Dear Parents / Carers,

Thank you for taking time to view the St.John’s CEC Primary School website It is intended as a handy reference for you. For full prospectus information, please download the PDF.

St. John’s is a Church of England (Controlled) Primary School which means that it was started by C. of E. deed in 1846. In 1944 it was taken over by the Local Education Authority, but still retains its church link through the Portsmouth Diocese who appoint foundation Governors to help manage the school. Christian principles underpin the school’s policies and culture, and good links with local churches enhance the spiritual development of the children. The result is a safe, caring environment where all children can succeed.

St. John’s is a Primary School which caters for children from rising five years old to eleven years of age. The work in each class is individually based allowing each child to work at the level of his or her ability. Therefore, in whichever class your child is working, he or she will be extended and challenged to fulfil his or her potential.
