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.

Here are some of the photos of our reenactment of the coal mining strikes of 1984. Some of the children took the role of the police, and some took the role of the protesters. It gave the children a great understanding of the emotions and importance of the events which took place!
