Vision and Code of Conduct

The Vision for St James’ Church of England School


St. James’ (VC) Junior School is a Church of England school that recognises the common values which are held by all faiths.

At St. James we welcome and respect people from all backgrounds and religions as part of our school family.

We have high expectations of ourselves.

We help each other to enjoy learning, to achieve the best we possibly can, and to be able to make choices that will contribute to a healthy lifestyle and economic well-being.

We work and play together so that our school is a safe and happy place where everyone feels valued.

We want members of our school family to be responsible, confident people who are able to contribute fully to society.

Code of Conduct

We fully understand the influence and impact that different forms of behaviour play in determining the success within the school, for all pupils and adults, in the forming of the whole school ethos.

We aim to nurture in the individual awareness and responsibility for attitudes, decisions, actions and recognition of their consequences.

The 4Cs form the basis of all school rules and convey clearly to staff and pupils the expectations that we have of our community.

The 4Cs are:

  • Care
  • Courtesy
  • Consideration
  • Co-operation
