About St John’s Primary School
St John’s Primary School visits the church in St John’s village for key celebrations. Our Year 6 pupils mark their move to secondary education by attending a leaver’s service at Guildford Cathedral. Members of the clergy participate in the school’s assemblies and support our RE lessons. The School’s Christian Assembly Team also takes part in our school acts of worship. We also celebrate main festivals from non-Christian faiths along with considering key values such as kindness, honesty and perseverance through both our assemblies and PSHE lessons.
Educating the whole child
We are committed to achieving enjoyment and excellence in our academic, creative and sporting curriculum. Our lasting legacy is that children leave St John’s with a love of learning and a pride in their personal development that will be taken into their next phase of education, becoming the foundation for a happy and successful future. The staff and Governors at St John’s are passionate about child safety both in school and via the internet and respect for each other is build into everything we strive to do.
