St James’ CE Primary is a happy and healthy place to achieve and believe.

‘Leaders value and believe in each and every member of this community and the nurturing support they provide for individual parents, pupils and staff is transformational.’ (SIAMS inspection, 2022).

We’re a well-loved little school in the heart of Wetherby. Ofsted (2019) judge us to be a good school: ‘The quality of teaching is good across all year groups, including the early years. Teachers have high expectations of what pupils can achieve. Pupils work hard, concentrate well and enjoy learning. There are good relationships between staff and pupils.’

If you’d like a paper copy of any information contained on our website, or any information referred to, please ask (there is no charge for this).
