Welcome to Westhead Lathom St James Church of England Primary School. My name is Mrs. Albion and as head-teacher of our school I would like to tell you about our school, staff and children within
New line We are very proud of the excellent behaviour in our school, not only in lessons but on the playground, the school field and during trips outside school.
Social and emotional aspects of learning are valued highly at St. James. If a child is not emotionally secure then they won’t be able to learn to their full potential and won’t become the well-rounded member of the community we would like them to become. Friendships between children are generally very positive but where there is a disagreement, staff aim to unravel the root causes with a view to resolving the situation, helping the children to reflect, empathise and build stronger social and emotional skills for life. Bullying is not tolerated in our school family. It is the subject of class lessons and addressed in collective worship. Our view is that if the smaller issues are sorted out then they can’t grow into larger ones.
Here at St. James, we believe that a strong sense of partnership between school and the family must be nurtured in order for the children who attend our school be as ready as they can be for secondary school and life beyond. We welcome working together to give our children the best possible education.
Mrs.. A. Albion
