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.


Do Something Different Day

Once a term at St James Primary, we like to do something a little bit different!

Autumn term

This term we have spent the day doing something different to celebrate Black History Month.  We have been creating paintings inspired by people such as Faith Ringold who wrote Tar Beach and making our own African masks.  We’ve been learning about inspiring figures in our history such as Rosa Parks and Jessie Owen.  We’ve been creating artwork inspired by Alma Thomas and performing Martin Luther King’s ‘I  have a dream’ speech.  And we’ve been learning African songs and performing African dances.  It has been a fantastic day of creativity, fun and learning.
