Mrs Milligan - Church Links & RE 2019 - 2020

Our motto is:
‘Your Word is a Lamp to My Feet, a light on my path.’ Psalm 119:v105
Our vision is
With exploring minds, and faith, we grow and learn together.
 
At St James' C of E Junior School, our Christian Values are at the heart of everything we do. Children develop a good understanding of key bible teachings which highlight the value as well as other stories, poems and artwork. Within each value, we have a linked bible story which children learn about and reflect on how this teaching demonstrated the values. Our Christian Values are:

Our Church

St. James’ Junior School is a Church of England primary school of voluntary controlled status. 

 Having good links with our local Church School is very important to us. The children have the opportunity to come into St. James’ Church on numerous occasions during the school year. Whole School Collective Worship is led by myself in the church on alternate weeks, and the six Christian Values which are a foundational aspect of school life, underpin what we do together and how we do it. 

I visit the school often and take an occasional role in delivering the Understanding Christianity teaching material in the School. During the past year I have also led ‘Sing Squad’ and I have been the Basketball Coach for an after school club!

Over the year St. James’ Church partners with both our Church Schools in delivering spectacular special services: ‘For our mams’ and ‘The Big Christmas Sing’ to name just two. The Church also lays on special events at Easter and occasional ‘Sacred / Prayer Space’ activities at other times during the year. We also ensure that all Children are given a Bible of their own when they start at our school.

St. James’ Church also runs Messy Church and Pizza Church - which have a good number of local children and families in attendance.

As I look back over the best past of four years of involvement with our school, I am delighted with the wonderful way our church and school links have been maintained and even deepened.

You see, our church and school link is way more than an occasional assembly!

Finally, I am very thankful for our supportive community who also work hard to maintain a great relationship / partnership between our church and school.

St James’ Junior School is a wonderful school with a great Christian ethos. 

The schools Christian Values are not just words on display boards around the school. But, are evidenced through the terrific children and fantastic staff who make our school a joyful place to be!
