Welcome to Blackpool St John’s Church of England Primary School.
Blackpool St John’s is a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School with its ethos and teaching founded on Christian values and the belief that individuals are created by God and precious in His sight and that “Everyone Matters in God’s World”.
Our central concern is the education of the whole child. This stems from the Christian belief that all people are made in God’s image so all are equally worthy of care and all have a valuable contribution to make to the school and wider community.
Our school is committed to ensuring that every child reaches their full potential through an exciting and innovative curriculum and high quality teaching and learning. We aim to provide the perfect conditions for learning as we believe that how children learn is as important as what they learn. We use highly developed assessment procedures which takes into account every individual child along with an enriched curriculum which includes outdoor learning experiences and the development of emotional competencies.
Our specialised curriculum develops a child’s curiosity and knowledge of the local community, the world and the natural environment through the National Curriculum. We aim to foster this curiosity through our vision of being a school community where enquiry skills are well developed and we believe in forging strong partnerships.
Our vision statement is simply
“Everyone Matters in God's World”
‘Wanting the best for each member of the school – within a Christian environment, working in partnership with each other, with home, church and the community – led by the hand of God’.
