Our Values

We are a Church of England Voluntary Controlled School with close links to St James' Church in the Parish of Whitehaven.

Our vision is to create a nurturing atmosphere where our children are given varied opportunities to grow as a whole person.  We endeavor to provide each child with the knowledge and skills to confidently work towards their full potential.  

~'With exploring minds, and faith, we grow and learn together'.

We will achieve our vision within the spirit of Christianity. 'Your word is a lamp to my feet, a light on my path'  Psalm 119:v105. 

The core Christian Values of our school, selected by the whole school community, are: Forgiveness, Peace, Compassion, Thankfulness, Friendship and Endurance.  

As well as dedicating time looking at these values during RE lessons and collective worship, these values underpin all experiences here at St James'.
