St John's CE (VA) J and I School

 Welcome to St John's J & I School, Golcar website

                            Our School Vision Statement

"They come this way only once, so we should aim

to pave their pathways

      with quality learning experiences."


I have taught you wisdom and the right way to live.

Your education is your life - guard it well

 Proverbs 4:11-13

St John's is a church school with a positive ethos firmly embedded in strong Christian values. These values help our children to flourish as they begin their learning journey in our school. There is a real sense of community and a warmth that impacts on the achievements children make during their time with us.

We have a strong bond with our local village church, St John's, and the children attend special services and workshops that further embed their Christian faith.

     'Together, you have created a school which is firmly rooted in its Christian values of love, honesty, forgiveness, respect and friendship.' 

     'Parents say you are a nurturing school which instils good values. Pupils are well behaved and care about the school.'  Ofsted October 2018 


St. John’s is highly inclusive and allows ‘nothing to stand in the way’ of its pupils.

Several parents agreed that when they needed someone,

the staff were there for them.

School Prayer

This is our school. Let peace dwell here.

Let the room be full of contentment.

Let love abide here. Love of one another. 

Love of mankind. Love of life itself. And love of God.

Let us remember that as many hands make a house,

so many hearts make a school.
