St. John’s School is a voluntary aided Church of England Primary with a Nursery. As a voluntary aided Church of England school, we aim to provide an education based on Christian principles and practise and enjoy close links with our parish church. Governors hope that parents who have chosen the school for their child recognise and are fully supportive of its distinctive ethos. Governors therefore hope that all children will attend acts of collective worship and take part in the religious education curriculum offered by the school. This does not affect the rights parents enjoy under the Educational Reform Act 1988s9(3).
Admission Arrangements 2017-2018
The Governors, who are responsible for admissions to this Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School, have agreed with the Local Authority to admit sixty pupils to the Reception class each year. These arrangements and the admissions criteria are reviewed annually and can be viewed in the document below.
