Welcome to the website for Rishton Methodist Primary School. As a school we endeavor to provide the best possible education within a Christian setting. 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 child leaves 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.
We acknowledge and value our foundation by the Methodist Church, our solid links with the local Methodist community and the principles which form the basis of Methodism.
Our children are encouraged to develop a mature and positive attitude towards themselves, to their relationships with others, to the community and to the life of school in general. Outstanding standards of behaviour and respect for others are expected and are supported by our strong Christian ethos, further underpinned by our core Christian values. We also aim to ensure that our curriculum provides a Christian setting in which children can grow in understanding and develop appropriate skills, attitudes and values.
We welcome you, our parents into school at all times, seeing you as the cornerstone in your child's education and we want to work with you to ensure that your child has the best possible start to their educational journey. It is only by keeping channels of communication open that we build upon our already open and harmonious relationships to continue to support and encourage your child during their time at Rishton Methodist Primary.
We hope that you enjoy visiting our school website.
As a Methodist school, our values lie at the heart of all we are and do. Within our caring Christian community, where all are welcome, everyone is encouraged to be the best that they can possibly be. We promote respect, compassion and resilience to prepare our children for the challenges of an ever-changing world.
