School Values, Vision and Aim



School Vision


Faith: “So God created man in His own image” (Genesis 1:26-27)  

At St James’s C.E. Primary School, we believe that every child is made in the image of God; inherently valuable and unique among God’s creations.  We are an inclusive and welcoming family who celebrate each other’s achievements.  Our Christian Values are at the heart of all that we do; nurturing a sense of belonging and shared identity.  

Friendship: “Follow me and I will make you fishers of people.” (Luke 5:10)

It is our vision that all of our pupils will have courage and belief in themselves, to follow their dreams. We will ensure that all children know, experience and understand the love of Jesus Christ; supporting children on their journey of learning, faith and spirituality.  Through our established, local and global links, children learn to be responsible and respected citizens.

Fulfilment: “Take courage.  It is I.  Do not be afraid.”(Matthew 14:27) 

In a safe and nurturing environment, we support each child to reach their full, God given potential.  High aspirations are set so that every child has every opportunity to fulfil their dreams.  We will endeavour to instil a love of learning in our pupils, preparing them for the next phase of their lives and enable them to prosper.


With our Christian distinctiveness at the heart of all we do, we aim to provide the highest quality education for all.  We strive to equip each child with the skills and values they require to fulfil their God given potential.
