Loving Learning, Loving Life, Loving God's World.
We are proud and privileged to work as a community of learners, at the vital task of providing a Christian-based education of the highest quality, to the children entrusted to us.
We are a warm and friendly, purposeful school with a strong community ethos. Our mission statement is Loving Learning, Loving life, Loving God’s World and all the work we do is underpinned by our values of Respect, Friendship and Excellence.
Our exceptional staff team work hard together to provide an aspirational, lively and memorable curriculum to enhance all aspects of the children’s academic, social, emotional and spiritual living and learning. We aim to foster a passion for learning, supported by our growth mindset approach, which encourages and develops effective behaviours for learning such as independence and resilience. Our children thrive within a culture of high expectation where every individual is encouraged to reach their full potential. We fully believe that all children are loved by God and should feel safe and valued within our school community. All of us are deeply committed to go the extra mile to ensure that each child is inspired, engaged and celebrated.
We cherish the close working relationships we have with our families and recognise the importance of every parent, family member and carer as an active partner in their child’s education.
We value our partnership with St. James’ Church, the local parish community and beyond.
We are proud with the people that our children become as they travel through their school journey with us: confident, self-motivated and compassionate with high standards of respect and integrity.
In our loving, Christian school community, we uphold and actively promote these values.
