A Message from our Head of School – Mrs Claire MacInnes
Welcome to our website…
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to St James Primary School, in particular our first time visitors who would like to find out a little more about us.
We are an open and welcoming school set within a strong local community. Our school caters for children of three years of age in our nursery and children from the ages of four to eleven in our main school provision.
At St James School we have a committed team of staff who create a happy, welcoming and secure environment. Our children love coming to school and make the most of the opportunities provided to them. We aim to engage all members of the school community in learning, in school life and to celebrate our successes together! We believe that the partnership between parents or carers and the school is vital and we actively encourage the community to become involved in the life of our school.
Our core moral purpose is encapsulated in our new school vision statement for 2021:
St James’ Vision and Values
Where children shoot for the stars and shine.
At St James our pupils are at the heart of everything we do. We believe that our children need to be proud of who they are, their achievements and their individuality.
Here at St James our children:
We provide children with the confidence to be an active part of the local community, explore opportunities available to them and develop their aspirations, hopes and dreams in a safe and caring environment.
We recognise that the real strength in our school community comes from working together and understanding how to support each other. We focus on personal development, experiences and developing a love of learning. We strongly believe in nurturing children’s self-belief and supporting them to become able and responsible members of the community, who are above all else, kind.
Visitors to our school always comment on the welcoming ethos, so please do take the time to visit us if you can. Happy browsing!
Thank you for visiting!
