Welcome to Sankey Valley St James CE Primary School

At Sankey Valley St James CE VA Primary School children are at the heart of all that we do. Through the strong Christian ethos that permeates throughout the school our children exhibit the highest standards of behaviour and attitudes to work. Our curriculum is exciting and innovative and we continually strive to give our children the values, knowledge and skills that they need, in order to be the best that they can be.

We cannot achieve this without the support of our parents and invite you to join with us in a partnership that is crucial in challenging the children to achieve their full potential.

At Sankey Valley we highly value our links with communities in other countries and strong links are being fostered with a school in Germany.  This developing partnership not only gives our children an understanding of, tolerance for and empathy towards others it allows them to develop friendships, share work and ideas and identify with the common bonds that we all share.

We are proud of our school and would love to show you around.  Unfortunately due to the current Covid-19 restrictions we are unable to invite you to look round  in person at this time so please do have a look at our Open Day video below which we hope you find informative and gives you a flavour of our school.
