St James CE First School is a member of the Diocese of Salisbury Academy Trust. We work together in a dynamic and exciting partnership, providing many opportunities for collaborative professional learning, and guidance on our journey. I am sure that, like me, you will find this a very positive relationship. Within the Trust, we work closely with three other local schools, as part of the Priory Hub - Wimborne St Giles CE First School, Trinity CE First School and Cranborne CE First School.

Our school vision statement: 'Believe and Achieve' is central to everything we do and we are really proud of the sense of community and the 'family atmosphere' that we have cultivated in which everybody is given the opportunity to flourish.

Through our Core Christian values of Love, Hope and Truth, we aim to transform our own lives and the lives of everybody within the school - and beyond!

We believe that success is all down to high expectations and aspirations for every child and we aim for excellence in everything we do. School should be a joyful experience for all children; they only have one shot at primary education and the greatest responsibility we have is to get it right for them at the very beginning.
