Equalities Statement


At St James and St John Church of England Primary School we believe in the development of the “whole child” as an individual and endeavour to encourage them to become responsible global citizens in an ever changing multi-cultural, multi-faith world. We promote inclusivity and equality and tackle discrimination. We have high expectations for all our pupils irrespective of race, creed, gender or disability.


As a school we value ‘all God’s children’. Through our Christian values of respect, kindness, aspiration, collaboartion, friendship, resilience, couarge we aim for our children to be successful and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of faith, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar.
