Canon Johnson C of E Primary School

Church Links and Ethos Group 



For the Summer 2019 term, the Ethos Group have joined with the School Council to develop the ethos of the school in several ways. Here are the areas that they will be working on this term.

GLOBAL NEIGHBOURS AWARD- Working with Parochial and St James’ CE Primary School, we are applying for the Global Neighbours Award led by Christian Aid. During the Summer term we will be leading assemblies and discussing world issues with the school councils of other schools. Please come and read this page later in the summer term when we will have more to tell you.



ROAD SAFETY FOCUS- Outside our school can be very dangerous place and over half the pupils in school have had near accidents trying to cross the road. With the help of parents and teachers we are going to be encouraging people to park on the far side of road away from the school so that it is safer for children to cross the road. We will be patrolling outside the schools gates during the morning and after school to ask parents to help keep outside our school safe. Please help us by either walking into school or parking further away so that it is safer for us all.


SCHOOL TIDINESS- With Mr Bidgood we have been looking at ways we can make the school look nicer for visitors and the local community. We have looked around the school and have decided that we can work together to make the school a better place. During the summer term we will be clearing the front areas and planting new plants in the flower beds, building benches for parents to sit on outside Year 3 and 4 and painting the walls and flower boxes outside the front of the school.


VIRTUES AND VALUES- We have been making posters for our new virtues and values. These have been copied and put up around school to remind everyone of our virtues. We will be asking children what we could do to make sure people remember them.
