About Us

We are a thriving, popular school in the town centre.  We are very proud of our excellent reputation, our achievements and the experiences which we provide for the children. 

All our staff are committed to providing an exciting learning environment full of stimulating and imaginative opportunities, which ensures that children’s first experience of their journey through education is challenging and fun. 

We are part of Inspire Multi Academy Trust (InMAT), whose goal is ‘to put children first’; something that we believe in whole-heartedly.

Our Aims

We aim to provide a bright, welcoming, safe, secure and stimulating environment where learning is fun.’ We aim to ensure that every child reaches their potential academically and enjoy and achieve by offering all children equal access to a broad and balanced, enquiry-led curriculum.

We believe that every child is individual and that all children have the ability to succeed and excel. We know that children thrive when they are in a secure and safe environment, supported by caring, sensitive adults with wellbeing at the heart of everything we do, making us an endorsed Kaleidoscope Colour Therapy School.’

Our Mission Statement

At St James, we ensure all children are given the opportunity to be the best they can be.

Entering our school gives your child the chance to start their educational journey. As they do so, we strive to unlock the potential inside.

Our wonderful school is in the heart of Daventry, but when you enter the school grounds, you would never know it. A warm, vibrant and friendly atmosphere is waiting to greet you inside the Georgian building.

You and your child will join our school family which enables every child to learn to the best of their ability in an environment where they feel safe and valued, where they are stimulated and happy.

Come and meet Bramble, our mascot and all of the Value Bears. They help and encourage children to respect themselves and others as part of our values-based curriculum.

We are very proud of our school, so would like to invite you to come and visit.
