Our Mission Statement

Rishton Methodist Primary School will develop, educate and nurture the whole child to his or her potential within the context of Christian beliefs, practice and values.

The Staff and Governors of Rishton Methodist School want the school to provide a safe, supportive and stimulating learning environment, in which each child is treated as an individual and the needs of all are considered. We will encourage the children to work hard, to behave appropriately and to take pride and pleasure in their own and the achievements of others.

We look forward to working together on a basis of mutual respect to help our children become confident and enthusiastic learners. 

Dear Visitor

Welcome to the website for Rishton Methodist Primary School. We value and look after the needs of every child and strive to make sure that all of our pupils enjoy their time here. Its a place to grow in friendship and life learning and when your children leave at the end of year 6 we always hope to send them off being fully equipped to walk well through the rest of their education and life. Our aim is to offer a broad, balanced and appropriate curriculum which will encourage academic, aesthetic, physical, social, emotional and spiritual development.
