Welcome to St. James’ CE Primary School – a truly special place where every child is valued, nurtured, challenged and celebrated.
We believe that every child should have the opportunity to fulfil their potential and achieve to the best possible standards, giving them a strong foundation for the future. We provide an exciting curriculum, which is carefully designed to foster a love of learning and effectively prepare children for life in an ever-changing world. We aim to inspire, challenge and motivate our children to want to make a difference. we want our children to be shining lights on the hillside;
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
Our geographical location provides such wonderful opportunities for learning outside the classroom. For us, this is incredibly important, as it enables our children to develop vital learning skills such as resilience, resourcefulness, responsibility and risk-taking, as well as encouraging collaboration.
Our motto ‘Learning Together: Caring Together: Flourishing Together’ is very much alive and our Christian values underpin all that we do. Here at St. James’ we are one big family, where the approach is supportive and respectful. We really are very proud of the way everyone cares for one another.
I hope this website gives you a flavour of what we can offer here at St James'. If you would like to find out more about our school, please do come along and see for yourself. We would be very happy to welcome you!
