A Warm Welcome
I am delighted to welcome you to St John’s Catholic Junior School’s Website and Virtual Learning Environment. We are proud to be an inclusive primary school with a determination to provide an excellent education for all our children.
As a Catholic Junior School we strongly believe that education is a partnership between home, school, parish and community. We are dedicated to developing children who achieve personally, academically, socially and emotionally throughout their time at our school. This underlines our school’s commitment to create learners for the future.
Developing children’s attitudes to learning and their self esteem is a crucial element of our work. We aim to foster positive attitudes of respect, responsibility as well as life long learning skills to face the challenges that lie ahead for our pupils. We do this by teaching our children to work hard, do the right thing, never give up and be independent, motivated and creative learners who enjoy 'stretch' and are able to get themselves unstuck. This is known to our pupils as Building Learning Power through the 4 Rs-Resilience,Reciprocity, Resourcefulness and Reflectiveness.
This is developed through our strong relationships with parents, parish and community. We encourage our parents/carers to share the learning journey and become involved in school life. We will keep you informed of your child’s progress and together celebrate their successes.
We are very proud of our school. Our success is due to many factors, including our strong relationships and hard working, dedicated team of staff. We pride ourselves on having a strong and inclusive pastoral support for our children and families.
We aim to continually improve and ensure our school delivers the highest professional standards.
