Mission Statement and Aims

Mission Statement

In St. John’s Primary School, we aim to create a happy, calm and caring environment, where each child will be encouraged to reach their true potential and experience success in their learning and development.

Central to the creation of this environment is a commitment to the Catholic ethos which permeates all aspects of school life. It reflects the values, attitudes, beliefs and practices of our Catholic Faith and recognises the value and worth of each child through the development of self-respect and understanding.

We aim to establish a community wherein pupils, teachers, parents, support staff and Board of Governors enjoy a sense of belonging and have an important part to play. In St. John’s we strive to ensure that every child will ‘Learn to love and love to learn.'

  • Love of Learning
  • Respect for each other
  • Achievement
  • Enjoyment
  • Creativity
  • Catholic Ethos
