Our Ethos and Distinctive Christian Character

At St James’ CE Academy we aim to provide a high quality education within a learning environment that fosters Christian values and beliefs, and is safe, secure, caring, purposeful and stimulating for all pupils.

Each member of our school community will be valued and respected and will understand their responsibility to others in the local community and beyond.

We are committed to providing a rich, broad and balanced curriculum that is inclusive, challenging and promotes a love of learning.

We aim for all our pupils to have the confidence to succeed and realise their full potential in all aspects of their development.

I particularly enjoy RE as I like learning more about God and Jesus, there is more and more to learn every day.

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.
