St Johns C of E VA First School offers school places for Reception to Year 4.
Their school staff, parents and governors work together to help children flourish as respectful, confident and aspirational citizens who seek to positively contribute to the school community, local community and the world beyond.
Their vision is based around the elements of the Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13:1-23. For seeds to grow, they need firm and strong roots. In this parable, Jesus explains that when seeds are planted in good soil, they grow and thrive, When seeds are planted in bad soil or on unsuitable ground, the roots cannot grow, meaning the plants are weak, Jesus goes on to say, when seeds are planted in good soil the grow fast and bear fruit.
Like birds who nest in trees, the St John’s community aim to nurture their young, who then go on to fly into the world and flourish.
