being a Church School
St James Primary is a church school within the Diocese of Guildford and we work closely with our local church, St James and its Rector, Rev Hannah Moore. The children visit the church regularly, for services and activities and parishioners come into school weekly to take an 'Open the book' service where they perform and read stories from the Bible. The children have assembly every day, in class and as a whole school.
As a Church school our aim is to develop children's spirituality, values and understanding of the world through four Christian values chosen by the school. These are;
These values underpin all that happens in school through our learning vision.
As a Church school, we welcome families of all faiths and no faith to be part of our caring community.
Below is our School prayer which we use in worship sessions.
