As a Church School we strive to promote a Christian ethos and
develop the childrens' spiritual awareness.

As a Church School we work hard to offer:

Clearly defined Christian values that have a consistent impact on all members of the school community which is evident in the nurture of all pupils.

A strong Christian ethos that supports the learning and achievement of all pupils, particularly the most vulnerable as a result progress is good, and the majority of pupils achieve in line with or above national expectations.

Engaging collective worship and religious education (RE) so that pupils have a well-developed understanding and appreciation of the significance of Jesus Christ as well as tolerance and understanding of other faiths.

In our last SIAMS Inspection we were judged to be 'Outstanding', with the Inspector writing, “The school has identified the core Christian Values of Love, Respect, Trust and Compassion as the foundation of its Christian Ethos ‘Success for All – Learning Together in God’s Love’.

These values have been introduced consistently and systematically through collective worship, RE and the wider curriculum. Because they are securely embedded within the school all members of the school community have a strong understanding and appreciation of how they relate to daily life. These values and the wider Christian ethos of the school are described as permeating throughout the Campus and impacting on the broader community”

This is led by our vision statement:

OUR VISION STATEMENT

We strive to provide the children at St James Infant and Nursery School with an outstanding opportunity to learn in a caring, Christian setting at the heart of our community.

LEARNING

High quality teaching and learning will be at the heart of all we do .Together we will develop a collaborative use of key skills for lifelong learning.


TOGETHER

Everyone will be supported and encouraged to thrive and enjoy their learning together in a safe and secure environment guided by our Christian Values.

IN GODS LOVE

Through nurturing confidence and independence together we will sow the seeds that enable everyone to achieve their full potential and harvest their successes in God’s Love.

We strive towards our Vision through our Christian Values: Respect, Trust, Love and Compassion.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”


1 Corinthians 13:4-8 New International Version (NIV)
