What's been happening at St John's

At St John’s Church School we believe in offering a broad and balanced curriculum. We always seek to provide an education that is appropriate to the needs of each child.

We are aware that all children are individuals with different needs and we provide for these both within the normal class situation and through our Special Needs Policy.  This sometimes means that children will receive additional help from a teacher or from a Teaching Assistant, either in the classroom or in another area of the school e.g. library.

A flexible teaching approach will be used throughout the various stages of your child’s education.  Whenever possible children will be taught in year groups of mixed ability.  However, it may be necessary to organise some classes in mixed age groups.  The school is co-educational and reflects the rich cultures of Orton and  Peterborough.
