Intent

Intent Statement

At St James our intention is for all pupils to be filled with curiosity about themselves and the world around them. We encourage them to ask big questions, some of which they will not answer straight away. They will develop a thirst for knowledge in a supportive environment where
mistakes can be celebrated and become learning opportunities. We recognise the importance of an individual’s spiritual development that allows all pupils at St James to flourish.

Our pupils will leave us with a knowledge about how to make the right choices for themselves, to enable them to lead healthy and happy lifestyles both physically and mentally.

All children are encouraged to reach their full potential through a wide range of opportunities and activities both academic and throughout the wider curriculum. Being an active member of our school and the wider community is important as we send our children on the next stage of education.

Our core Christian values underpin life at St James.

TRUST              RESPECT            PERSEVERANCE

At the heart of what we do is a curriculum which places curiosity, independent learning and self discovery at the heart of how we teach. While fulfilling the National Curriculum, the school curriculum also aims to promote the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of pupils, beginning to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of life.
