Vision, Values and Ethos

As a church school we hold our Christian values at the heart of all that we do.

 

Our whole school vision for our children is as follows: 

We are a safe, happy and caring family where we support and enable one another to become confident and inspired life-long learners. We celebrate our differences and believe that we all have a part to play in our community and the wider world.

 

We achieve this by:

Promoting and integrating our Christian Caring Values taken from Galatians 5:22-23: ‘For the Fruit of the Spirit is Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness and Self Control.’  

We ensure that our caring values permeate all that we do here at St James'. We achieve this by;

  • Providing challenging and inspiring learning opportunities, both inside and outside the classroom, within a stimulating learning environment and uniquely beautiful setting.
  • Putting the individual needs of every learner at the heart of our curriculum.
  • Developing a sense of belonging and responsibility throughout the whole school community.
  • Valuing ourselves, others and all achievements.

 

 

Our school motto ‘Learning Together: Caring Together’ is truly at the heart of our work here at St. James’.

Collective Worship at St James'.

We hold collective worship each week in our school hall or in our church the parish of St James'. Each term we focus on a specific value.

Our Worship Committee also help to plan and lead collective worship in our school. They also collect views from the children too.

Our School Prayer

Dear God

Thank you for your love each day

We feel it in our work and play

Lead us with your guiding light

to help each other do what's right.

Amen

 

We also take the opportunity in collective worship for spontaneous prayer using the 5 Finger Prayer Prompt

Thumb - pray for those closest to us, family and friends

Pointer finger - pray for those who point us in the right direction

Middle finger - pray for those in power and leadership

Ring finger - pray for those who are weak or sick

Little finger - pray for ourselves

Here are just some of the things our parents say about our school:

  • A caring atmosphere between the children
  • We love the heart and soul of the school
  • A family approach throughout
  • A caring environment
  • A school which nurtures the children 
  • Good caring values
  • A real sense of community 

 

We are really proud of our school. The best way to understand our vision, values and ethos is to come along and see for yourself – you are very welcome.
