Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to St John’s CE (C) Infant School. We hope you find the information on our website useful and it enables you to build a good picture of our lovely, happy school situated on Dewsbury Moor and closely linked to St John’s Church, which is part of the Diocese of Leeds.


We are all really proud of our enthusiastic children who are passionate about learning and show lots of care, respect and forgiveness towards each other, as well as demonstrating many other Christian values, as recognised in our latest SIAMS inspection that states we are an outstanding Church School.


I have recently joined the St John’s family, April 2019, and I could not be happier to be part of such a committed, approachable and hard-working team who share my whole philosophy of education. Firstly, this means ensuring that at the heart of every decision made is increasing the enjoyment the children get out of their learning and the huge satisfaction gained from their achievements. We aim to build confidence and learn to be tolerate in a safe learning environment where everyone is valued so that we can all face the challenges in everyday life. We hold high expectations to encourage all children to thrive to reach their full potential academically, socially, emotionally, morally and spiritually. We want to create treasured memories that will last a lifetime.


Our latest OFSTED report shows that we are a good school with some outstanding features. Enjoy exploring our website and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need any more information.


Kind regards


Mr Aidan Blackburn

Head Teacher
