'LEARNING TO MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
THROUGH FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE'
Christian values and high expectations are at the heart of all aspects of our school life. Staff strive to deliver stimulating, fun, engaging and challenging daily learning experiences for our children through the National and International Primary Curriculum.
Our pupils thrive here and we aim to inspire them to become independent, resilient, lifelong learners, whilst working together in partnership with parents, carers, the Church and the wider community.
The school has been graded ‘outstanding’ following our most recent SIAMS inspection. We hold an Inclusion Quality Mark, and the school is now a Centre of Excellence for Inclusion. We are currently engaging in the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools programme and working towards the Silver Award.
The school is now flourishing with a dynamic, energetic, enthusiastic and creative team of staff.
Our mission statement says that we aim to achieve this through:
- Reflecting the teachings of Jesus Christ in our daily lives
- Providing a warm and welcoming environment for our school and the wider community
- Fostering a lasting love of learning
- Encouraging and celebrating achievement
- Expecting the highest standards of work and behaviour
- Effective teaching which develop independence and inspires creativity in a broad and balanced curriculum
- Addressing individual needs and diversity within an inclusive ethos.
Ethos at St John's
At St. John's Angell Town C of E Primary School we believe that each one of us is of equal importance in the sight of God. We recognise the uniqueness of every individual and the contribution that each individual brings to our school community – we are all God’s special children growing together in faith, love, knowledge and understanding. We aim to ensure that every child’s special talents are suitably challenged and developed.
We place great emphasis on academic achievement, the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of each child, and we expect high standards of behaviour and appearance. We aim to develop independence in both work and judgement. We want every child to be able to work well with other, showing social skills of co-operation and leadership and to be motivated to develop from a wide range of experiences.
At St. John's Angell Town C of E Primary School we believe it is vital that children learn to serve God and one another. It is not only what we are taught but how we are taught; children learn and grow in understanding as much from our attitudes, our behaviour, our caring for each other and our own commitment to God. We must ensure that this is evident in our relationships with each other.
We hope all children who come to this school will enjoy their time with us and grow into happy, strong and lively members of the community.
