Together in love, we learn with Respect, Hope,Friendship and Forgiveness



St John’s CE (C) Infant School – A Statutory Proposal made by the Governing Body to change the upper age limit from September 2022.


In response to the demands of parents over a number of years, the Governing Body propose to become a through primary school by extending our age range for children up to 11 years. This means children will have the choice to stay at St. John's when they get to year 3, rather than leave us as they have to now. The Governing Body would like this to start in September 2022.


Kirklees Council are now in receipt of all responses.


UPDATE 13th August 2021

The Governing Body of St. John's C.E. (C) Infant School have submitted an appeal to The Office of the Schools' Adjudicator. 


We will update you when we have further information


UPDATE 28th July 2021

Kirklees Cabinet met on Tuesday 27th July 2021 to discuss our statutory proposal and did NOT support our proposal to become a through school on this occasion.

Our next step is to exercise our right of appeal to the Schools’ Adjudicator. We will keep you updated with further information as we receive it.


UPDATE 20th July 2021

Kirklees Cabinet meet on Tuesday 27th July at 3pm to consider our proposal. Further updates will be posted when the outcome has been published.


UPDATE 28th June 2021

The Governing Body have met with the Schools Organisation and Advisory Group who are now preparing a report for Kirklees Cabinet's end of July meeting.
