Welcome to Sycamore Class

Sycamore Class is a Year 6 class where all children are valued as individuals and where respect for each other is valued. We will support your child become independent, resilient learners who take responsibility for their learning and behaviour. We will build upon their learning and encourage them to take risks.

By working hard and trying your best, they have an amazing opportunity to end their primary school years on a high.

We look forward to going on this journey with them and watching them ‘sparkle and shine.’

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.
