Mrs Janice Peacock – Head Teacher
Tuesday 12th Dec – The school will be open as usual however it will be very icy. Please take care and be safe when travelling. The playground itself has a path cleared however the remaining snow will be icy and we would ask that for your own safety you avoid driving into the playground if you are dropping children off for Karibinui (certainly first thing in the morning). We will be talking to the children about how to stay safe in the snow but please send in extra socks and ensure your child definitely has a set of wellies with them. Many thanks Mrs Richards

Head Teacher’s Welcome
Welcome to St James CE Primary School.
We pride ourselves on our caring ethos and high standard of provision. We believe that every child deserves the best education and we aim to provide that within a rich and stimulating curriculum that supports and challenges. We value every child as an individual and celebrate their successes with them. Respect and tolerance for diversity is implicit in all we do and we aim for our children to become more confident and responsible as they move through the school. We want our children to be spirited individuals who embrace challenge, think creatively, value achievement and strive to be the best they can be.
We aim to provide our children with spiritual and moral guidance rooted in our Christian ethos. Our core Christian values are Respect, Perseverance and Trust and are central to our teaching.
We aim to provide an environment that is both stimulating and exciting, with all the resources needed to drive children’s imaginations, so that they can become motivated, lifelong learners.
Visits are always welcome if you would like to see more.
