Our mission at St. James' C.E. (Controlled) Junior School is to develop happy, healthy, confident and fulfilled children who strive to be the best they can in all that they do, gaining skills that will last a lifetime. As a Church School, we believe this happens in a caring Christian environment and is based on the values of co-operation, courage, honesty, forgiveness, trust and friendship, where each one of us is respected and we understand our responsibility to ourselves, each other and the wider community.
We have high expectations for all our children at St James' C.E. Junior School but above all, we want our pupils to be happy and successful individuals. We endeavour to help all of our children achieve, whether they are academic high flyers or in need of a little more support. We believe that learning should be enjoyable and that children are happy when gaining success in a secure and reassuring environment.
We recognise and value the important role that parents play and see effective education as a partnership between home and school. Our aim is to help children in our care become self-confident and independent individuals who respect all members of our school community and recognise their growing responsibilities as citizens.
