Welcome to St John the Baptist Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School.


St John the Baptist Primary School

St John the Baptist Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School
is a medium sized primary school serving the local community.

As a Church school we have strong links with St John’s Church on Durham Road.

The school opened in 1941 and had a major refurbishment in 1991/92.

We serve the areas of Ragworth, Little Ragworth, Fern Park, Woodlands Estate, Sheraton Park and Primrose Hill. We are a caring and inclusive school and strive to provide a safe and welcoming environment for our pupils.

Our aims are to support all children in an atmosphere of care and understanding whilst giving each child the opportunity to achieve their potential in an exciting, interesting, environment.

Our Shared Vision

Our vision sees St John’s school at the heart of the community,
with God at the centre of what we do with and for each other.

Our school community encompasses all of our children, parents, staff, families,
Governors and members of the Parish Church.

We will encourage all in our community to value learning.

We will provide opportunities for all to develop self-confidence, self-discipline and self-esteem that they will have the courage to be open to new ideas, to try new experiences and aspire to be the best they can be.

We want all in our community to experience kindness, grow in faith and develop a ‘healthy minds and bodies’ lifestyle.

We will offer a creative, enriched curriculum that tries to meet the needs of all learners through a highly inclusive and inspirational approach.

We will encourage each other to become tolerant, forgiving and honest; promoting perseverance, confidence and respect for all people everywhere, preparing our children for life in modern Britain.

Above all we will ensure that everyone feels welcomed,
safe and loved – that they belong.

A child in our school should feel………



Wouldn’t it be amazing if every child in the UK knew how to recognise the signs of abusive or potentially harmful situations, and had the confidence and self worth to know what to do to keep themselves safe?

Since 2004, Kidsafe UK (Registered charity 1105179) founded by Val Webb & Jude Walker has been delivering specialised child protection/safeguarding programmes…

Our mission is to protect, educate and empower children without shattering their innocence. With the help of our puppet, KS, our courses are uniquely designed to help children take an active role in deciding how they themselves can recognise and protect themselves from all forms of abuse.
