Welcome from the Headteacher, Mrs Carolyn Wilkinson
Dear Parents and Carers
On behalf of the governors and staff of St John’s Gosport Church of England (Voluntary Aided) , I would like to welcome you to our school website.
At St John’s we pride ourselves on providing high quality care and education guided by our Christian values: Love, Courage and Respect. We offer a blend of the traditional and the contemporary; a safe, secure and well-resourced environment which fosters respect for self, other children, adults and the environment. Children are able to experience enjoyment of school and celebrate the attainment of their full and highest capability in a creative and joyous learning atmosphere.
We are an inclusive school and we also work hard to preserve the school’s cultural roots, teaching children to know their own heritage, but at the same time learning to understand and respect the different backgrounds of others. As a Church of England school we seek to achieve our aims within the context of the Christian faith, keeping true to the school’s Christian foundation and purpose. However, we warmly welcome children of families from all backgrounds, whose parents/carers will support the education of their children in a school with clear values, a family-centred approach and high standards.
Our professional team is highly motivated to provide children with a broad-based and challenging learning experience. We are committed to nurturing children’s spiritual, academic, moral and social development. For us, the education process is a ’golden triangle.’ This means the child, the parents and the school, all work together to ensure every child receives the maximum benefit from their education. Parents who choose St. John’s find that if they or their children have any concerns, we will always listen. We value parents’ opinions on the school and on their child’s achievements. Of course, we always listen to children’s views and value their thoughts and feedback too.
We hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school and a flavour of what we can offer your children and family. If you have any further questions or need more information, please contact us through the school office.
