Saint John's aims to provide each and every child with a quality education. This is the growth of the whole child intellectually, aesthetically, spiritually, morally and physically. This will be achieved through the continuous development and commitment of all staff.
It is our intention to provide a welcoming atmosphere in which we can work with parents, the community and other agencies to continually improve all that we provide for our pupils. We will strive to raise academic standards and expectations by encouraging attitudes and skills, which enable pupils to develop as conscientious, independent learners.
St John's will at all times support the social and emotional well being of pupils, the development of healthy lifestyles and the self discipline to become responsible and active citizens having a caring attitude towards others.
