Welcome to St John's Green Primary School
On behalf of everyone at St John's Green Primary School, I would like to welcome you and thank you for expressing an interest in our school. We fully appreciate that selecting a school for your child is an important decision and to really gauge a feel for a school, it is important that you come and have a look around, meet the staff and ask any questions you may have. It is also important that you visit other schools in the area - as each primary school is different.
St John’s Green Primary School is a split site school, with two buildings in the heart of Colchester. Our Abbey Fields site is a new build and is for our Lower Phase children in Foundation and Year 1, and for our eldest children, Upper Phase, in Years 5 and 6. Our Town Site is for children in Years 2, 3 and 4. Our school is structured to embed the ethos of a primary school over two sites and to ensure that children are ready for the next steps in their learning at the end of each academic year and help children transition effectively and smoothly between the different stages (Foundation – KS1 – KS2 – Secondary) in their learning journey.
At St John's Green, our primary aim is for every child to achieve the best they possibly can in their time with us in a happy, safe and enjoyable environment. Every child is an individual and learns in their own way, has different strengths, skills and needs. All the staff work together to achieve the best for each child, never forgetting that we are here for the children, to provide them with an education that is broad and rich in experience.
Should parents require a paper copy of any information on the school website then please write or e-mail the school detailing the information you require.
An excellent video below sent in by Freya who as part of a science project talks about how we can recycle better to help save the planet - well done Freya.
