Welcome to St James CE Primary Academy

Our Vision: 

Together through faith we will aspire to grow in our understanding of ourselves, in our abilities and in our knowledge of God’s wonderful diverse world.

On behalf of the children, parents, governors and staff I would like to warmly welcome you to St James CE Primary Academy.

Our school is a place of high expectations, where we aim to provide all our pupils with a friendly, supportive and vibrant learning environment. We promote a love of learning and enable every individual to develop to their full God given potential.

Our school is a purposeful place underpinned by our shared Christian values; Trust, Honesty and Truthfulness, Friendship, Love, Respect and Perseverance. It is a fun place to be, with both creativity and enjoyment celebrated, alongside academic achievements. Above all our school is a safe place, at the heart of the community and where every individual is valued.

Our school converted to an academy on 1st September 2016 joining a group of schools belonging to St Chad’s Academy Trust (SCAT). This is the Lichfield Diocese’s Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). This partnership of schools will provide us with opportunities to further increase the educational outcomes and opportunities for your children, whilst set within the framework of a Christian belief and practice.

We hope you enjoy looking at our website. It will give you a taster of what school life is like at St James and an insight into the range of activities and opportunities that are available. Hopefully it will also provide useful information for parents and guardians.

We will be delighted if you would like to come and meet us, have a look around, see the children at work and discover how your child could thrive here. Please contact the school office to arrange a visit- we will be pleased to welcome you at any time.

Mr Chris Dobson
