Welcome to St John Baptist Primary School
St John Baptist is a friendly and highly successful one form entry Church of England Primary School. At St John’s, we work hard as a team of learners, so that everyone can achieve their very best. We work in partnership with St Mary’s C of E Primary School. You can find a link to their website under the ‘community’ tab.
Children at St John’s are eager to learn and are very ably supported by our hardworking, dedicated and talented staff. In our community, relationships are based on these core values: loving, caring, attitudes; concern for the whole person; justice and respect for others. We pride ourselves on offering a friendly, supportive environment where all are treated equally.
Whilst we are a church of England Primary School we are here to serve our local community. We welcome applications from families of all faiths and of no faith. For further information on admissions please go to the ‘admissions’ page.
We hope that you enjoy looking at our website and finding out more about us. If you require a paper copy of any of the information on this website please contact the school office.
At St John Baptist our Early Years Foundation Stage, Key Stage One and Key Stage Two results are consistently above the national average. Our latest Ofsted Report graded us as ‘outstanding’ and we are constantly looking at innovative ways to improve the outcomes for all of our children.
What is the Pupil Premium?

SEND (SPECIAL EDUCATIONAL NEEDS AND DISABILITY)
We at St John’s believe all children have the right to a broad and balanced education, and aim to meet the needs of individual children to ensure they receive the help they need. Most children make satisfactory progress without the need for special provision; however, from time to time children need additional support.
