Headteacher's welcome

Welcome to St. James' Catholic primary School. We pride ourselves on our strong links with families, governors and the local community; working together to provide the best possible start to our children's journey in education.  We are extremely proud of our bespoke, knowledge-based curriculum which allows all children to flourish, reach and even exceed their potential. Our curriculum is designed to allow learning to 'stick' across the primary years and beyond, with children 'knowing more, remembering more and doing more'.


Please take time to explore our wonderful curriculum (click on the link below) to gain an in depth insight of the exciting, sequential and engaging opportunities which take place daily - there is a real 'buzz' for learning here.


I feel privileged to be headteacher of such a warm, happy, inclusive and forward thinking school where children are at the heart of all we do.   We don't know what jobs our children will do in the future, in fact, they may not even exist yet!  However, at St. James' we strive to challenge and equip our pupils with: knowledge, resilience, empathy, perseverance and confidence so they have high aspirations, a strong character and the ability to conquer their dreams!   


Not only do the children succeed academically at St. James' but their personal development is second to none. We facilitate 'hands on', practical experiences with trips and visits, bringing learning to life; ensuring that these memorable events are linked to learning and development.  Our children are taught vital skills which promote a strong sense of self-worth, tolerance, mutual respect and appreciation for others. 


It's difficult to put into words the uniqueness of our ambitious, caring and thriving school, so please come and see for yourself. 


We are a happy team and you will always receive a warm welcome from all. Once a member of our loving school family at St. James', you will always belong.


Best wishes

Angela Blacoe
