As the Head teacher of St John the Evangelist Church School, I am delighted to welcome you to our school.

I feel incredibly privileged to lead St John’s and very much value the importance of working closely with the children, staff, parents and governors. We are proud to be part of the family of schools that belong to the Bath & Wells Multi Academy Trust. We work closely with our local hub family of North Somerset schools and more widely with school and staff across the BWMAT.

We strive to ensure that every member of our school community is able to demonstrate Love for one another; that we are all enabled to Learn to the best of our ability: and that by working Together, We Soar to reach our greatest potential, both in our learning and in our capacity to be the best version of ourselves.​

Our distinctly Christian ethos underpins all that we do, and we promote and develop the values of Faith, Fellowship, Agape (Christian Love), Hope, Forgiveness and Humility. Our values are acknowledged in all areas of school life and underpin our teaching and learning. Supporting this are six key learning behaviours that we wish to ensure every child has mastered by the time they leave school and move on to the next phase of their education. These are Individuality, Creativity, Energy, Perseverance, Bravery and Confidence

Through our rich and vibrant curriculum, we embrace each child’s individual talents and passions while equipping and preparing them for the world that they will go on to shape.  We strive to ignite opportunities for everyone to achieve more than they thought possible and ensure every member of our community is cherished, valued and nurtured in all aspects of their life.

At St John’s we are committed to providing the highest possible standard of education in an environment that both motivates and empowers children to become independent learners and good and caring citizens. We are passionate about developing the whole child and ensuring our children are best prepared for the 21st Century, equipped with the appropriate skills and attitudes to enable them to succeed now and in the future.

All staff have the highest expectations and aspirations for children in their care; they are committed to finding and developing children’s gifts and strengths and ensuring that every child makes the best possible progress and fully succeeds during their time here.

Visitors are always welcome in our school, to see us in action, and meet the adults and children that form and shape our warm and caring community. If you wish to arrange a visit, then do please contact the school office and we will be more than happy to arrange a suitable time.
