Visions and Values

This term, we will be exploring the value of Self Discipline


St John's School Values


A Value is an individual’s belief that guides our thinking and our behaviour. 


At St John’s, every individual is valued for who they are and what they contribute to the school. Values are intended to support the personal, social and spiritual development of every pupil throughout the school.  Our Values are shared with our local community through our assemblies and through class certificates.  Our values are taught through our weekly assemblies, in our class reflection time and throughout the curriculum where pupils are encouraged to consider and question values in different contexts, deepening their understanding and engagement. We encourage children to 'live the values' in all aspects of their lives both in school and out.  This creates a strong learning environment that enhances academic achievement and develops pupils’ social and relationship skills that can last throughout their lifetime. 


  • Respect

  • Kindness

  • Confidence

  • Tolerance

  • Self-discipline


British Values


Alongside the School Values, we work hard to promote the fundamental British Values to ensure that our pupils leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. The teaching of British Values is an important element of safeguarding, as they help to prevent extremism and radicalisation. Fundamental British Values underpin what it is to be a citizen in a modern and diverse Great Britain valuing our community and celebrating diversity of the UK.  


These values are: 

  • Democracy 
  • Rule of Law 
  • Mutual respect 
  • Tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs 
  • Individual Liberty 


These British Values are promoted throughout our curriculum and across the whole school. They also underpin assemblies, special events and cultural celebrations.  



Growing young minds: a great place to enjoy learning!
