Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to the John Ball Primary School Website. At John Ball we offer you and your children a warm welcome to the school and hope that time spent with us is successful and enjoyable. Whether you are an existing member of the John Ball community, a prospective parent or just an interested visitor we hope you find the site interesting and informative.
Our web site is produced with the purpose of giving parents, carers and visitors information about our school. The information given is correct at the time of writing and is updated on a regular basis. Hopefully, it will answer some of your questions and help to explain the organisation and policies of the school. The web site is not intended as a substitute for personal contact with you and we look forward to seeing you in school whenever possible. We have an open morning each term for prospective parents (click here for details) – please contact the school to book a place. When you visit the school you will see for yourself what makes John Ball such a special school – our pupils!

We hope you enjoy your visit!
School Achievement, Results and Ofsted
I have great pleasure in enclosing the final report from our recent Ofsted inspection which I hope you will enjoy reading. As you will see we have achieved the highest possible grades in all areas and have been rated as an Outstanding school overall.
At John Ball School we believe in cross-curricular, topic-based learning. You can view the school curriculum map by visiting the ‘curriculum’ section of the website.
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
Each year we produce a prospectus detailing admission information for our school.
