Welcome toSt John’s of England Primary School

Lisa Askew	Head of School Lynda Doel
Head Teacher
Welcome to St John’s CE Primary School. We are a highly inclusive, Church of England Primary school in the heart of Penge. A small, one-form-entry school where we pride ourselves on knowing each child and their family, valuing every member of our school community. St John’s is a school that empowers everyone to fulfil their unique potential in a safe, caring and creative learning environment. Through inclusive and aspirational teaching, we aim for every child to succeed as a lifelong learner in an ever changing world. Our school vision promotes and encourages children to thrive emotionally, socially, physically, creatively, academically as well as spiritually. We understand the need to nurture every child to allow them to fulfil their capabilities.

We are very proud of our inclusive ethos at St John’s and seek to reflect this in everything we do. Our school is a community where all feel valued and respected as we recognise that children learn most when they are happy, feel safe and are confident as learners. Therefore, developing important life skills such as problem-solving, resilience, perseverance and independence are the bedrock of supporting all pupils to achieve their potential.

Church of England Education Trust Aquinas Church of England Education Trust

At Aquinas, we work together so that our learners have an exceptional education; one where individuality is celebrated, talents are nurtured and progress is sustained from early years to Post 16.

Established in 2013, the Trust was founded as a natural development of positive relationships built between neighbouring Church of England schools; initially in the Bromley area. In November 2018, we added two community schools to our family, Rye College and Rye Community Primary School in East Sussex.
