About St John & St James' CofE Primary School
St John & St James’ CofE Primary School is federated with another primary school in the borough (Holy Trinity CofE Primary School). This federation was formed three years ago and benefits from a shared Executive Principal, senior leadership team and Governing Body.
We are an outstanding school were pupils achieve extremely well both academically and personally. The school serves an ethnically and socially diverse area, with more than two-thirds of our pupils coming from minority ethnic groups. We currently have a school roll of 235 pupils aged 3-11 years.
The school has gained a number of awards, including Activemark 2009 for our delivery of PE within the school, Healthy Schools Status, the Basic Skills Quality Mark, and we are also an accredited Success for All school.
We believe that our pupils have excellent role models across the school and they learn responsibility and respect for each other very quickly. Our pupils enjoy coming to school, their attendance is good, and they are proud of their school and of the part they play in deciding its development.
