“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

Jeremiah 29:11

Our vision

At Baldersby St James Church of England Primary School our vision is to provide an education which transforms lives and communities. In partnership with our families, church and communities, and through our Christian values of HOPE, RESPECT, PERSEVERANCE and COMMUNITY, we aim for everybody to reach their full potential in body, mind, heart and spirit.

Agreed by Pupils, Staff, Families and Governors


Each week we nominate children who have done something special. These children receive a gold leaf. We write on the leaf what they have been recognised as doing something that is special and link this achievement to one of our four core values. The leaf then gets placed on our achiever’s tree which can be found in St James’ Church.
