Our Vision and Christian Values

 

We aspire to provide a caring Christian learning environment which values children as individuals and encourages them to fulfill their potential and become responsible and active members of God’s world because the gospel values of love and truth are at the heart of everything we do.

 

Our aim is that St James' Lanehead school is a calm, vibrant and inclusive learning community and an inspiring place to work.

 

 

School Values

 

Each half term we learn about the teaching of Jesus Christ through the Gospel values. 

Our school is also a member of the Burnley Faith Centre where we meet members of our Christian Faith and also members from other faiths. We believe  that the teaching of Jesus Christ is rooted in our curriculum and intertwines everything we do. 

Children regularly lead and plan worship for their parents and families. 

 

 

Each class in our school has a Value Bear, which together make up our Christian values. These include:

 

Thankfulness (Reception )

 

Trust ( Reception  and Year1) 

 

Honesty (Year 1 and Year 2) 

 

Friendship (Year 2)

 

Love (Year 3) 

 

Peace ( Year 3 and Year 4) 

 

Forgiveness (Year 4 and Year 5) 

 

Respect ( Year 5 and Year 6)

 

Courage ( Year 6) 

 

Alongside the Christian Values, St James' Lanehead actively promotes British Values through the curriculum teaching and worship.

Pupil Premium Statement  2016

 

We have been asked by the Department of Education to produce a statement regarding the main barriers to educational achievement faced by eligible pupils of St.James' Lanehead. 

 

The main barrier to learning within our school is due to the social, emotional and mental health of children and their families. In order to break down these barriers to learning we have created an inclusive learning environment that supports families and children to be the best that they can be within a supportive, inspiring  Church of England Primary School.  We assist our families to enable them to support their children's learning  and we provide learning for the children that builds character and aspirations.
