Our Vision, Aims and Values

Our Vision

At St James’ CE Academy, we provide a high quality education within a learning environment that fosters Christian values and beliefs, and is safe, caring, purposeful and stimulating for all pupils. Each member of our school community is equally valued and respected.

“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full”
John 10:10

We aim for all to have the confidence to succeed and realise their full potential in all aspects of their lives by developing:

  • An understanding of faith and diversity
    (Be welcoming and inclusive to all – Romans 15:7)
  • Aspirations and motivation for future success
    (Be the best they can be – Matthew 17:20)
  • The ability to make informed choices, manage risks and to cope with change and adversity
    (Be strong and courageous to do the right thing – Deuteronomy 31)
  • The ability to form worthwhile relationships based on respect for themselves and others at home, school and in the community
    (Love one another as I have loved you all – John 13)

Together we live and learn in the light of God
