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

I am Lisa Portch the headteacher here at St John’s Primary School and I would like to welcome you to our school website. 

St John’s is a relatively small village school with a calm and friendly feel about it. We now have 126 children from Reception to Year 6, in five classes. Our ethos and philosophy are 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.

I, our governors and wonderful staff team have a strategic vision to ensure the school continues to develop and grow to benefit all the children.

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.

We welcome questions, concerns or celebrations of children’s education and achievements from parents. 

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.
