Christ is at the centre of all they do.’
‘Teaching is outstanding and is effective in enthusing pupils and ensuring that they learn extremely well.’
‘The school deploys support staff very effectively and they regularly take part in the teaching of lessons. They make a significant contribution to the learning and progress of these pupils.’
‘Standards of attainment in RE are excellent… all pupils… make excellent progress’
‘Parents appreciate the work of the school, as shown in the parents’ questionnaires… They state that their children are happy in school and they are happy with the provision of RE in the school.’
As a Catholic School we are deeply committed to developing and enhancing the talents and potential of each child by providing an ethos that reflects the Gospel values and enables each one to grow in faith.
We understand that all children have their own unique relationship with God, for some this has been nurtured and developed within the home, whilst others receive their first awareness of the Church community at school.
For all our children the religious teaching will be the foundation of the entire educational process and the beliefs and values studied will inspire and draw together every aspect of our school community.
