Vision and Values

Let Your Light Shine!

St John's is a place where we can grow as life-long learners, understand the value of trusting friendships, show thankfulness and compassion to others and can make mistakes, knowing that we will be forgiven. We can both find peace and become peacemakers in the knowledge that we are all treasured and loved as precious children of God.

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."

John 8:12

These words of Jesus are at the heart of our school’s vision. 
They inspire and motivate our whole school community. 

Jesus also reminded us in Matthew’s gospel that we are lights for the world. 
As we seek to follow him, we can share his light with others and change the world! 

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven."

Matthew 5:16

At St John’s C of E Infant School the staff and governors have a responsibility for promoting positive values to help children develop spiritually, morally, socially and culturally.  As a church school the vision at St John’s is underpinned by our Christian values which permeate all areas of school life.  Our overarching aim within our Mission Statement is to deliver, ‘An outstanding education within a caring Christian environment’. Delivering this will help everyones 'light shine'. 

Our values were created by the whole school community (pupils, parents, staff and governors) to find out which values we feel are most important to St John’s with particular reference to Collective Worship.  Although we will promote all the values as a matter of course, the six top values identified by the school community were:

Thankfulness          Peace          Love and Compassion          Forgiveness          Trust          Friendship   Screenshot-2023-01-17-153331.png

Our Year 2 Values Leaders promote these values throughout the year and end their year by choosing someone to hand on the role to, expressing why they feel that person demonstrates the value.

  Our worship is based upon a different focus value each half-term, for example thankfulness for Harvest, Peace for Christmas and Forgiveness at Easter. 

Our long term Worship-Plan can be viewed here

The rules we use to help us live out these values in school and let our light shine are our Rainbow Rules.

For each colour of the rainbow on our school logo we have a rule, which, if we follow them all, we will achieve our vision to let our light shine!
