WELCOME TO

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.

Home School Agreement

At St James, we recognise that children learn best when a purposeful partnership exists between home and school. Our Home School Agreement sets out responsibilities to ensure our children reach their full potential.

 

We ask parents to try to

  • See that your child goes to school regularly, on time and in correct school uniform
  • Let the school know about any problems that might affect our child’s work or behaviour
  • Support the school’s policy and guidelines on behaviour
  • Take responsibility for the behaviour of your children
  • Support your child in homework and other opportunities for home learning
  • Attend parents’ evenings and discussions about our child’s progress
  • Get involved as much as you can with your child’s life at school.

As the school, we will try to

  • Promote a knowledge and love of God and the teachings of Jesus
  • Encourage your children to do their best at all times
  • Inform you of your child’s progress through regular meetings and an annual report
  • Keep you informed about school activities through regular newsletters, notices and the website
  • Let you know about any concerns or problems that affect your child’s work or behaviour
  • Set, mark and monitor homework and provide feedback to children
  • Contact you if there is a problem about illness, injury, punctuality, attendance or uniform
  • Listen to your concerns about any aspect of school life
  • Deal with any complaints sensitively and within the framework of the school’s complaints procedure.

For our older children (KS2), we think it’s important that they have a responsibility for their behaviours and so we ask them to try

  • To be polite and helpful at all times
  • To help take care of their school
  • To do their class work and homework to the best of their ability
  • To come to school looking smart in my school uniform
  • To keep the class rules
