St James' CE Primary School is a one-form entry school in Enfield closely linked to St James’ Church, this link enables our children to flourish and learn from Christian values which are so important to us.
Our biggest asset without a doubt are our fantastic children who are friendly, happy and keen to learn. At St James’ we believe that all children should fulfil their potential and the dedicated staff team will always go the extra mile to enable this to happen.
Being a small school we pride ourselves in knowing our children and their families well. We meet the needs of our children through our engaging curriculum, our pastoral care and spiritual guidance. We understand that all children are unique so we adapt our teaching and learning accordingly. We stand out from other mainstream schools as we use the skills of experts such as our resident Play Therapist and Music Therapist. Pupils have a strong voice within the school. Our Pupil Leadership team is integral to the running of our school; a democratic whole school election was held for the positions of chairperson and vice-chairperson.

Our school community is inspired by the Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13) where we are encouraged to think about and understand that the smallest things have the greatest potential when they are provided with the best environment for growth. This is exactly what we all strive for at St James’; a learning environment where all our children can flourish and grow in their own unique way. Matthew 13 [Parable of the Sower]
That same day Jesus left the house and went to the lakeside, where he sat down to teach. The crowd that gathered around him was so large that he got into a boat and sat in it, while the crowd stood on the shore. He used parables to tell them many things.
“Once there was a man who went out to sow grain. As he scattered the seed in the field, some of it fell along the path, and the birds came and ate it up. Some of it fell on rocky ground, where there was little soil. The seeds soon sprouted, because the soil wasn't deep. But when the sun came up, it burned the young plants; and because the roots had not grown deep enough, the plants soon dried up. Some of the seed fell among thorn bushes, which grew up and choked the plants. But some seeds fell in good soil, and the plants bore grain: some had one hundred grains, others sixty, and others thirty.”
Our children are the seeds that can flourish and grow and we as the school are the environment that will allow this to happen and working together will allow our children to grow and develop as confident individuals who are inspired by this parable to be the best they can be!
