We’ve been working hard!
St John’s is as vibrant and busy as it has ever been. The children have been working hard and the work in the books and on display in the classrooms is testimony to this.
Thank you to those parents who have come in to visit and meet the teachers. There will be more opportunities in the coming weeks, so make sure you read the newsletter for up-to-date information.
Now the roof is finished the playground is clear of scaffolding we are looking to enhance the playground. Our newly appointed School Council are gathering ideas for having a ‘trim trail’ for the children to use. In time these children will put together a ‘design brief’ that will be shared with potential contractors. It may take some months before the project is completed because of the competitive tendering process and the fact that the weather will be against us, but we will keep you updated nevertheless.
We have other teams of pupil leadership and are very thankful for those in the Catholic Life Committee and our Reading Buddies who too, are helping in making this an even better community.
Now, more than ever, whilst you are taking part in home learning, it is important to be aware and be safe online.

A message for families from Southwark Council
We understand there are many children and families who have high needs and we will continue to have these families in mind and do what we can to offer them the support and help they need when we are able to. The council has a webpage that you may find useful with details of support including a hardship fund for emergency support.
