Wonderful Me

We have a 'Wonderful Me Board' in our school hall, on which we proudly display our pupil's personal achievements for all to see. If your child has been awarded any certificates, medals or trophies out of school that you would like to share, send your child with them to school and we will take a picture to go on our board. Alternatively, you can email your pictures to n.pearce@deepcar-st-johns.sheffield.sch.uk

A boy, in year 4, who wants to join the police force when he is older decided to write to the local station telling them about his hopes for the future.  The police responded to his letter and invited down to the station. He got to try on uniform, sit in a police car and see the cells.  We hope his dream comes true.

A very proud year 5, who has recently been awarded 2 trophies in dance, one in Ballroom and the other in Latin.  Fantastic. Keep up the hard work. 


This year 4 has just passed his level 5 in swimming. Well done from everyone at St John's. 

The Superkids awards hosted by the Sheffield Star have been going for over 2 decades. The event celebrates the brave, talented and inspirational youngsters in our city. The award night, which was on the 3rd of December, was a night full of proud parents, carers and teachers. Nine amazing children all received awards for being fearless and an inspiration to all. We are really proud to have one of our pupils amongst the candidates. Receiving a nomination

for fearless bravery following a very tough year due to illness. In March, she became very ill, really quickly and was diagnosed with a rare heart condition. She was taken to hospital with an extremely high heart rate and several attempts failed to reduce it. The doctors at the hospital saved her life. She now faces an operation when she is 13. Despite a few setbacks since then, she has always remained positive and never complains. She missed quite a bit of school but she took on extra work at home to catch up. She has now pledged to take part in the Glow Run at Endcliffe Park on the 18th December, to raise money for the hospital that saved her life. Her teachers say that she is a positive role model to everyone in the school. She got a special mention in Collective Worship. 

Both these boys play for Stocksbridge Park Steels. Recently the team played in a cup tournament and finished in 3rd place.

Well done boys and thank you for bringing your medals into school to share with us.

At Bluebell Wood, they believe that every family deserves to make magical memories with their child. They support and care for children, young adults and their families facing the toughest of times. In July, one of our year 3 girls took place in their annual Colour Dash to raise vital funds for this amazing place.

She is very proud of being part of this charity event, and as she is new to our school, she wanted to share her medal with her new class.

This young man in year 4, plays for Stocksbridge Park Steels and his team have just won the Don District under 9s Sheffield and District cup.

A big well done to one of our year 3 boys, who has just passed his level 3 ASA Learn to Swim award. He had to complete 9 different tasks to get his certificate, one of them was retrieving an object from the bottom of the pool. This is fantastic. Well done from everyone at St John's.

Sheffield Children’s University is part of a national initiative that encourages and celebrates children and young people who take part in learning activities outside of school hours. One credit is awarded for every hour of learning, adding up to awards such as certificates and badges. One of our year 4s has just been awarded her bronze certificate and brought it into school to share with us.

Well done from us all.

Can you swim a mile? This boy can, and has the certificate to prove it. This is an amazing achievement. He also passed his level 8 in swimming too.
