I would like to welcome you to St. James’ Church of England Primary School, Lower Darwen.
We are extremely proud of our ‘outstanding church school’ ( SIAMS -Church School Inspection-2017 )and the relationships we have established with families and individuals within our community.
Our aim is for all learners to fulfill their spiritual, mental and physical potential. For us, success is that every child will achieve the best they possibly can in all areas – not just academic. We want all of our children to know who Jesus is and to know that they are loved and valued.
This approach has borne fruit with a comment from Ofsted (Oct 2015)
” Pupils are articulate,polite and well mannered. Their conduct around school is exemplary. Pupils display good attitudes to their learning; they listen intently and get on with work with little or no fuss.”
We are delighted with the findings of our most recent inspections and the most recent data relating to attainment and progress ( you can find this in the ‘School Information’ area of our website). We offer high quality extra-curricular experiences for our children and our school priorities for improvement in the coming years are linked to enhancing our curriculum and the wider experiences on offer to the children and their families.
This website contains information for parents and carers of our children and for those who are considering bringing their children to St James’. You are very welcome to arrange a visit to our school – just telephone or call to make an appointment.
We look forward to your child joining or family.
