St James’ School Motto

Our school motto was jointly developed by children and staff at the school.

Our motto is, “Live to Learn: Learn to Live.”

When visiting our school you will see our interpretation of this in our attitudes to work as well as on display in all the classrooms.

Pupil Voice


We believe that listening to the pupil voice helps us to meet the needs of our pupils.
Children at St James’ make positive contributions to the daily running and success of the school.  Pupils play an active part in school life through:

  • The School Council
  • The Playground Squad
  • Peer Mediators
  • School Assistants
  • Buddies to Y3

All members of the above groups meet regularly and receive appropriate training.  They take their responsibilities seriously and make important decisions on a variety of aspects of school life.
