About St James Church of England First School

We are a vibrant and forward-thinking school with highly talented staff who are committed to achieving the very best outcomes for our children. We work together closely to achieve the best possible outcomes for our children and support each other to ensure we all perform to the best of our abilities.

In 1974, following extension and modernisation of the original building, the four schools in Gaunts Common, Holt, Horton and Hinton Martell were merged to form St James’ CE VC First School. We have recently joined the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust and have a strong Christian ethos and a deeply embedded vision for our children. Our links with local churches and parishioners are well established and we enjoy regular visits from members across the parish.

We are a Church of England school serving children from Reception to Year 4. We are over- subscribed with 125 children on role and a Pupil Admission Number of 23. We have four mixed age classes: R/Y1, Y1/Y2, Y2/Y3 and Y3/Y4. At the end of Year 4 the majority of children transfer to St Michael’s Middle School in Colehill.

The school has undergone extensive refurbishment in the last ten years and has four, modern and well-resourced classrooms which surround a central hall used for a range of activities including PE, Collective Worship and lunches. We also have a cosy corner, meeting room and nurture nook, used for many things including break out learning and well-being activities. The playgrounds and playing fields are extensive, with two football pitches, a trim trail, an all-weather calm zone and two hard core playing areas. Other features of the grounds include a pond and wildlife area, a beech maze, Peace Garden, stage, tyre park, musical garden and Fitness Garden plus a variety of trees and a car park.

A private pre-school operates in a separate building in the front playground and close liaison exists between this and the school. The Nursery staff provide our wrap-around care.
The staffing structure comprises an Executive Headteacher; a Head of School, three full time Teachers; one part time Teacher, a Senior Teaching Assistant and additional Teaching Assistants with varying hours across the school. Our office team comprises a part-time Support Services Manager and part-time admin support and your role will add to this strong team.

We have really strong links with our local community. The Parents and Friends Association provides strong support for all aspects of school life. The School gives and receives support in our local community and participates in various special occasions and events including supporting charities and linking with local care homes. Our governing body is small but strong and comprises of a pro-active and committed volunteers with a range of backgrounds.
Our premises are light, modern and well maintained and our grounds are extensive and idyllic. You would be joining a strong, welcoming and talented staff team which is committed to putting the children at the heart of all we do.

We recognise and actively promote the benefits of a diverse workforce and are committed to treating all employees with dignity and respect regardless of race, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief. We therefore welcome applications from all sections of the community.
