St James C of E Primary School

Welcome to our school website which I hope you will find both informative and a reflection of what is happening here at St. James School. We are a church school and our Christian values underpin a lot of our work and aspirations both for the children and the whole school community.


Our Ethos

Our school is a church school where our Christian values underpin much of our work and aspirations both for the children and the whole school community. 

Our standards of work and behaviour are high and we seek to nurture children socially, emotionally, spiritually and academically.  We’re not complacent and try to lead the way for our children and listen and reflect on the effectiveness of what we do and how we do it.  We strive to improve our performance and encourage children to do the same.

The world of education is changing significantly and children need to be equipped to develop key, relevant life skills.  We welcome discussion and agreement with parents about how to assist our children and know that effective school parent partnerships are crucial for their progress and well being.

Our governors, teachers and support staff are committed and capable in their work and understand their role as role models in the school community.  We cherish the school community that binds staff, children, families and church closely together.  With this as our strong base we seek to get the very best for all our children.
