Values and Ethos
St John the Baptist School is a Church of England School founded in 1881, located in the Clarendon Park area of Leicester. Although we do not have a fixed catchment area, we aim to provide a primary education within a Christian context which seeks to serve all members of the school community. Currently over 450 children attend, aged between 4 and 11.
As a school we are committed to enabling all children to achieve their full potential in all areas of their lives. We believe in the unique, individual worth of every child and that all members of our learning community have the right to excellent standards in all areas of the school's life. Teachers, parents, governors and friends work together to ensure we remain a school that is continually evaluating its provision, to
ensure that we respond to the changing needs of our community.
We seek to be at the cutting edge in the use of modern technology and teaching styles, in order that our learning environment enriches the experiences of the children in our care.
The ethos of our school is underpinned by the belief that all members of the school community have the right to work, play, develop and learn in a friendly, safe, positive and supportive environment that celebrates and respects our differences and has at its heart the belief in the individual worth of every member of the school community.
Partnership, respect and community are at the heart of our vision for a school that desires to have at its centre, the love of God.
Loving Learning, building community, growing in faith
Our vision is to serve the city of Leicester by providing a high-quality education with a curriculum that inspires our children, is accessible to all and is firmly rooted in the teachings of Jesus. We strive to enable our children to thrive and succeed, through reaching their academic potential and developing their sense of identity, belonging, purpose and faith.
Our vision is to be an inspirational community where our school and Christian values are embodied by all, with a rhythm of collective worship, hard work and fun where our children are given the opportunity to discover a relationship with God. We are an inclusive and diverse community of staff, parents and children where everyone is known, everyone is valued, everyone belongs and everyone grows; a community where our children are nurtured and achievement is celebrated.
We believe in a strong partnership with St John the Baptist Church and a close relationship with other churches and other faiths in the city which enrich our community and learning.
We believe that every child is an individual and is blessed with a warm, welcoming and caring team of professionals who will strive to ensure that your child’s journey through primary is a happy and successful one.
