Welcome to the website for St James' Church of England Primary School, Birch in Rusholme.
At St. James’ Church of England Primary School we value our opportunity to contribute to the local community in a positive way. The phrase “Love your neighbour as yourself” underpins everything that we do.
We believe that people, who love their neighbours as they do themselves, are rich in confidence, resilience, empathy and heart. They are positive people who wish want to make the world a better place, trying to understand others instead of criticising. They believe that everyone is a small, yet vitally important, part of a bigger picture.
St James’ has a unique opportunity to shape our community, which is a privilege. It is our hope that everyone who comes in to contact with us, is able to help us learn to love our neighbour as we would ourselves. In turn, we hope that they will learn to do the same.
Thank you for visiting our website.
