Our Christian Distinctiveness

At St John’s C of E Primary School, our Christian vision is to nurture and inspire every child to achieve their potential with the development of the whole child through high standards of social, emotional, academic, creative & physical achievements as future global citizens.. ‘I came so that they could have life – indeed, so that they could live life to the fullest’ John 10:10


This, alongside our Core Christian Values of Trust, Love, Cooperation, Courage, Resilience and Respect, drives all that we do and underpins everyday life in our school, enabling all to flourish.


This was recognised in our latest Ofsted inspection which stated that ‘The school’s Christian ethos allows each child the chance to shine.’ (Nov 2021).

Courage Class had a great opportunity to visit the Buddhist Temple where we were greeted by one of the Monks, who delivered an introduction about the Temple, the life of the Buddha and monastic life. Finally, children were be able to explore the Buddhism faith by experiencing a short meditation and then there was time to ask any questions they had. This was a wonderful opportunity to experience and learn about the Buddhist faith and their way of life through mindfulness.

St John's had a visit from the actors at Wintershall who delivered two powerful stories from the Bible and children at St John's were able to ask questions afterwards.
