St John’s Primary School and Nursery – Knaphill, Surrey

Headteacher’s Welcome

It is my great pleasure and privilege to welcome you to St John’s Primary School. We are a one-form entry Primary and Nursery school welcoming children aged 2-11 in Knaphill, Woking.

We have a real family feel at St John’s and children clearly benefit from being members of a small community. With around 215 pupils, our school is small enough for everyone to know and look out for one another, but large enough to provide a range of experiences including a range of after school clubs and fantastic educational trips and visits. Our staff love working here, and we are lucky to have a hugely experienced team. We make decisions about the school together, always putting children at the heart of every decision we make.

We are very proud of the academic achievements of our children and children make good progress from the point when they join us. We wholeheartedly believe that the development of each child is about more than classroom achievements. We have a strong focus on well-being and happiness, promoting good mental and physical health for all children and adults at our school. Our values of kindness, courage, respect, responsibility, determination and honesty are taught throughout the school year and underpin everything that we do.

We aim to create a culture of aspiration, building the confidence of our children, empowering them to approach the unknown with self-belief and positivity, believing in themselves and what they are capable of. We aim to inspire and nurture a strong sense of resilience in our children so that any challenges that lie ahead of them can be faced with determination.

Like all schools, St John’s Primary is best seen and experienced so I would be delighted to show you around our school. You will be warmly welcomed by our wonderful staff. Please contact the school office for an appointment.

Mrs Rinttila
