Our Vision

Believing, Belonging, Being

In our school we want our children to be caring and confident learners. We aim to provide a loving, safe and secure environment, where every child has the belief to achieve and the sense of belonging to a Christian, school family.
We will nurture and encourage children's’ ambitions to enable them to believe in themselves; to become courageous learners, and to be compassionate, tolerant and respectful members of our school community                                                                                                                              
                           Our school logo is the shell of St James and a lapwing.   
The scallop shell is a symbol of St James who made pilgrimages across Europe spreading the word of God. Pilgrims used the scallop shells to make oil lamps to light their way or to provide a vessel from which they could drink from.


The lapwing is a bird that is found on farmland and low areas of northern Europe. They used to be a common sight on the marshy, fen areas of East Anglia.
