St John's C of E Primary School

"Use your God-given gifts to serve others." 1 Peter 4: 10

Stars of the week

On a Friday morning, St John's joins together to celebrate our 'Stars of the Week'. We think it is important to share our children's 'God-given talents' and praise those who have succeeded in any area of school life. For some, it is the standard of their work we are celebrating, for others it is their attitude to school and for others it is in the way they have shown they are living out the school values.


While we have been in lockdown, we have continued to carry out our Collective worships on Teams Live. On the website, you can see who our stars are and why. Keep scrolling and you can also see examples of their incredible work. Every week the accomplishments are different, and every week we feel so proud of what has been achieved.
