Nurturing all talents

St John’s is a Roman Catholic Primary School in Bridgnorth, for pupils aged 4 to 11.

“We have a dedicated staff who aim to provide an environment where learning is enjoyable and where children feel safe and happy, with our faith central to what we do and who we are,” said Head Teacher Mrs Jessica Buzzing.

“We believe that every child is a unique individual and we encourage them to explore and develop their learning skills, grow with confidence and enthusiasm, learn how to accept responsibility and, very importantly, strive to reach their full potential.”

Academic achievement is important at St John’s but at the same time the school nurtures the talents of all pupils, whether religious, sporting, musical, artistic or in drama. Pupil voice is important and there are active School and Faith Councils.

The school offers wrap around care from 7.30am to 5.30pm, Monday-Friday, plus a range of after-school clubs throughout the year.

“We firmly believe in the value of strong parent and community links at St John’s. Parents are vital partners in their child’s education, safety and well-being. Here at St John’s, we have an enthusiastic and effective PTA which always warmly welcomes new members to plan and organise exciting events to raise funds to support a range of educational experiences for our children.

“We recognise that everyone in our community is on a lifelong learning journey, therefore staff are committed to professional development based on their own learning experiences in order to achieve the highest standards in everything we do, ensuring the best outcomes for our pupils.”

St John’s is “Good School” according to the OFSTED report of 2017 and “Outstanding” in its S48 Denominational inspection in March 2018.

Mrs Buzzing added, “If you would like to see us in action, please contact the office to arrange a visit – you will be very welcome. I look forward to meeting you.”
