School Uniform

  • The school tracksuit consists of plain navy bottoms, white polo shirt and a grey jumper with the school name (available from Jako Sports) and black or white runners.
  • High tops and converse style shoes are not allowed, as they have poor grip and are unsafe on the tarmac in the playground.
  • The only jewellery allowed to be worn in school is a watch.
  • Earrings are not allowed to be worn during school time.
  • Please put your child’s/children’s name on jumpers, tracksuit tops and coats.

Healthy Eating

  • Here at St John’s N.S. we encourage healthy eating.
  • Sandwiches, fruit, yogurts, vegetables and salads are examples of the nutritious foods we encourage.
  • Crisps, fizzy drinks or sweets are not allowed for lunch.
  • The school operates a milk scheme and you might like your child to participate in this.
  • To further reduce our landfill waste, we would encourage all pupils to use a re-usable drinks bottle and to bring all lunch waste home.

One Way Traffic System

  • A one way traffic system operates for the dropping off/collecting times at school. The traffic drives down by the front of the school and around and out by Woodbrook Heights.
  • We wish to thank parents for their co-operation with this system and we earnestly request your continued co-operation with it.
