Motto, ethos statement and school values

Our school motto is displayed all around our school and helps us to think of our purpose here at St. John's. It helps us to live out the New Commandment that Jesus gave us:


John 13:34-35 “….love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another, then everyone will know that you are my disciples”.

Our finished ethos statement is encompassed in a heart to show that love really is at the heart of everything at St. John’s with a thread that ties us together. Have a look when you come into school for the thread that that is woven around school showing how our love brings us together.  Through love, and the love of one another, through faith and following Jesus, we look to let our lights shine.


“So now faith, hope and love abide, these three, but the greatest is love.” Corinthians 13:13

We encourage our children to live out the school motto and ten values and the staff and children felt that all ten should remain as they were all so important for us and our school.

Our children are encouraged and rewarded for living out the values in school and at home. This teaches them to be good citizens, serve others and make a difference in our school and the world around them.
