'Relationships are excellent and the school is a harmonious and cohesive community.' SIAMS 2017

St. John’s CE Primary School is committed to providing a full and efficient education to all pupils and embraces the concept of equal opportunities for all.


We will endeavour to provide an environment where all pupils feel valued and welcome.


For a child to reach their full educational achievement a high level of school attendance is essential. We will consistently work towards a minimum of 96% attendance for all children, which is the national average. Every opportunity will be used to convey to pupils and their parents or carers the importance of regular and punctual attendance.

The school will at all times endeavour to support parents/carers in overcoming any barriers to achieving regular school attendance.

If a child is late, after 8:50am at Daisy Bank and 9am at Park Lane, the parent and the child must enter through the main entrance and report to the office for a late mark and the child must be signed in by a parents/carer. The registers will remain open for 30 minutes and if a child arrives after that time the morning’s absence will be recorded as ‘unauthorised’.


Lateness is closely monitored by the school and the Education Welfare Officer.


Please ensure that your child(ren) arrive at school ON TIME for a prompt start to the day as it is possible that they may miss the beginning of a lesson.

If your child is absent from school, please telephone the office on the first morning by 9:30am so that their absence is registered.


We ask that parents/carers organise family holidays for outside of term time. Further information on this can be found here:
