Promoting British Values

British Values


We endeavour to actively promote the four fundamental values of:


Individual Liberty,


The Rule of Law,

Mutual Respect and Tolerance.



St James Church School Tree

St James Church School Tree 1

The St James Church School Tree represents  us and our school. The British and Christian values are the roots, nourishing and sustaining. The trunk is the strength of the school supporting the branches which represent the year groups and classes. The fruits represent all of the children and staff who grow at our school. 

Individual Liberty

We endeavour to ensure that everyone understands their rights to freedom and liberty.



This is St James Church School

Let peace live here

Let the rooms be full of happiness

Let love be all around

Love of one another

Love of all people

And love of life and living

Let us remember

That, as many hands build a house

So, many hearts build a school


As a Church School we promote the Christian Values of:

Perseverance, Reverence, Thankfulness,Trust, Peace, Forgiveness, Friendship, Justice, 

Hope ,Creation and Aspiration


We endeavour to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and equally.


We encourage children to become involved in decision-making processes and ensure that Pupil Voice is a key part of our school development. Our School Forum members, Sports Council members and House Captains (voted for by the children) play an important role in our school development.

The Rule of Law

We endeavour to ensure that everyone understands the importance of rules.


We reinforce the importance of law in respect to home, school and the wider community through assemblies, collective worship, our Golden Rules and our everyday learning.


We ensure that our school rules are clear, and are displayed in all classes and understood by everybody. We follow 6 Golden Rules and every half term we make one rule a focus for the whole school.



We are gentle

We are kind and helpful

We listen

We are honest

We work hard

We look after property


We encourage pupils to take responsibility for their actions, by guiding them through the school’s behaviour policy. We have a strong anti-bullying culture in school, where issues are addressed quickly. We have a clear and consistent behaviour policy that is carefully followed by all.


Visits by our local police and PCSO's help to reinforce our understanding of the Rule of Law.

Mutual Respect and Tolerance

We endeavour to ensure that everyone is treated as part of our community with love and respect.


We welcome, embrace and celebrate the diversity within our school community. Come in to school and see our language displays and the range of flags on show, each one signifying the countries represented by the children and families of our school. 


We learn about a range of beliefs and faiths during our RE lessons and through collective worship and our links with St James Church.
