Welcome to St John's Church of England Primary School, Tisbury.


St John’s is a relatively small village school with a calm and friendly feel about it. We now have 116 children from Reception to Year 6, in five classes. Our ethos and philosophy is that we are committed to ensuring that the children are engaged and enthused in their learning where children are challenged and supported to achieve their full potential.

In our school, teaching and learning is structured creatively to ensure each child’s individual needs and interests are carefully considered and catered for, with a broad and balanced curriculum. We encourage children to think creatively and prepare them for the wider world.

Our philosophy and ethos is evident when you look around our school and all staff, governors and myself have a strategic vision to ensure the school continues to develop and grow to benefit the children. We have a wonderful team that are motivated and determined to make a difference to the lives of the children at St John’s.

In order for each child to reach their full potential, it is vitally important that the school and parents work in partnership. Behaviour and homework policies have been written with input from all of the school community to ensure the expectations are clear and the children receive support from home and school as required. If at any time you have any questions, concerns or celebrations in your child’s education or lives, please share them with us, as we will with you.

This website can only provide a flavour of what we offer here at St John’s and we understand how important it is to find the right school for your child. Therefore, if you are thinking that your child may want to attend St John's, please do come along and visit us to understand and experience the philosophy, vision and ethos of our school.
