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 


This year 4 boy only started having swimming lessons a few months ago. He is loving his lessons and he has already passed his level one and brought his certificate into school to share with us.  Well done.

These two boys both play football for Stocksbridge Park Steels. On Sunday, they played in a tournament against other teams in the area and came away cup winners.  Well done boys.

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.
