Welcome to St James Church of England Primary School


Thank you for visiting our website.


St James Church of England Primary School is a welcoming, vibrant and diverse school on the edge of Northampton town.


We are a Church of England school within the Peterborough Diocese Academy Trust (PDET). Christian values are at the heart of everything we do with the value of respect underpinning all our work. We welcome families from a wide variety of backgrounds which gives us an exciting multicultural mix of language and religion.


Inclusion is an important part of our offer and we are very proud of our two specialist provisions. Our two units provide a safe environment for children who display social and emotional challenges and have therefore struggled to thrive successfully within a previous mainstream setting. We aim to integrate children from our provision into our mainstream and on to a successful re-integration into a new school. In addition, we have two full time members of staff as SENDCo and SEN Assistant who support our SEN children and their families across the school.


We have a large Child and Family Support team that provides support to children and families across a wide range of wellbeing and safeguarding issues.


As well as our 14 classrooms, studio, hall, purpose built Nursery and library, we have fantastic facilities to promote outdoor learning and sport. We have a new outdoor learning space for our Reception children and many areas around school to reflect and explore nature and the environment. In addition, we have a large playing field, sports pitches on hard surfaces, trim trial and all weather Multi Use Games Area (astroturf) which is in use before and after school as well as during the school day.
