St James C of E Primary School is a good Church of England School. All staff and Governors aim to make the school a place where Christian love and commitment are expressed in everyday life. Through our Christian vision and values, we aim to make an important contribution to community cohesion and a more equable and tolerant society. The Christian ethos of the school and the values for which we stand are apparent in every aspect of school life. The school bears in mind that England is a multi-cultural nation which has Christianity as the main religion of the indigenous population. As a result, Christianity will receive the appropriate weighting within the religious education curriculum. We are however welcoming and open to those of other faiths or none and due consideration within this framework will be given to other faiths. Respect, tolerance and understanding for the beliefs of others are promoted as part of our curriculum.
