"Pupils are well cared for and happy in school."
"The behaviour of pupils is good. They are kind, considerate, respectful and polite."

This school is committed to safeguarding and promoting
the welfare of children and expects all staff and
volunteers to share this commitment.
Welcome to our website. We hope you find it informative and enjoy looking at the events that take place during the year.
St James CE (VA) Primary School is a one form entry school with a vibrant, family atmosphere. We have seven classes catering for children from Reception through to Year 6, ages 4--11. Children learn and play in safe environments. Our outdoor playground areas are enclosed with separate play spaces for the younger children, though they do enjoy visits from older pupils who support play activities.
We believe that every child is unique and every child has the right to be supported to be the very best they can be. It is our great privilege to work with a team of talented professionals and a dedicated governing body who all share this view.
Our pupils enjoy rising to a challenge and know that they share the responsibility to make our school a great place to learn. They work hard to meet targets and make progress. Learning is fun at St James! Special events like Maths Puzzle Day, Science Day and Faith Week add an extra dimension to learning. We welcome parental involvement and firmly believe that children benefit from secure home/school links.
While we promote Christian values and maintain strong links with the parish churches of St James, Southam and All Saints, Ladbroke, we welcome families of all faiths or no faith into our school. Our pupils are considerate and respectful towards one another.
Our website gives only a taste of what is special about St James. If you are interested in finding out more, please make an appointment to visit us. We would be delighted to show you around.
