Bath and Wells MAT


Everyone at St James Church School has the right to feel welcome, secure and happy.

We aim to provide a safe, caring and friendly climate for learning for all our children to allow them to improve their life chances and help them maximise their potential. We also aim to create an inclusive environment for all children which openly discusses differences between people and celebrates diversity.

We expect children to act safely and feel safe in school, including that they understand the issues relating to bullying and that they feel confident to seek support from school should they feel unsafe. We also want parents to feel confident that their children are safe and cared for in school and incidents when they do arise are dealt with promptly and well.

In July 2022 we were awarded the Silver United Against Bullying Award recognising our commitment to reducing bullying and giving children the skills to stand against it.
