At MSJ we value the whole child and aim to nurture their spiritual, cognitive, emotional and physical sides to be the Blossoming-BEST they can be!

The Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives:
love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.
Galatians 5:22-23 (NLT)


On behalf of the pupils, staff and directors, may I extend a warm welcome to Moordown St. John's Church of England Primary School.

I hope you find our website interesting, informative and that it begins to give you a taste of life at our school.  We aim for every child to reach their full potential and to leave Moordown St. John’s equipped as life-long learners eager to enjoy life, serve others and make a positive contribution to our world.

Our Vision

As well as being a thriving, successful and inclusive school, we are a Church of England Primary School and exist to further the work of Christ through high quality relationships, teaching and learning. This fundamental truth is the essence of all that we are and all that we do.

We believe that all pupils, staff, parents and governors are part of a community of learning, where standards and expectations are high and there is a real purpose in being part of the family of Christ.
