Here at St.James', we have a clear Mission Statement that underpins all of our work.
We strive to deliver high educational standards, a superb level of care, a strong but sensible moral outlook, an understanding of the modern world and a strong sense of community values echoed by our Christian Ethos : ‘Living the Fruit of The Spirit’ (Galatians 5:22). Above all, we are 'Committed to Excellence' in all that we do.
St.James' is a happy, friendly, safe and encouraging place where everyone feels welcome and valued; a place where achievement is expected and is celebrated; a place where all members of the school community care about each other and are kind to each other; a place where behaviour is good and where success of all kinds is noticed so we can take pride in all the work we are doing.
We are very lucky to have an extremely dedicated and supportive staff who work very hard to provide the best opportunities for all our pupils in a safe and happy school environment. We aim to build the skills, knowledge and positive attitudes necessary to help all our pupils become responsible, respectful and tolerant citizens of the future.
The positive support of our parents and the wider community is very important to us all and we maintain an open and welcoming environment where we can work in partnership for the benefit of our pupils.
This website is an important link in the way we communicate all that we do here at St.James'. It provides us with a wonderful opportunity to share and celebrate the life and work of our pupils. This can also be seen via our social media networks.
If you have any suggestions, comments or questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
