St John’s CE Academy – Wednesbury

Welcome from Sarah Cockshott – Principal at St. John’s C of E Primary Academy.

We are a one form entry primary school situated within the town of Wednesbury.

At St. John’s we aim to give every child the best start possible to their education. The Early Years are crucial to a child’s development and our Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 enable the children to get their school careers off to a flying start.  This is then built upon in Key Stage 2.  Throughout the school we want our children to enjoy a wide range of experiences which bring the curriculum to life and make learning fun. All our staff work hard to ensure the best possible quality of education for the children in every year group.

At St. John’s C of E Primary Academy we are all enthusiastic learners with a thirst for knowledge and a desire to challenge ourselves, be able to persevere, respect one another, be polite, confident and considerate and believe in God and ourselves to achieve our goals. St. John’s C of E Primary Academy works very well in partnership with both staff and parents to support the school’s ethos and values. Parents are regularly welcomed and invited to take an active role in school life.

Our key Christian Values which our patron St John the Baptist taught us are:

  • G-Generosity: We have generosity in our hands.
  • E-Endurance: We have ambition and endurance in all of us.
  • T-Tolerance: We have tolerance in our minds.
  • F -Forgiveness: We have forgiveness in our hearts.
  • A -Ambition: We have ambition and endurance in all of us.
  • B -Belief: We stand on our own belief.

At St. John’s we are one big family and our values underpin how we interact with each other. We believe in each other and God to aim high and achieve.
