Welcome to Finchingfield St John the Baptist Primary Academy & Nursery

Living life in its fullness(John 10:10)

Growing healthy bodies, loving hearts and inquisitive minds.

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to our school website. Finchingfield St John the Baptist Church of England Primary Academy is part of the Canonium Learning Trust, which is a family of schools united by a shared vision to provide every child with the very best possible education.

A great education demands an ambitious curriculum, high expectations and highly skilled nurturing adults who believe in children and what they can achieve in the right environment. We are also in a privileged position to offer small class sizes enabling us to carefully tailor the support each child needs through high quality interactions between each child and the adults who work with them.

Our aim is very every child regardless of their starting points to be the best versions of themselves, enjoy school and grow loving hearts, healthy bodies and inquisitive minds. We try to inspire wisdom, a thirst for knowledge, critical thinking, strong communication, a sense of community and belonging through exciting learning opportunities and experiences.

Our approach is influenced by the Church of England’s vision to educate for ‘life in all its fullness‘ (John 10:10). This requires a focus not only the academic and intellectual aspects of a child, but the spiritual, physical, emotional, moral and social development of our children so that every child has the opportunity to leave our academy as knowledgeable, thoughtful and articulate individuals equipped with the knowledge, understanding and skills to thrive in our evolving world and society.

By working together with our community, we ensure our pupils are supported, challenged and nurtured so that they view the world with an open mind, a willingness to question and develop the ability to make right choices, so that they are prepared for secondary school and beyond.

We would be delighted to welcome you and look forward to sharing what makes our school a special place to learn because we are proud of our children and school community.

Mr Hawrylak and Mrs Metson 
Executive Headteacher and Head of School
