Head's Welcome

It is my privilege to welcome you to the website for Westhead Lathom St James’ CE Primary School. I trust you will find all the information you require and invite you to make an appointment to meet us in person and see for yourself our wonderful school.

Westhead Lathom St James’ CE Primary School really is the heartbeat of the local community. We are a smaller than average, semi-rural school with strong links with the local church - St James’ in Westhead – as well as the wider community. As a church school, our Christian values are central to everything we do and Reverend Sephton regularly visits school to join us in our collective worship.

At the heart of every successful school are the children and here at St James’ we seek to provide the best possible start in life for all of our pupils. Children's first experience of education should be positive and life enriching, filled with lessons that are vibrant and engaging which draw children into the learning experience, developing their thirst for knowledge- something which I know that the staff here are committed to achieving.

Although small in size our facilities are fantastic! Our Victorian building is exceptionally well maintained and we have an extensive outdoor area including a multi-use games area; school garden; story telling area and forest school. All of our pupils have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of inter-school sporting activities and each child’s unique talents are celebrated.

The staff and governors here at St James’ are very proud of all of our pupils’ many achievements and hope that you will visit us soon where the children would love to show you around.
