St John’s Meads CE Primary School

Joined February 2020

We are a friendly and caring one-form entry school for children aged 4-11 years, with a strong community feel and an active and supportive parent body.

Our Christian distinctiveness is fundamental to our ethos and vision for education. As can be seen from our ‘Rainbow Values’, we aim to build both the character and faith of our children by:

  • Teaching key learning skills – perseverance, positive attitude, self-reflection and teamwork;
  • Supporting spiritual development through prayer and understanding of The Bible and The Trinity;
  • Modelling how to value and respect the world around us and the people in it.

We want our children to love learning and to love one another, as God loves us. We strive for academic success, whilst providing a wealth of high quality learning experiences across a range of curriculum subjects and extra-curricular activities. This enables all children to explore and develop their unique God-given gifts and talents.

Our motto (IN TENEBRIS LUX) is ‘Light in Darkness’. It is our hope that children at St John’s Meads will develop their understanding and experience of Jesus as their ‘light in darkness’ and to consider how they can be a light to the world, making a positive contribution to society both now and in the future.

St John’s Meads CE Primary School Performance - Joined February 2020

Reading Writing and Maths at expected standard. National Average = 65%


As a new academy to the Trust we await our first outcomes together.

These historical scores show how much progress pupils at this school made in reading, writing and maths between the end of key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2, compared to pupils across England who got similar results at the end of key stage 1.

The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection… aspirations are high.
