Our Vision and Values

At St John's CofE Academy we believe that every child has the right to SHINE thanks to an outstanding education. We are passionate about working with children, families and communities and aim to offer the very highest quality education so that every child can achieve to their full potential. Every child in our school will be taught by skilled teachers who recognise and support their individual needs and embed the Christian values to unlock their potential. 
 
Our Values
 
We believe that St John's is a truly special place and our shared Christian values are pivitol to this. As a Church of England Academy we identify values that are rooted within Christian teaching, whilst recognising that these are also important to other faiths, cultures and those of no faith within our community. These Values underpin the whole of our community and inform our school’s vision, aims and ethos, the design of our curriculum, all policies, planning and the school’s management and governance. Our Christian Values are:
 
Perseverance
Trust
Respect
Friendship
Compassion
Forgiveness
 
At St John's we recognise the value of daily collective worship to allow pupils to talk about what they see and hear from the Bible, and how it impacts on all aspects of life, both in and out of school. Collective worship is planned rigorously to include biblical material and Christian teaching, focusing on Jesus Christ and on God as Father and Holy Spirit. Pupils take an active part in worship and we welcome in visitors from wide range of Christian traditions to lead and take part in our daily worship.
Values Day - March 2018
To 'relaunch' our Christian values every class focused on a particular value, learning about specific biblical scriptures and completing activities to help the children understand the importance of these. Each class was challenged to create a display to demonstrate the learning that had taken place. 
 
As well as this, we invited a local artist in to school to work with some of our key stage one children to create values banners to display throughout the school.
