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.


Please note we will inform you of any INSET day as soon as it is confirmed and try to give you as much notice as possible.
