Latest News from the Headteacher

Monday, 8 January 2018

Happy New Year to you and your families from all the staff, governors and myself. May 2018 hold much health and happiness for you all. Why do I not wish you wealth? I do, but I think we are very wealthy in more ways than one on account of: having a home, a job, relationships and love. During January it is important for us to take stock of these things.

As a school we have so much to celebrate. We have: great children, excellent staff, supportive parents, an active governing body, a successful PTA, a thriving parish and the commitment by all to make the time at St John’s the very best it can be.

The latter is why it is so important for us not to let anything distract us from this, especially building works. By January 2019, most of the exterior building work will be completed and St John’s will have a school fit for another 40 years. Between now and then though, the children have much to achieve, strive for and accomplish, so let’s make 2018 a great year.

Best wishes.

Jonathan Shields
