At St John’s Catholic Primary School, we pride ourselves on our vibrant and successful learning environment, at the heart of its community and parish in Gravesend.
Our strong Catholic ethos permeates all that we do and drives our efforts to encourage and inspire all children to flourish, both spiritually and academically.
It is our aim to provide every child with the highest quality education and the opportunity to discover and nurture their individual talents, inspiring every child to grow in their faith and love of God. Our learning environment is fostered by our key values that we instil in all pupils: resilience, respect, resourcefulness, reciprocation and reflection; enabling every pupil to succeed.
With high expectations of both pupils and staff, our rich curriculum allows every child the opportunity to be adventurous, inquisitive and reflective at every stage of their journey with us; alongside a dedication to providing an enriching pupil experience, filled with opportunities to learn, grow and broaden horizons, beyond the classroom. Together, we believe St John’s develops every aspect of the child: socially, morally, physically, emotionally, academically and spiritually.
We believe in the vital importance of parent partnership and that strong home/school relationships are invaluable to pupils’ wellbeing and development and are passionate about involving families in their child’s education and the life of the school. We encourage all parents/carers to be as involved as they wish with us.
Every child’s success at St John’s is celebrated; and our school community, supported by a committed governing body and team of dedicated staff contribute to this. I feel immensely proud to be Headteacher here, and warmly invite you to visit our school and experience life at St John’s Catholic Primary School.
