Head's Welcome

Welcome Ripley St John’s, I hope that our website gives you a glimpse into the exciting journey of learning that we all undertake each and every day. We are a special place, where we value all in our community as individuals and God’s children.


If you are looking for a school that will provide a caring and nurturing environment; where your child can grow and flourish, a place where their happiness and safety is our prime concern and where they will have every opportunity to grow socially, emotionally and academically, then St John’s is just the place you are looking for. We root everything in our golden rule "Treat everyone as you want to be treated" Matthew 7v12.


It is a privilege to educate your children and one that we take very seriously, uncovering and nurturing the talents of your children is a true vocation. We have very high expectations of our children and aim to work closely with parents, carers and the wider community to ensure their success.


Our school family is an exciting and vibrant place to belong and grow. Our staff are dynamic and innovative, they think very carefully about the building blocks to successful learning and design learning experiences that focus on individual pupils and their needs.

We are all individuals and yet we share a common goal (parent, teacher, midday supervisor and cleaner, site manager, office staff), we want your child to be to feel they belong and make a difference.


We aim to foster confidence, perseverance, tolerance and integrity; enhance communication skills; embrace creativity; encourage teamwork; and to promote an open-mindedness.

Children are encouraged to take pride in their learning, earning Dojo points throughout their journey. They are offered opportunities to take on a wide range of additional responsibilities as they pass through the school. We organise events and special occasions to foster a real sense of belonging, promoting teamwork and supporting children’s social, spiritual and emotional development. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular activities and enrich our curriculum through a wide variety of cultural and social experiences.  We are highly inclusive, valuing every child as an important individual – We want our children to use all they have learnt academically, spiritually and morally and make us proud.

We strive to develop passionate learners who will confidently and skilfully move to the next stage of their ongoing learning journey.


Visits to school are warmly welcomed and recommended.


St John’s CE Primary School is committed to creating and maintaining a happy and safe environment for our children to live, laugh and learn. Please use the links below to find out more about the steps we take to safeguard children and how you can help us to ensure that all of our children thrive.


Kind regards,


Mr C Howarth
