Information for Parents

This page provides supplementary information for parents
St. John’s school aims to be inclusive and provide the best learning opportunities for every child. We believe that our strong curriculum offer provides every child with the opportunity to grow, feel supported, be challenged and inspired to achieve their full potential.  We want every child to feel safe, secure, valued and happy at our school so that they learn to become confident individuals striving to be successful now and in the future.

Volunteer Policy

We couldn’t provide all the care and support for our pupils without the help of our trusted volunteers. Whether its running a lunchtime chess club, hearing children read or simply coming along to help on a school trip, we couldn’t do it without you!

Volunteering at school is also incredibly rewarding for parents. You will see the results of your efforts at first hand, see children learning and get to know St. John’s by becoming ‘part of the family’.

All those considering volunteering at our school, need to read the attached documents and agree to our safeguarding policies.

All regulated volunteers will need to complete a DBS check and every volunteer will have an induction meeting with the head teacher.

For further information, or for a chat about volunteering, please talk to Mrs Horne, Acting Deputy Head Teacher.



Our Welfare Officer is Mrs. Rosaria Attanasio and any medical matters should be referred to her.  She will be able to assist families, whose children have specific medical requirements, and are in need of an Individual Health Care Plan.  Any medication will be safely stored in school and we ask that families be responsible for ensuring that all medication is in date.  Any child whose medication is out of date will not be permitted to remain at school.
