We're Collecting Aldi's Kit For Schools stickers

Dear parents/carers, 

This term we’re collecting Team GB stickers with Aldi’s Kit for Schools for the chance to be one of 20 primary schools to win £20,000 to build a health legacy at our school!  

From 6 September–3 November, when you spend £30 or more in any Aldi store, you’ll receive a special Team GB sticker – if our school works together to collect 300 stickers, we will automatically receive an exclusive school sports kit, in addition to entry into the £20,000 prize draw!  

Please send any stickers you receive into school with your children, or bring them in yourself to the office and we will add them to our Aldi’s Kit for Schools sticker poster. 

The Aldi’s Kit for Schools campaign supports the aims of Get Set to Eat Fresh, Aldi and Team GB’s award-winning school’s programme, which has already beaten its target to reach 1.2 million young people in the UK by 2020, reaching over 1.5 million young people since its inception. 

We hope everyone will enjoy collecting Team GB stickers and exploring healthy eating this term. Remember, Aldi’s Kit for Schools Team GB stickers are available until 3 November when shopping in any Aldi store. We will keep everyone up to date with how many stickers we have collected, and how many we have to go! 

If you want to find out more about Aldi’s Kit for Schools you can visit getseteatfresh.co.uk/kitforschools, or get in touch with the school for more information on our plans.   

Thank you so much for your support on this project – we look forward to receiving any stickers you collect!                                                                                                      

Kind Regards, 

Miss S Price

New Water Bottles Information

Dear Parents, 

We hope you have enjoyed the Summer break and that your child is enjoying their first few days back at the Academy.  

We are committed to protecting our environment, and reducing our plastic waste, and with this in mind we are excited to announce that as of today we now have St Johns Primary Academy Branded Reusable Water Bottles which will normally retail at £3 however until Christmas these can be purchased for the introductory price of £2.50 

These water bottles can be refilled daily from our water dispensers located throughout the Academy and all children will be encouraged to wash these out before refilling. These new bottles will not only reduce the amount of waste from single use plastic bottles but also ensure your child continues to stay hydrated, which aids with concentration. Children at the Academy are encouraged to regularly drink water throughout the day and the new reusable bottles have space to write your child names ensuring that children are easily able to locate their own bottle.  

To purchase a water bottle please make payment via SIMSPay and a bottle will be available for collection within 24 hours, alternatively please pop to the Academy office for a Barcode to make payment at the Post Office or via Paypoint once payment has been received a bottle will be made available for collection from the office.  

Parents can of course still provide their child with their own water bottle, we do however ask that these are a clear bottle, in standard size to fit into our water bottle carriers, and have a sports cap and not a screw top.  

With the new bottles now available, our aim is to remove the sale of single use water bottles over the coming months and we hope that you will support us in our aim to remove these from the Academy. 

Yours Sincerely 


Miss S Price


Class of 2019

This afternoon the Year 6’s held their last assembly with us all being thoroughly entertained and making us feel emotional. Below are some images from the assembly along with one of the videos that was shown.


Early Years Sports Day 2019

After rearranging the early years sports day to Tuesday 2nd July, the weather was much kinder to us and the Nursery and Reception classes enjoyed an afternoon full of fun. Find below a selection of images from the afternoon.

Years 1, 2 & 3 Sports Day 2019

We managed to rearrange the Years 1,2 & 3 Sports Day to Tuesday 9th July. The Year 1 pupils were especially excited as it was their first opportunity to take part in the older years format of our Sports Day, taking part in events like the sprint, obstacle course plus much more.

Here are some images and highlights video from the day.

Mark and @Montydogge visit us

On Wednesday 19th June we had a special visit from author Mark Sanders and his dog Monty. Mark read one of his wonderful stories to the children in assembly which they thoroughly enjoyed. All Mark's stories feature Monty the dog so we were so glad he could come along and visit too. After the assembly, Mark and Monty went to visit all the younger children in their classes to answer any questions, although Monty did steal the show!

The children all wanted to give Monty a stroke and he was more than happy to let them. 

Years 4, 5 & 6 Sports Day 2019

On Tuesday 18th June, the weather was kind enough to fit in this years Sports Day for Years 4, 5 & 6. The competition was fierce with only a few points separating the teams resulting in the Red team winning overall. Well done to everyone taking part and a special thanks to the Parents who took part in the Tug of War!

Highlights video will be released soon!
