St James' CE Junior School - Barrow 

St James’ Church of England Junior School was built in 1867. The school is a ‘voluntary aided’ school and as such has close links with the church next door. Our aim is to provide the very best opportunities for each child to develop their full potential whether it may be academic, sporting or creative. It is important that they enjoy school, work hard and feel a real sense of achievement and pride.

It is the overall aim of the school to create an atmosphere of friendliness and confidence where every member of the school community feels that they are appreciated, can realise their own potential and make the fullest contribution to the school with due regard to age, status and ability.

St James’ motto is Care Share and Respect and we strongly believe that if everyone works as a team the school will be a happy place where everyone can do their best. It is only when home/school links are strong that we can achieve all that we want for our children.

We believe that a school should have a happy, friendly, caring atmosphere where mutual respect and consideration for others go hand in hand with the pursuit of good standards and attitudes to work. Individual teachers take a major responsibility for the social and educational welfare of pupils in their classes but everybody in school takes an active, caring interest in all the children in school.

The addition of a sensory room at the beginning of 2021 will be a great benefit to the school.
