St John’s CofE VA First School


St Johns is a Church of England First School where we learn, work and play together in a happy, stimulating and secure environment, where everyone is valued and encouraged to achieve their best. Our motto is Learning together, aiming high and our core values are Friendship, Aspiration and Respect, which lie at the heart of everything we do. Although our school day is extremely busy, there is always a sense of calm and purpose. We all strive to do our very best in everything we do. We value excellent character (being respectful, friendly and honest) every bit as much as our academic effort (hard work, progress and attainment). Equally important for all of us is a sense of enjoyment we believe school should be fun. We are a first school for 300 children aged 4 to 9 years in the heart of the busy market town of Frome and we work closely with 16 other schools in the Frome Learning Partnership. We also have strong links with the many nurseries, which feed into us and with the two middle schools to which most of our children transfer at the age of nine.
