Tell us how we are doing

We always welcome comments, suggestions and feedback from parents, children. governors and friends about how we are doing. We have an 'open door' policy and would encourage you to speak to any member of staff, the officegovernors or Mr Gilbert.

Should you have a complaint we would always aim to address the issue informally and promptly when it first arises. We do however have a complaints policy to advise parents on the procedure should they need it.

"St James' Coldwaltham is a fantastic school with excellent teachers and facilities led by a very approachable Head Teacher, Mr Gilbert.  My wife and I moved to the area from France with our two children mid-term, St James' made not only made my daughter feel very welcome but our whole family.  In the time time my daughter was at St James' I witnessed great improvements in her academic and social skills.  Our son had a fantastic time at Chuckleberries Pre-School making some great friends and enjoying all his adventures with Jo and Nikki.
