School Values

TEACH          NURTURE        CELEBRATE

 

In order for pupils at St James to experience life in its fullness we will:

 

TEACH them spiritual and moral values, NURTURE high expectations and aspirations and CELEBRATE achievements, creativity and enquiring minds.

 

Life in all its Fullness (John 10:10)

 

VALUES

We are proud that Christ's values are at the heart of all that we say, do and teach. Our vision has been the driver in selecting our core Christian values. We want children to experience 'life in all its fullness,' and believe that a secure understanding or our core values will enable all children to flourish.

We teach forgiveness and friendship, we nurture hope and love and we celebrate thankfulness and perseverance. Children are encouraged to reflect upon our Christian values and how they are shaping them as individuals throughout their time at St. James. During our celebration worship  children are recognised for demonstrating one of our core values over the week and this is celebrated.

What is important for all our families is that we, as a school community, welcome the richness and diversity that reflects the wider community of St James’ within the city of Hereford, respecting and celebrating the range of backgrounds, cultures and languages that we have in our midst. We believe that by making it explicit to our children, and by using these values in our daily lives and in all that we do, we will equip them to lead lives in which they can feel positively about themselves, others and the world around them.
