The children, parents and staff at St James' Junior School are amazing and all strive to ensure our school is a fantastic place full of opportunities. We nurture independent lifelong learners by developing children’s natural curiosity and creativity believing it’s important to make every day of a child’s education a special and memorable one. The children are at the heart of every decision we make and we do our utmost to ensure that they are happy and confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and in the future. As a result, every day at St James' is unique and leads our pupils to achieving truly remarkable things.
We celebrate our diversity and are proud of our many cultures whilst growing together as one big family under the guidance of God’s love. As a church school, we firmly believe in the Christian values that underpin everything we do to ensure that Every Child has Every Chance, Every Day.
Our School rejoices in its foundation as a Church of England school. The Christian ethos is both implicit and explicit in our practice, policies and procedures. Our Christian distinctiveness is evident everywhere; from the Bible verses displayed throughout the school, and the reflection areas, to the children’s exemplary behaviour. Our vision 'Every Child, Every Chance, Every Day' was created around Proverbs 22:6 'Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.' which encourages children to develop teamwork, resilience, determination and enthusiasm, all under the guidance of God. Our school values are based on the teachings of the Bible and are theological and inclusive. They permeate the children’s whole experience and are at the heart of our curriculum and school life in order for them to thrive in the wider world.
We believe that the relationships we develop with our children and their families enables us to create a warm and welcoming ethos which is so evident throughout our school. We encourage our children to GROW through our core values; Grateful, Respectful, Outstanding and Welcoming.
