To ensure children achieve well, progress is carefully and constantly monitored and recorded throughout
the year, allowing teachers to challenge children, identify and support gaps in children’s knowledge and
understanding and inform children of their progress and next steps in learning. This occurs via verbal
feedback, marking in books, peer and self-review and periodic tests and quizzes. Parents are kept informed
of their child’s progress via parent’s evenings and end of year reports.
At St John’s children are seen ‘in the round’. We believe that spiritual and personal growth is as important as academic achievement.
Opportunities to support this development are central to the school’s ethos. These include the opportunities to; play a musical instrument,
take part in sports activities, super-learning days, charitable acts, clubs, plays, concerts, local and national events andmuch more. In this way,
each person is uniquely valued and their gifts and potential are nurtured and developed.
