Message From the Headteacher

"Welcome to St James C of E Infant School.  As a Church of England school, we pride ourselves on our strong Christian ethos.  Our Christian Values underpin everything we do in school and in the community.

Staff and Governors are committed to providing a safe, happy and exciting environment in which our children can develop a life-long love for learning and respect for each other and the world around us.

From the moment each child arrives we nurture and encourage them to grow into independent learners, value them as individuals, and all staff work hard to ensure each child reaches their full potential.

You are very welcome to visit our school.  Please contact us to make an appointment.  We look forward to meeting you!"

St James C of E Infant School is committed to ensuring that safeguarding and child protection is given the utmost priority in every aspect of school life.  Child protection is an essential task for everyone in school.  For further information on this see our safeguarding page or visit www.cumbrialscb.com.

There is no place for extremist views of any kind in our school, whether from internal sources – pupils, staff, visiting adults, governors etc. or external sources – school community, external agencies or individuals.

Any prejudice, discrimination or extremist views, including derogatory language, displayed by pupils, staff, visitors or parents will always be challenged and, where appropriate, dealt with.  Where misconduct by a teacher is proven, the matter will be referred to the National College for Teaching and Leadership for their consideration.  Misconduct by other staff will be dealt with under normal school disciplinary procedures.

We encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.  We ensure that partisan political views are not promoted in the teaching of any subject in the school and where political issues are brought to the attention of the pupils, reasonably practicable steps are taken to offer a balanced presentation of opposing views to pupils.
