Welcome from the Headteacher

We Will Shine!

A song written and composed by Gareth Withers, with the help of the amazing children of St John's. The entirety of the song was created remotely during the Covid-19 lockdown. As part of Remote Learning, the children were tasked with creating the lyrics, linked to our vision and values. We are very proud of this.

Welcome from Mrs Laura Stevenson - Headteacher


At St John’s Church of England Academy, our motto is "I will shine!". All members of our school community use this motto to live out our school vision. We strive to be excellent in all that we do and aim for children to leave us as confident, happy citizens who can flourish in all aspects of their lives, both now and in the future. We really are a family here! We offer a warm Christian environment in which we use our core Christian values of: Identity, Drive, Excellence, Character, Teamwork and Stewardship to be the very best we can be. These values are threaded through all aspects of our curriculum and school life. 


We are incredibly proud of our school and the children who come to learn here. We are a one form entry school for children aged 4 -11 years. Set in spacious grounds, we provide the highest standard of education for all our pupils, in an inclusive and stimulating learning environment. Our before and after Ewe Club, provided by our own dedicated staff, is part of our offer to meet the needs of parents and families.  


Teaching and learning at St. John's brings subjects to life, both in the classroom, and through a variety of inspiring enrichment opportunities before, during and after the school day. Our bespoke values-based curriculum and rich programme of extra-curricular activities contribute towards a well-rounded and relevant education, supported by excellent pastoral care. Learning at our school captivates, excites and challenges, leading all children to flourish. We seek to capture pupils’ interests, extend their knowledge and skills and raise their aspirations. We also encourage lots of child-led opportunities within school, inspiring them to be outward-facing courageous advocates- at home and at school. Please take the time to look at our Twitter page @Stjohnscoventry to see some amazing learning and enrichment opportunities.

Our school is an inclusive and welcoming place where everyone is treated with respect. We have very high expectations in terms of both learning and behaviour and the children respond with enthusiasm, politeness and consideration for others. We value parental engagement and aim to work closely with parents and carers as well as forge productive links locally, nationally and around the globe.


Our website is designed to give you a flavour of the wonderful life of the school, the learning from our pupils and the high quality education we deliver.


Please also come and visit us. Meeting the amazing children of St. John's and speaking with our friendly staff will allow you to see for yourself, not only the academic excellence and wider achievement that lies at the heart of the school, but also experience the friendly, caring values-based ethos that pervades the whole school community. Children at St. John's really do shine- we'd love for you to join us.


To arrange a visit please telephone the school office. (02476674092).  We look forward to meeting you and sharing more about our school.


Together, we will shine!


Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your father in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
