I am very proud to welcome you to St John the Evangelist RC Primary School. We are all very proud of our school and all we do. Our children love learning and strive to do their very best. The children surprise me every day with their enthusiasm and eagerness to learn new things and make progress.
As a Catholic school our values are rooted in the teachings of Jesus and we work hard to foster these values in the children we teach.Everyone is enabled to fulfil their unique potential and together we celebrate being part of God’s creation in all we think, say and do. In our school everyone is respected and cherished and differences are valued. Each member of our community is supported to truly reflect the person of Jesus.
I recognise daily the hard work and dedication of St John the Evangelist staff in promoting a Catholic community where everyone is valued and encouraged to grow into well-educated, caring and confident members of society. We pride ourselves on being a real ‘family’ where everybody knows, loves and looks after each other in our secure, safe and happy school.
As well as giving our pupils a firm grounding in the Catholic faith, we ensure that we deliver a broad, balanced and exciting curriculum which challenges every child, from the most able to those with special needs.
At St John the Evangelist, we are proud of our academic achievements, our friendly purposeful atmosphere and the outstanding extra-curricular provision made available to our pupils.
We expect the highest standards from our pupils in all aspects of school life – in their attitudes to learning and in their behaviour.
We prepare our children to be emotionally intelligent, academically successful and have high expectations and aspirations for themselves and their futures. To learn to be self-empowered within a framework of love, care, and compassion is a balance of values worth working for.
We try to encourage at all times an active partnership with parents, pupils, governors and parish to help ensure the best possible education for each one of our pupils.
We hope that you enjoy looking around our website and school twitter page – although this is only a tiny glimpse of how very special St John the Evangelist is.
Should you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. We are always delighted and proud to welcome visitors to St John the Evangelist and would be more than happy for you to visit and see for yourself what a lovely and vibrant school we have!
Mr. B Lavin
Executive Head teacher
