Vision, Mission & Values
Our approach to education is underpinned by our core values and beliefs which are encapsulated in our Vision, Mission and Values:
Our vision is for St John’s to become a Centre of Excellence providing, within a Christian environment, all the essential skills and knowledge for our young people to live happy, fulfilled and purposeful lives in a challenging and constantly changing world.
Our mission is to create a community of love and learning, based on Christian values, in which each pupil can achieve their fullest educational potential and thus live life to the full.
We aim to help young people with learning difficulties to develop their full potential through our policy of encouraging equal opportunities for all.
We aim to create the opportunity for educational development to the highest possible level, together with the development of each individual’s talents, abilities, skills and understanding, and their self-esteem and confidence.
We aim to create an environment which practices self-discipline, respect for others, forgiveness, a spirit of generosity and a respectful tolerance towards other religions, races and ways of life and encompassing principles of justice and peace.
We aim for St John’s to be respected and valued for its contribution to a wider community, including the local community, and to the Catholic Diocese of Brentwood, as well as part of a global community.
We aim for our pupils and their families to be able to look back on their time at St John’s with the recognition of how it has helped them to develop and grow into happy and confident individuals.
We value every young person for who they are. We respect and value their families and their diversity of experience.
We recognise and value the contribution of our talented and dedicated staff team, and of our Governors and Trustees.
We value our young people’s achievements and promote the development of their talents.
We offer our young people a caring, nurturing positive, Christian environment in which they feel safe.
We value partnership working in all its forms.
