Welcome to our School

Welcome to the website for St John’s Church of England Primary School and Nursery, Midsomer Norton. At St. John's we recognise and develop the unique gifts and personal qualities of all.

Our mission is a simple one: 'Building A Firm Foundation for Learning and Caring'. We aim to provide an outstanding education which equips our children with the confidence to love learning, as well as the care and respect for others which will ensure their lifelong success.

The school is a happy, stimulating and caring place that allows each child to grow and develop in the knowledge of Christ, the world and themselves. Our Christian values support all of our work, and our committed team of staff and governors make sure that every child feels nurtured, respected and proud to belong to the community of St. John’s.

We hope that you find this website useful and that it helps you to find out about all of the opportunities we offer.

Please do not hesitate to make an appointment to see the school for yourself, or to work closely with us to help your child.
