Moordown St John's C E Primary School
Vicarage Road, Bournemouth,BH9 2SA
01202 527683

We are a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School in Bournemouth. Being Voluntary Aided allows the school Governors to appoint staff in sympathy with its Christian ethos.

Although our school name goes back to 1853 when the first 
‘St John in the Wilderness’ was built, the school on its present 
site dates from 1877.

Many of our buildings are either new or have been remodelled. We are very fortunate to have an indoor swimming pool, a studio which we use for music, drama, dance and circle time, a large hall and our ‘IMPACT Centre’, which is where our ICT suite is located.

Moordown St John’s School Council is now in its third year. Two representatives (one boy, one girl) are elected from each class through Years 2 to 6 after a process of nominations, hustings, secret ballots, and public vote-counting. We have a special assembly with guests from NatWest, who sponsor our Council, and who come to make the presentations of certificates for the outgoing Council Reps, and badges for the new Reps.


Council meetings are held fortnightly on Monday mornings, and reps then have a ‘Feedback Time’ in their classes, when they report back to their class, and the class can give their opinions, and raise new issues. Reps report to Council any problems or issues that their class would like discussed by the Council, and we set our Agendas according to the Feedback time, and to any matters that teachers, lunchtime supervisors, cleaners, the governors or anyone else involved in our school want us to discuss.

Parents Support Group

Moordown St John's have set up a support group for parents of children on the Autistic Spectrum.

We meet once every half term to discuss various issues and offer support to each other.

Children with autistic tendencies are on the increase and here at Moordown St John's we are keen to draw the families together and offer help and advice.

This can be a very confusing time for your child and yourself and at times you may feel alone with so many questions and nowhere to turn for answers.

In furutre meetings we hope to share mutual concerns and discoveries such as:

  • Useful books we have read about ASD/Asperger's

  • Strategies to try at home

  • The impact of food additives

  • How other members of the family are affected

  • Where we can turn to get help

-as well as inviting local 'experts' along to talk to us.

Does your child:

  • Have over active or hyperactive behaviour?

  • Have obsessions of fixations?

  • Need a set routine?

  • Get upset due to unexpected changes?

  • Have a literal understanding?

Do you feel:

  • Misunderstood

  • There is nowhere to turn

  • You are on your own

  • No-one can answer your questions

If so we would love to see you at one of our informal and friendly meetings. If you are interested, please send in details of your name, your child's name and class and a contact number to the school office. they will gladly hand it on to the co-ordinators of the group and they will be pleased to make contact with you.
