Top 100!

Everyone at St James’ CE Junior School is very proud to have received a letter from David Laws MP, Minister of State for Schools, to congratulate us on being amongst the top 100 performing schools based on sustained improvement in attainment at level 4 or above in reading, writing and mathematics each year from 2012 to 2014.

This is due to the hard work of pupils, staff and parents, so WELL DONE and THANK YOU!

'What have you done today to make you feel proud?'


General Philosophy

We believe that a school should have a happy, friendly, caring atmosphere where mutual respect and consideration for others go hand in hand with the pursuit of good standards and attitudes to work.  Individual teachers take a major responsibility for the social and educational welfare of pupils in their classes but everybody in school takes an active, caring interest in all the children in school.


It is the overall aim of the school to create an atmosphere of friendliness and confidence where every member of the school community feels that they are appreciated, can realise their own potential and make the fullest contribution to the school with due regard to age, status and ability.
