Our Mission

We believe that every child is special and has their own talents

At Clitheroe St. James' C.E. Primary School, Christianity flows through everything we do but we also value other faiths.

All the children will be helped to take responsibility for their own learning and behaviour. They will be encouraged to always try to do their best and be proud of their work.

Clitheroe St. James' C.E. Primary School is an important and valuable part of the Church family and the wider community.
