Through our curriculum at St James’ CE Academy School, we aim to help all our pupils learn and achieve by developing:
an understanding of faith and diversity
enthusiasm for, and enjoyment of learning
enquiring minds and the ability to think creatively, rationally and critically
confidence and self esteem to enable life long learning
aspirations and motivation for future success
the basic skills, abilities and knowledge necessary for their whole lives, in work and leisure, so they become responsible and caring citizens who make a positive contribution to their local community, the city of Kingston upon Hull and beyond
the ability to work, both independently and co-operatively, with concentration and perseverance
a clear sense of right and wrong
the ability to make informed choices, manage risk and to cope with change and adversity
an appreciation of the efforts and achievements of others
the ability to form worthwhile relationships based on respect for themselves and others at home, school and in the community
I particularly enjoy RE as I like learning more about God and Jesus, there is more and more to learn every day.
My favourite subject is maths because it is fun as well as challenging!
I love the exciting trips that we go on, they make me think about the future and my future career.
I learn something new every day, then I like to go home and do more research, particularly about out topic.
The books we read in school have inspired me to read more at home; I really enjoy reading every day.
St James is like one big family, we look after each other and I feel safe here.
