Welcome to Newland St John’s 

I am delighted to welcome you to our academy. It is a very special and safe place where we live, learn and grow together in the love of God.

Our vision is that all children should be able to flourish and live life in all its fullness (John 10:10). We provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum that has a strong focus on developing knowledge and skills, through exciting and stimulating learning themes and contexts.  Our dedicated staff  and governor team provides a  learning environment where children are cared for, have their talents nurtured, and develop both academically and personally.

We have a close relationship with our parish church, St John Newland, and are part of Hope Sentamu Learning Trust, a family of academies working together to improve outcomes for children, under the oversight of the Diocese of York Educational Trust.

I hope you enjoy looking at our website and learning more about us.

Welcome from the Executive Principal

I am delighted to welcome you to Newland St John’s Church of England Academy website.

I believe that every child deserves an inspiring education in a safe, stimulating and engaging environment, which encourages independent reflection. Every child matters, every moment of every day.

At Newland St John’s, we deliver a creative curriculum which ignites children’s interest in the world around them, both locally and world-wide, and is underpinned with thorough assessment so we know exactly how your child is progressing and what the next steps of their learning should be. Behaviour at Newland St John’s is outstanding and the warm, caring atmosphere in the school is frequently commented upon by visitors.

We have a great team of staff and governors here and we are all very proud of our school, the children and their achievements. Each and every member of staff and governor has an important part to play and is here because they want to make a difference. We believe every child should be valued and celebrated as an individual, as each and every one of us has something to offer and should never be afraid to fail, because that is when we learn the most.

Working closely with and supporting the local community is of great importance to us all at Newland St John’s. We are a church school and Christian Values lie at the heart of what we do. We are all role models and respect for others is a fundamental life skill.  We are supplying our children with skills for life and not just for secondary school and I am passionate about making a difference.  In years to come I want our children to look back on their time at Newland St John’s and be proud of their foundations.

We look forward to a successful partnership with you, and are confident that your child’s years at this school will be both happy and fulfilling.

Mrs Amanda Devaney | Executive Principal
