Headteacher's welcome

Welcome to St. James' Catholic primary School. We are a setting who prides itself on our strong links with families, governors and the local community; working together to provide the best possible start to our pupil'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 full 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 explore our wonderful curriculum, on the link below, to gain an in depth insight of the exciting, sequenced and engaging opportunities which take place daily - there is a real 'buzz' for learning here.


I feel very 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. They 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. 


You will always receive a warm welcome from all and once a member of the loving family of St. James',  you will always belong.


Best wishes

Angela Blacoe
