At St John’s we fervently believe in an active working partnership between home and school and we endeavour to develop excellent pupil, parent, teacher and staff relationships in order to promote the development of the individual.
Our aim is for every child, whatever their background or their circumstances, to have the support they need to be healthy, stay safe, enjoy and achieve, make a positive contribution and eventually achieve economic well-being. As a way of delivering these outcomes we provide access to ‘Extended Services’.
At the academy we are firmly committed to our equality duty and treat very seriously our legislative responsibilities including equality issues in relation to gender, age, race, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation and gender identity. We do all in our power to promote a positive and welcoming culture to ensure that all children in our care are safe and are supported to fulfil their potential.
Our pupil standards and achievement are amongst the best in the country with pupil attainment being deemed as ‘outstanding’ with an excellent quality of learning.
The academy has a broad, balanced and rich curriculum, where all aspects are valued for their contribution towards the development of a child’s understanding and enjoyment of life and of God’s world.
At St John’s our ethos is very much based on Christian values: honesty, courtesy, fairness, openness, sensitivity, respect for integrity, the dignity and needs of pupils, individual worth, uniqueness, justice, equity, mutual care, concern, forgiveness and reconciliation are all expressed in the academy’s daily practices. We encourage all relationships to be founded on these principles.
We hope that you will find the information in this prospectus and on the website helpful. It is by design a brief summary of St John’s Academy and we would be happy for you to contact us for further information on any area.
We have a strong Leadership and Staff Team and encourage you to discuss any concerns with us. In addition we also love to hear good news!
We look forward to receiving your child(ren) into the academy.
