LEARNING DISCOVERY ACHIEVEMENT

The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self control. Galatians 5:22-23

During this period of partial closure St James' school site continues to be open for provision for vulnerable pupils and children of key workers of children at both St James' School and Amberley School. Irrespective of any partial closure, the safeguarding of all our children remains our top priority and our schools will continue as normal in supporting our vulnerable children. Should you have any questions please contact Jon Gilbert, Head Teacher at the following email address: head@coldwalthamschool.com 

St James' School is set in beautiful surroundings close to the South Downs.

It is a small school, therefore all our staff have a very personal knowledge of every child. There is a friendly, family atmosphere in the school. Whatever a child's abilities, our teaching is tailored to ensure that they advance and grow.  We understand the importance of every single school day for each child. We believe that all our children have the right to the best possible learning experiences during their time with us. This is done through a range of academic and extra curricular activities such as Forest Schools, sports and creative activities.

We are a ‘Voluntary Controlled’ School which means that the Church of England maintains an active interest in the school whilst giving overall control to the Local Authority.  St James' CE primary School has a high reputation for its caring, inclusive family ethos based on Christian values. The Governors are all fully involved in the school’s life and we are also continually grateful for the wonderful help given to us by the parents and the wider community.

If you are looking for a school that has care and concern for children as individuals together with a strong family ethos, please do not hesitate to get in touch and arrange a visit. We look forward to seeing you.

We hope you will find the information contained in this website both helpful and interesting, giving you clear insight into school life.

You are welcome to make an appointment to visit us at any time: please see the 'Contact' page.

Mr Jon Gilbert - Headteacher
