Care in the Community...
A small group of pupils from Year 4 visited Richmond Hall Care Home to help create some wonderful Easter bonnets and decorations with the residents. This is our second visit to the home and has proved an invaluable opportunity to forge positive links. Our pupils have certainly enjoyed interacting with their new friends!

Our Values this month are...
|Goodness & Kindness|
At St John's we endeavour to promote a variety of beliefs and cultures, all underpinned through our Christian ethos, which reflects the diverse nature of British society. Our curriculum is enriched through visits celebrating British values such as the trip to the National Arboretum at Alrewas, and celebrating our Queen becoming the country's longest reigning monarch and a thoughtful and reflective remembrance service - all which have also supported the learning in the classroom.
We have a democratic process by annually electing school council representatives, who in time have a pupil voice on issues such as healthy eating/living, extracurricular provision and any subject they feel important.
Holidays during Term Time
"Headteachers continue to have the power to authorise leave of absence, but only in exceptional circumstances. While family holidays are enriching experiences, the school year is designed to give families the opportunity for these breaks without having to disrupt their children’s education. It is for schools to consider the specific details and relevant context behind each request".
Nick Gibb MP
If parents feel that exceptional circumstances do apply, they should put this in writing to the Head teacher, giving at least 15 working days notice. The Head teacher will consider each such request separately and independently.
