Welcome to St James C of E Primary School.

We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.

Our Vision & Ethos

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils for the future.

Our Vision and Mission Statement

Opening doors to our future.

“I know all the things you do, and I have opened a door for you that no one can close.”   Revelation 3:8

Our aim is that the children who attend our school leave us fully prepared as resilient, compassionate, empathetic, global citizens, who understand the challenges of a modern world and as Christians, what is needed to thrive within it.  We work tirelessly to fulfil our pupil’s full potential to be successful, aspirational adults, that can have an impact on both their local community and the global one.  Our Christian values (Respect, Responsibility, Community, Friendship, Forgiveness and Courage) and concept-based curriculum underpin this aim and together we are able to open doors of opportunity for each and every child’s future.

Our Christian Values

  • RESPECT – we value everyone
  • RESPONSIBILITY – we take responsibility for our actions
  • COMMUNITY – we are all together
  • FRIENDSHIP – we all get on together
  • FORGIVENESS – we give and receive forgiveness
  • COURAGE – we have courage at all times
