St John's CE (VC) Primary School

Life in all its fullness

Information for Parents


Our PE takes place on a Friday and as before, please send your child to school in their PE kit on these days (this should be a white t-shirt, plain black jacket or school jumper, with black shorts/joggers and trainers/pumps). We ask that you ensure your child's PE kit is weather appropriate. As we approach the summer months, you may also wish to send in a sun hat for your child along with some sun cream. Please make sure these have your child's name on!  


Reading Diaries and Books

Reading Diaries are due in on a Monday and books will be changed and returned the same day. Each week you child's diary will be checked and it is expected that they have read at least 5 times that week at home. 


Spelling Tests

All children now have spelling logs and these contain the weekly spellings for the whole year as well as a section that staff fill in to show how well your child has scored in class. It is important that logs are returned to school every Monday so we can record you child's result. 


Water Bottles

All children should bring in their own water bottle each day with their name on. Please do not send in juice or fizzy drinks. 



Milk and toast is available at morning break and must be ordered and paid for in advance. If you would like to order snack for your child please get in touch with the school office. If your child does not wish to have milk or toast, they can bring in a healthy snack. We also have fresh fruit available in the classroom throughout the day.
