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. And work closely with our local hub family of North Somerset schools and more widely with school and staff across the BWMAT.

At St John the Evangelist Church School, our vision for every member of our school community is that we are able to demonstrate Love for one another; that we are all able 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 person we can be. In doing so we will ensure that the traditional values on which the school is founded continue to support and drive us in our mission to provide a truly outstanding education for every child enhanced by a distinctly Christian Ethos. Our vision is apparent throughout the school and underpins everything that we do. We strive to ensure that every child is cherished and nurtured in order to support them in all aspects of school life.

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 committed to 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.
