Headteacher's Welcome 

On behalf of the children, staff and Local Academy Council, I welcome you to Churchtown Primary School in Southport. We are a vibrant, inclusive and family orientated school with a strong community ethos. I am so proud to be Head of this caring community of learners with a fantastic staff team, supportive parents and happy, engaged children. 

Selecting a school for your child is a daunting process and I realise how important it is to feel trust in the people that care for your child each day. Each of our staff is highly dedicated and will always go the extra mile to ensure that every child is valued, inspired and engaged. This is achieved through a creative and forward thinking curriculum, which is carefully planned and sequenced, building on prior knowledge and towards clear end points. We aim to master the basics needed for life in reading, writing and maths as well as develop our knowledge and curiosity of the world. 

The excellent start begins in Nursery and continues through the school with staff providing a happy, supportive and purposeful environment, Frequent trips and visits, community activities and a wide range of after-school clubs further add to the opportunities available to children. 

We aim for all of our children to leave us with the necessary skills and vocabulary required to succeed beyond primary school; be well read and reasoned children, able to access literature in all walks of life and, perhaps most importantly of all, to inspire to pursue and realise their full potential in the wider world. 

In addition to the above aims, we have our own set of values that guide us at Churchtown and direct our children in their daily school life. We develop our children to be respectful and resilient, independent, engaged in their learning, to have fun and happiness whilst at school and to appreciate their friends, family and school community. 

We are incredibly proud of our school. Our prospectus and website will give you a flavour of what goes on at Churchtown Primary School, but I hope you will come and visit us so you can experience first-hand all we have to offer. I look forward to meeting you. 

Mrs J Payne
