Our School


Peasedown St John Primary School is a large, lively, vibrant school for children aged 2 - 11 years. Our aim is to "achieve excellence for ourselves and others" and this permeates through all that we do.

Children who come to our school receive good teaching and make good progress, but there is much more to it. We have a wide range of opportunities for children to develop their musical, sporting and language abilities as well as many other irresistible learning experiences - all designed to make children enjoy their primary school years within an ethos where every child can flourish.

During their time with us, children are nurtured as individuals.  We work hard to develop in them lifelong learning skills and behaviours, as well as self-respect and respect for others. The best way to judge our success in achieving this is by visiting the school and meeting the children.

The school is part of the Dragonfly Education Trust, which we joined in April 2016.  Our current partners in the Trust are Writhlington secondary school and the Mendip Studio School.  This not only supports the day-to-day running of our school; it is an exciting opportunity to develop new ways of meeting the needs of all our children across the primary and secondary phases in our area.
