Whole School


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: 


Embracing Christian values of kindness, love and joy, from our beautiful location on the Malvern Hills, we nurture our children as unique individuals, celebrating their talents, gifts and differences.

Through a wide and creative curriculum, we encourage them to grow academically, emotionally and spiritually, and so enabling all our children to flourish in life.


‘You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world…now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand – shine!’ Matthew 5:14


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.



Here at St James' we define spirituality as; cherishing and nurturing our souls, connecting the world around us by measuring the moments which take our breath away and reveal who we are. 


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

Our children have now made pictures to illustrate each of the bible stories linked to our school values

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.



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.
