SIAMs inspection report comment

  • This is a Church of England school that is proud to uphold and develop its Christian distinctiveness and this clearly underpins the school's work ensuring that the academic and pastoral needs of all its learners are met.


Ofsted Inspection May 2017 comments

  • Leaders have developed an ethos in which pupils develop confidence socially and academically. Parents, pupils and staff are proud of their school and its caring, inclusive approach.
  • Parental comments such as ‘I cannot speak highly enough of the support and encouragement my child receives’ and ‘We are consistently pleased with the teaching and ethos of the school’
  • There is a positive ‘buzz’ around St John’s Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School.
  • Pupils told me how much they enjoy their learning, and this was clearly evident in my visits to each classroom.
