St James Ethos Team

At St James’ our Ethos team meets every week. We help our SLT by performing book scrutinies and performing learning walks.  We help out in assemblies by performing readings and role-playing religious stories. We even lead some assemblies in front of the whole school. 

We help to promote our Christian Values throughout school and are good role models for our friends and class mates.

Our 6 core values are:

  • Respect
  • Peace
  • Love
  • Forgiveness
  • Honesty
  • Hope


As part of St James Ethos group we meet together on a weekly basis to complete Ethos activities and to discuss how we can support Ethos around school. We work with Mrs Pilling and have worked with the children changing places project. We are involved in the monitoring and development of worship areas and prayer spaces in school. We have helped to set up different prayer spaces in the school entrance. We have attended and held a stall at the market place event at Bolton Parish Church and helped out at the Bishop Bridgeman Ethos Conference. We have been involved in the Trust church service and delivered readings here.  We also enjoy leading worship in school. We have been lucky enough to help out with Wiggle Worship in Reception and some of us were even able to visit the bishop’s home. As part of the Ethos Team we hope to make a difference to everyone’s life in school.
