Our Christian Vision

We seek within a Christian environment to provide a happy, supportive, caring school that loves and protects children whilst enabling them to flourish on their journey of life, just like the Good Shepherd protecting his sheep.

Love Protect Succeed

We aim to ensure children reach their full potential and foster in them a respect for themselves and others in body, mind and spirit.

‘I am the Good Shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me.’ ‘God is like a Good Shepherd. He knows us, leads us, protects us and keeps us from harm.' John 10:14

Our Mission

In an ever-changing and demanding world we seek to provide a happy and caring family centred village school.

We ensure that our pupils are well-equipped to maintain high standards of attainment as they progress in their education.

Learning together we will be learning for life.

At St John's we aim to:

  • Provide a Christian environment which is caring, happy and secure, and where children and staff have respect and sensitivity to the needs of themselves and others, maintaining a close link with the Church.
  • Ensure that every child will achieve his/her full potential and feel confident and positive in their approach to learning.
  • Be the best performing small school in Staffordshire at Key Stage 1 and fully extend our pupils in Year 3 and Year 4 in the Key Stage 2 curriculum.
  • Develop children's confidence and sense of responsibility, both socially and academically.
  • Be an extended family encouraging parental involvement in all aspects of school life and promoting close link with the community.
