Welcome to Whitfield St James’ CE (VC) Primary School

Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils,

This is a child centred school and the staff are caring and compassionate individuals
with a genuine desire to develop and provide the best opportunities for the pupils.
Every pupil has the ability to excel and it is our privilege to help them achieve this.
Our pupils have the right to best quality education in all areas and we will continue to
strive to provide the opportunities to allow your children to develop into independent
learners. The world is changing and the jobs market becoming more diverse and
competitive and we have a duty to prepare our next generation for jobs that may not
yet exist.

There is a strong sense of community and developing links with the local area and
parents is an area I feel very strongly about.  I am very much looking forward to
working with you all over the coming year. I will try to be on the playground both
before and after school and please feel free to come and talk to me and if you would
like to talk privately, we can arrange a meeting. Please contact the school if you
have any questions or worries.
