St John’s is a popular Church of England Infant school set in the village of Churt, which is near Farnham in Surrey. The school is a one-form entry with the capacity for 90 children ranging from 4-7 years. We can accept 30 children into each year group. Staff and governors work together to create a warm, happy, stimulating and caring Christian environment in which the children can grow and develop.
Churt has a thriving community spirit and the school gets involved in many village activities. We are proud of our link with the community and the villagers particularly enjoy the country dancing display put on by our Yr 2 pupils every year for the village fete.
As a church school we have very close links with St John’s Parish Church. Rev Derek Holbird comes into school to take assemblies on a regular basis, working closely with Marion Stevens to ensure that Church and school have a meaningful and happy relationship. Our special times of celebratory worship (eg Harvest, Christingle, Easter and the Yr 2 Leavers' Service) are held at St John’s Church with parents and the whole school community. The children also visit the church as part of the RE, geography and history curriculum.
The school curriculum fulfils all the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage, National Curriculum and the Diocesan Syllabus for Religious Education. The staff and governors fully endorse the entitlement of every pupil to experience a broad and balanced curriculum. The curriculum is enhanced by educational school trips and by inviting visitors into the school.
