St John’s Catholic Primary School, Gravesend


At St John's Catholic Primary School we aim to provide our children with the best possible education and to develop the whole child during their time with us. The school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality. This is achieved through a happy, stimulating learning environment where excellent staff and resources ensure the children achieve their potential.

Our approach to learning and teaching is based on the teachings of Christ and “Growth Mind set”. We encourage our pupils and staff to be lifelong learners and to believe that they can achieve anything they put their mind and effort into.

At St Johns , we offer our pupils and staff the opportunity to be creative, innovative and adventurous in their approach to learning and teaching, using approaches and strategies that value effort, perseverance, co-operation, collaboration, problem solving and leadership skills within a happy and stimulating learning environment.


We also believe that a close and trusting relationship between home, school and Parish working together at all times to promote the aims and ethos of the school is important to the success of our pupils and the school.


Therefore, the staff and Governors recognise the essential involvement of the local community and extend a sincere welcome to all interested parties.
