Welcome from Headteacher
Welcome to St John’s CE Primary School where you will find a welcoming, inclusive and committed community of learners.
Our school serves its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice. Our school offers a community where everyone is a person known and loved by God, supported to know their intrinsic value. At St John's, we believe that all children are made in the image of God and are unconditionally loved by God. As a school community, we shape our work around our core Christian Values of endurance, wisdom, compassion and interior posture.
“I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10
At St John’s we pride ourselves on our knowledge of our children: the children come first in all that we do. We work hard to know every child, to know their strengths and interests, so that their learning is always challenging and interesting. We work closely with families to ensure that our families are empowered to support their children within and beyond school.
Our school's core Christian Values are kindness and compassion, endurance, wisdom and interior posture.
We are a popular two-form entry primary school with a nursery. The school is situated in exceptional grounds and draws children primarily from Bierley and the Holmewood estate. The team at St John’s work hard to ensure our curriculum is inspiring for our children, responding to their needs both academically and personally, building individual, independent children as they leave our school.
We help our children to truly 'Believe and Succeed'.
During their time at our school, our children develop their faith and own beliefs, learning that these underpin their own character and behaviour. In turn, our children learn that their own character will indeed determine how and what they will succeed in.
We are proud to be part of the Bradford Diocesan Academies Trust (BDAT) family of schools. If you would like more information about our school or BDAT, you can browse our website or visit the BDAT website.
