Living The School Values at St John's!


Headteacher Mark Richards at St John’s School, Dorking, firmly believes that the impressive turn around in fortunes at this community-based school is all due to his unshakable belief that the six very clear School Values have to be ‘lived’ all day, every day, by everyone. Every member of the staff is trained to adopt a consistent nurturing approach, which really does deliver results! His determination to ensure that all young children get the best possible individual support to thrive in an inclusive educational environment, led to a very close working relationship with Dorking Nursery School and Children’s Centre, with Heads, Governors and Advisors all working across schools to ensure appropriate help and seamless transitions for all children. A wonderful example of teamwork, and even a team photo (kindly taken by Louise)!
