About us

Welcome to St James CE Primary School!

'For the good of all' 1 Corinthians 12

Learning together with courage & kindness

Our Christian values of community, courage and kindness are key to the St. James family, a family that provides security and nurture, so that all can learn. We celebrate each other's successes and provide support and comfort through times of challenge, enabling all to thrive and flourish. 

We are stronger with all parts of our community working together - pupils, staff, parents, governors, the Vale Academy Trust, our surrounding villages, St. James Church and the wider community. This helps us to work 'for the good of all' and is an essential part of who we are.

Just as Jesus had his team of friends around him, including St. James, we are creating a school family that supports and motivates all to be the best they can be, 'for the good of all'.

We follow an ambitious and enriched curriculum that we have carefully designed to develop children's sense of curiosity, empathy and adventure, preparing children to go out into the world as life-long-learners, resilient risk-takers and courageous global citizens.

Our vision is that all our children leave year 6 being the best they can be for the good of all and we are therefore the first choice school in the local area.
