Welcome to St. James’ CE Primary Academy!

Learning as a family in Jesus, through Love, Hope and Forgiveness.

Matthew 19:26 – “with God all things are possible.”

The St. James’ family is a welcoming, thriving, innovative community; loving and inspiring, forgiving and challenging.  Together we can, and will, enrich the world!

Our Purpose is to provide an engaging, relevant education within a Christian environment, where everyone flourishes academically, socially, physically, morally, emotionally and spiritually.

At the heart of everything we do are the children.  The seven years they spend with us is an extremely precious time of enormous growth and change.  We seek to make every opportunity a learning experience and squeeze the value out of every inch of every day.  You will see from much of the content of this website how our vision aspires to let every child flourish in a Christian environment surrounded by love, encouraged by hope and forgiven for the mistakes we make.

Please enjoy looking around the website, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any further questions.

Our Christian Values flow through everything we do, they are Love, Hope and Forgiveness. In turn, we are Ready, Respectful and Safe, which helps us with our learning behaviours.

Mr Brown,

Interim Headteacher
