'Everybody is a genius. But of you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid' - Albert Einstein
At St John’s, all children are viewed as unique individuals. Where Barriers to learning exist, staff work together with pupils and parents to investigate and overcome barriers in a supportive way. We encourage and celebrate determination and effort; the enjoyment of discovery when meeting a range of challenges, working independently and collaboratively, all building resilience and positive approaches for the future. We are a fully inclusive and nurturing school where all children are welcomed.
St John's Church of England Primary School is committed to ensuring that every child is provided with high quality teaching, matched carefully to the needs of all children, and an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum which offers academic rigour and creativity. As a Church of England school, we place a huge emphasis upon developing our learners’ spiritual, moral and social understanding.
All staff at St John's Church of England Primary School are inclusive practitioners and as part of our ongoing assessments, we carefully track the progress of every child and provide support where necessary. However, sometimes a child may require further additional support to enable them to make progress. How this is decided and what we can offer as a school is detailed in our school’s Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Policy.
