MESSAGE FROM HEAD THE TEACHER
Welcome to St John’s Church of England Primary School.
The purpose of our website is to inform parents, pupils and visitors about the school’s policies, activities, events and of the standards that we endeavour to achieve in our teaching and learning.
All of the staff and governors are united in our commitment to the continuous improvement of the quality of teaching and learning through collaborative professional development. We recognise every child as an individual, and we endeavour to support the academic and personal development of all children who attend St John’s. We encourage children to have a sense of purpose and responsibility, and to take pride in their achievements and in the achievements of others.
Our vision is rooted in Christian values: faith, hope, care, responsibility and respect. We promote tolerance and acceptance for all, love, forgiveness and excellent behaviour for learning.
At St John’s we welcome parents and carers to take as wide an interest and involvement as possible, because we know that children make faster progress when we work in partnership. Seeing ourselves as part of a wider community we work in partnership with local schools such as Crampton Primary School and we endeavour to develop existing and new opportunities to work with people and institutions across London and internationally.
We hope that you enjoy exploring our website and perhaps return occasionally to see our record of St John’s as we continue to develop and evolve. Thank you for taking an interest in our school.
Mr Matthew Velada-Billson
Comments from Ofsted
Pupils show positive attitudes across a range of contexts, especially when engaged in lessons. They are supportive of each other and interact well when learning together. The school is a calm, happy and orderly environment. Pupils are polite and treat visitors with respect and consideration, for example by holding open a door or asking if they can be of help. They are friendly and gregarious, reflecting the schools’ four core values extremely well.
