We are delighted to announce that St. John's has been recognised as a Gold standard school in the Sainsbury's School Games Mark for 2013-2014. 

The Sainsbury's School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. There are bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark and we have worked very hard to achieve the highest level possible.

The school has proved to excel at delivering high quality P.E, have good links with community clubs and raise standards of P.E by offering a range of sporting opportunities through the below levels of competition: 

Intra-school (Level 1) - sporting competition for all students in school through intra-school competition e.g. house competitions and sports day
Inter-school (Level 2) - individuals and teams are selected to represent their schools in local inter-school competitions e.g. the range of dporting events we offer within the Beacon cluster of primary school
Sainsbury's School Games Festivals (Level 3) – the county/area will stage multi-sport Sainsbury's School Games Festivals as a culmination of year-round school sport competition e.g. the wealden area events where we have represented Beacon (Crowborough) against other wealden areas.

 Last year we achieved the bronze award and are delighted to have achieved gold this year. 

Thank you to all of the staff, children, parents and families for their continued commitment and enthusiasm in PE and Sport.  

The Sainsbury's School Games is based around 6 key values. 

We encourage our children to follow these values, not only in sport, but in everything they do:


With others and with yourself. Have the courage to do the right thing. Be truthful and promote fairness in every situation.



Treat everyone equally, support each other’s and work together to have fun and achieve. Celebrate each others’ success. Be a good friend and a positive team player in school, sport and life.


Treating others politelyand with understanding. Accepting life’s ‘ups and downs’ with grace. Respect everyday, in everything you do and for everyone around you.

Self belief

You’ve got to believe to achieve. Have the self belief and confidence to succeed and reach your personal best.


Giving it 100%, putting your heart and soul into whatever you are doing and never giving up. Care about what you do and the people around you, and approach each opportunity with enthusiasm and positivity.


Keep going no matter what. Determination is about the journey you go on to push yourself and achieve your dreams. Have the mental strength and the self discipline to overcome obstacles, commit to your goals and keep working every day to become the very best you can be. Don’t hold back!
