Caring for Others ✝ Achieving Excellence
We, at St John the Evangelist CE Primary School provide a happy, nurturing and supportive environment founded on the principles of the Christian faith; helping to develop children’s spiritual growth and moral understanding. All members of our school community are valued and respected, so that everyone can have a positive attitude to themselves, others and life.
