The Vision of St John’s CE Primary School, Rishworth

Matthew 5:16 (NRSV)

“Let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your father in heaven.”

Following Matthew 5:16, people shine through success, honesty, independence, neighbourliness and enjoyment. We believe children learn best when they’re happy and have the confidence to respond to challenges, within a caring Christian environment where adults lead by example. We value the partnership with parents, families and the community to always be the best we can be.

Our aims:

Success
We aim to provide excellent learning opportunities to ensure the best possible progress and attainment for all children whatever their needs and abilities.

Honesty
We aim to develop children’s understanding of the importance of honesty in all relationships and as part of self-reflection in a Christian environment.

Independence
We aim to develop the self- confidence in all our children that enables them to think and work independently, so striving for excellence in all areas of the curriculum.

Neighbourliness
We aim to ensure that every child becomes a compassionate and respectful member of the school, local, national and global communities.

Enjoyment
We aim to be a safe, friendly and welcoming environment where children have exciting and creative learning experiences that help develop an enjoyment and love of learning.
