It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the St John the Baptist C of E Primary School website. As you browse our website, my hope is you learn about our approach to education and become acquainted with what makes our school such a special place.
In September 2016, primary schools in Hackney were invited to apply to take part in piloting a new scheme called “School Streets”, where the road outside the school is temporarily closed to traffic during school opening and closing times. Thirteen schools, including St John the Baptist, expressed their interest in participating and we were selected to take part. We believe that School Streets offers the opportunity to address the ongoing road safety issues that the school has been experiencing at school opening and closing times.
As a Church of England school, we have Christian teaching built into our curriculum and assemblies. Our aim is to help children to achieve a knowledge and understanding of religious insights, beliefs and practices, so that they are able to continue in, or come to, their own beliefs and respect the right of other people to hold beliefs different from their own.
St. John the Baptist is one of eight schools within the Primary Advantage Federation which is overseen by Executive Head Sian Davies. Toni Mason, our Headteacher is supported by a strong Senior Leadership Team. The Senior Team acts as the point of contact for parents, children and staff.
