St James’ Primary is a successful school that is at the heart of its community. There are strong links with the parish church and these enhance the spiritual and moral development of the people we serve.
At St James’ we are committed to providing a high standard of Catholic education for all pupils in a friendly and welcoming environment. We recognise that every child has their own, unique set of gifts and talents and ensure that there are opportunities for these to be developed. The school teaches children that we share values common to all faiths, namely love and respect for one another, Peace, Justice and belief in Equality. We teach our children about other faiths, in order to foster respect and tolerance of those with other faiths and beliefs.
We provide an exciting curriculum that prepares children to become active members of society. We aim to inspire all of our pupils, to rise to the challenges that will enable them to develop the skills and personal qualities they need, in order to embrace the future with confidence. St James’ has consistently high standards of achievement. This high achievement is a result of outstanding teaching and learning, hard work from the pupils and support from parents. (more…)
