Responses to our 'bubble' closure provision and then our school closure (1 week) Remote Learning offering
Autumn Term - December 2020
Thanks to all the staff at St. Johns who have enabled the remote learning to take place during the recent school closure and wishing all the school staff a very happy Christmas. KS1 and 2 Parent
I wanted to write to you all to say how much I appreciate everything you have done to support the remote learning at home. The hard work and dedication of the teachers is really appreciated. They have given their time and energy to teaching via teams as well as troubleshooting issues for us as and when they have arrived. I know it takes a lot of background thought and planning trying to get these things working on different devices and their support for phones, paper copies, tablets and laptops has been amazing. The work has been well pitched and accessible to so many of us. You have an amazing team Ms Parsons and I very much appreciate your calm, caring, compassionate leadership at a time like this. You have weathered the storm so well and launched digital platforms that are meeting my ….. children's learning needs very well. Parent to children in KS1 and 2
Finally, I wanted to compliment ***** and ***** on their excellent teaching and the extreme patience they exhibit in dealing with an 'MS Team' of 30+ curious and excited.. (children).. I have been very impressed with how well St John's has dealt with the ongoing crisis under your leadership. It must be immensely difficult and your hard work is very much recognised.

I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you are all doing! It’s a total nightmare to be homeschooling and working at the same time, but I know that you are all under a huge amount of pressure and I think you’re doing a fantastic job. Well done! KS1 and 2 Parent
Could you please thank the Y* and Y* teachers for really motivating ***** and ***** today! Parent of a KS1 and a KS2 child.
Just wanted to drop an email to highlight the enormous effort put in by ***** and ***** last week. **** had a few days with **** and he was absolutely excellent in making sure all the children were okay. *** reassured the children one by one - massive effort put in ... Even with all the hiccups *** kept going very professionally - Fantastic job. ***** also exceeded expectations. *** had a massive class to deal with but was cool, calm and collective all the way through. *** explained and talked through each task. For children that didn’t understand *** went over and beyond to explain. It’s a very difficult task to teach online and keep kids motivated but *** managed so well under the circumstances. *** is clearly passionate about teaching, as it was very evident *** enjoys (the) job. I would be grateful if you can pass on my sincere thanks and to keep up the fantastic job!

Feedback from Summer Questionnaire - July 2019
We carry out an annual survey for parents and pupils and the results are below:
I am extremely happy with the progress of my child. He feels very safe, well supported and always happy to come to school. Well done team St John’s. Keep up the good work.
I am particularly impressed with the school’s Christian values and my son’s progress academically, this is an observation from extra work I do with him at home. The school has not raised any concerns about his academic performance. The After School Club staff are fantastic in caring for my son.
My son has progressed immensely in this year with his reading and writing. He has grown in confidence too. I thank his teacher for all her efforts and for supporting his learning effectively.
St John’s is a lovely school. As a family, so far, we have always felt supported. Thank you!
The staff across all of the phases have always been wonderfully supportive.
St John’s provides great support. My child’s teachers are inspiring her and they are very caring. Thank you.
