At St. John’s Catholic Primary School we pride ourselves on our welcoming Christian ethos, founded on the teachings of Jesus. We aim through our curriculum, our policies and procedures, and through our day to day witness, to strive to uphold the greatest of Christ’s commandments:
‘‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is to ‘Love your neighbour as yourself.’
St. John’s is a place where the Spirit of Christ lives. It is a school where all children are welcomed and each one nurtured in a union of support between school and parish so each may reach their full potential. We celebrate the uniqueness of the individual and believe each child is created in the image and likeness of God and has a spiritual destiny to fulfil.
In order that we may achieve this ethos within our school and the wider community that we serve, there are a number of values and principles which guide our actions in school – they are all outlined in the tabs under Spiritual Life.
