We are appealing for donations for a Christmas Hamper, which will be raffled at our Christmas Concert, on Wednesday 19th December. Pupils are asked to take their donations (NO fresh produce, thank you!), to U20 between now and 17th December.
The raffle is to raise funds for St Giles Hospice, Whittington.
Thank you in advance, for your support.
Our new Scholastic Book Club is up and running!
Go to http://schools.scholastic.co.uk/john-taylor to browse the latest books and order online. For every £1 you spend on this month’s Book Club, our school will earn 25p in Scholastic Rewards.
Please place your order online by December 14th, 2018.
We recommend that all parents should read this helpful guide on 'How to Talk to your Teen about Instagram'.
Due to an increase in misplaced and mistakenly identified PE bags (often of the same design), may we take this opportunity to remind parents that all PE kit and PE bags should be clearly marked with the student's name. Thank you.
We are pleased to now be able to offer the new Go4Schools app. This should make use of the system far easier, particuarly now that homework can be viewed through it. At present you can only see information regarding student timetables, homework and attendance although other information is under development.
For more information, including how to download the app, please access the flyer below:
There has been a noticeable increase in the amount of forgotten equipment being brought into reception to be taken to children. It is not really manageable for our reception staff to be able to deal with this and so could we please ask that you are extra vigilant with supporting your children to remember all of the equipment that they need for each day. Thank you.

School Christmas Jumper Day
On Friday, December 14th, we will be holding our annual Christmas Jumper Day. Pupils may wear a Christmas jumper for a donation of £1 and all proceeds will be shared between Save the Children and the Footprints Orphanage.
All Years - Supporting and Extending Home Learning

- Consolidating learning and revision
- Reflecting on learning in lessons
- Information processing
- Searching for information
- Extending learning outside of the classroom
