Welcome to Royston St John Baptist Primary School

At Royston St John’s, we strive to create a secure and happy environment which inspires high aspiration. We pride ourselves on delivering outstanding provision for all our children. Through personalised learning, we deliver an engaging curriculum and provide our children with memorable experiences knowing that when they come to leave our school, they leave with a lifelong love of learning.

Our dedicated team of staff provide a friendly, nurturing learning environment where pupils feel safe, valued and secure. We work alongside parents, governance and the wider community to provide a creative, balanced and inspiring curriculum. Our door is always open. Parents are always welcome. We are keen for parents and carers to be involved in their child’s learning and successes.

As a Church of England Primary School we have close links with The Diocese of Leeds and share their educational priorities.

Our Christian Values:

  1. Honesty

Always tell the truth; never lie or hide the truth

  1. Respect

Always treat yourself, others and things within your environment in the right way. Be polite and use good manners.

  1. Responsibility

Make good choices and be sensible, even if other people around you aren’t. Be well motivated and proactive to be the best you can be.

  1. Resilience

Keep doing your best, even when it feels hard to do. Don’t give in.

  1. Empathy

Think what it would be like to be in someone else’s shoes and show them that you understand, appreciate.

Mountain Rescue Visit Year 5

What an amazing morning! The Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team visited our lovely Year 5 children as part of their Survival topic. We found out how the Mountain Rescue Team rescue casualties. We looked at all of the equipment they use and even got to trial some! It amazed us that these wonderful people all work for free – they are all volunteers! For more information you can visit their website https://woodheadmrt.org/the-team/ or follow them on twitter @woodheadrescue

Big hearts in Year 3

Our lovely Year 3 children have been thinking about keeping safe during anti-bullying week. They have all written a piece of advice for a child who is feeling upset or being bullied. These STOP signs are going to be displayed in the Year 3 cloakroom to remind our children what they can do to help someone. We are all kind and helpful in Year 3.

‘Big hearts, big minds, big changes.’

Our Church 

Our lovely Year 3 children have been drawing something that is very important to us… our church!

Fantastic Friendships

We have been looking at what makes a good friend. Our lovely children have been really thoughtful and worked as a team to share some wonderful ideas. We are all really proud of our friendships and we all know what it takes to be a good friend.

Foam Fun! 

We have been writing letters and creating shapes in the foam! What a fun and messy way to learn how to write! We loved it!

Outdoor Explorers! 

We have been exploring our trim trail. We have used some positional language to help us find our way around the outside area.





Can you see which instruction we are following?

Wonderful Wishes! 

We have been reading a wonderful story called ‘The Fish Who Could Wish.’ Our super writers have been sharing their own wishes and writing them independently!
