Our School's Values and Ethos
As a Church of England School we are a caring family that offers a stimulating, inclusive and nurturing environment where all children feel safe, cared for and valued. We aim to be a constant pillar of support, kindness and love within the community. At St. James’ we strive to bring out a creative side in all subjects and embrace different ways of learning. All staff are committed to ensuring that every child excels in their learning. With Christian values at the heart of our school, St. James’ is a beacon of light in our local community.The character and ethos of St James’ is extremely important in shaping the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of our pupils. We believe that through our excellent relationships with parents/carers we can work together to establish a school community where values are clearly understood and shared.
Purpose and Use of Pupil Premium Funding
The Government believes that the Pupil Premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most. See below for links which outline how we have spent our Pupil Premium for the past two years. There is also an explanation of what we will receive in PE and Sports Premium and how we propose to use this funding for the physical well-being of our pupils.
