Alison Flynn

Welcome to St John's Meads Church of England Primary School. I am the Executive Head of St John's Meads CE Primary and East Hoathly CE Primary and Mr Nathan Cline is the Acting Headteacher of St John's Meads.

It is our aim to make starting school an exciting experience for the children whether it is their first time at school or they are joining us from other schools. St John's Meads has a strong team of highly committed and professional teachers and teaching assistants. They work closely together to ensure continuity in the teaching programme throughout the school. In November 2011 St John's Meads was awarded a ‘Good’ Ofsted Report with many ‘Outstanding’ features and in January 2012 an ‘Outstanding’ Church Inspection Report.


We are now into our second year of our partnership with East Hoathly and have seen the clear benefits for the children of both schools. Through the sharing and development of staff expertise we have used different and innovative ways of working to raise the aspirations of the children, staff, parents and governors.

We take our Church of England status as being essential to every element of our school life. Our vision is that we work as a happy community where the learning environment is exciting and where every child, no matter what their need, is valued, included and encouraged to achieve their best and gain confidence as an independent and well-rounded member of the school community.
