GSO Test



Raising standards at St John's Catholic Primary School requires focus on what we do in the classroom.  Continued and sustained improvement is dependent upon improving the quality of learning and teaching that is taking place on a daily basis.

At St John's, the expectation is that all pupils are provided with high quality learning experiences that lead to consistently high levels of pupil achievement. 

We expect every teacher to be a good teacher – no child deserves less.

By adopting a whole school approach to teaching and learning across the school, we aim:

  • To provide consistency of teaching and learning across the school
  • To enable teachers to teach as effectively as possible
  • To enable children to learn as well as possible
  • To promote British Values
  • To give children the skills they require to become more effective lifelong learners
  • To provide an inclusive education for all children
  • To learn from each other, through the adoption of a collaborative, enquiry based approach to teaching and learning, where good practice is shared
