CBC St John’s is home to the Saints In Training, a family-orientated Junior School that prioritises offering high-quality education and care for children from Grades R to 6. As one of the leading primary schools Parklands has to offer, we pride ourselves on creating a sense of family throughout our Junior School and maintaining a “home away from home” based on the warm and caring attitudes of our teachers and staff. Our policy aims to treat all CBC family members (children, parents, and staff) with dignity, kindness, compassion, and respect.
We have developed a reputation for assisting students who learn differently and, with the recommendations from the relevant professionals, shape our educational experience to afford each child the opportunity to meet their potential. As one of the most successful Table View primary schools, we give the children who require them various concessions such as scribes, readers, spelling concessions and time concessions to ensure that each individual’s needs are accommodated.
We believe in positive reinforcement in the foundation phase. Each of our educators makes use of her own reward system. We also make use of a “sunshine voucher” system to reward good behaviour further.
Our restorative justice approach looks to restore relationships that have broken down due to inappropriate behaviour. This process allows children the opportunity to talk face-to-face to one another and make amends for the hurt they may have caused. They are encouraged to think of ways to make amends and restore calm and happiness. This approach helps our students take responsibility for their behaviour and teaches them that effective communication is a peaceful, positive method of resolution.
We lead young minds through dedicated holistic teaching.
