Dear Parents,

We are delighted that you have accepted Penistone St John’s Primary School for your child.  We recognise that  transition into school is a big step for both you and your child.  

We just wanted to reassure you and let you know that we are here to support you in the run-up to starting and we are very excited to meet you.

Please click on the videos below to go on a tour of our classes, and meet our staff.

We hope you enjoy meeting our Early Years' Team and listening to the stories.
