School Values

Our Vision Statement:

Here at St James we believe that; everyone is loved, this will allow all to flourish and unlock their potential whilst promoting joy in lifelong learning. We will use our faith, Gods words and the light he gives to support this."



Our Aims:


At our school we expect everybody to:

  • Show respect

  • Work together

  • Try your best

  • Never give up

  • Show friendship

  • Be fair


Each half term, a value is introduced through Collective Worship on a three year rolling program. There are eighteen values altogether: Courage, Trust, Creativity, Justice, Forgiveness, Peace, Humility, Truth, Generosity, Thankfulness, Compassion, Hope, Friendship, Service, Reverence, Wisdom, Endurance and Creation.


We encourage the children at all times to reflect on how the values impact on the way they show and gain respect in their everyday lives. We believe these values enable the school to demonstrate its Christian distinctiveness but also promote the importance of understanding and appreciating other cultures and religions.

Our Vision statement is underpinned by the following Bible quotes that were chosen by the children.


Everyone Loved

 “My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you”

John 15:12: 


Joy in Lifelong learning

“Put these abilities to work; throw yourself into your tasks so that everyone may notice your improvement and progress.” Timothy 4:15  


Unlocking potential and flourishing

 “I can do all things through Christ; who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13.
