Rainford Church of England Primary School is a popular and successful school.

We aim to provide an inspirational, safe and caring learning environment where the whole school community lives out our Christian values of love, joy, peace, friendship, forgiveness, perseverance and justice.

We provide a broad and balanced curriculum, fueled by the interests of our pupils and aim to meet the learning needs of each individual child, enabling them to flourish, form happy memories and reach their full potential.

We are a school in the heart of the community and foster close links with All Saints Church, our parents and the local community.

We joined LDST on 1st March 2021 to deepen these links and to continue to improve the education we provide to our children.

We are very proud of our (June 2017) OFSTED where we were rated as good. This rating rewards the hard work and commitment of our staff to school improvement. We will continue improving and reach our goal of being Outstanding, so that all our children reach their full potential.

Our staff are committed to raising standards for all pupils. They pride
themselves on working effectively together and in partnership with parents, to provide a caring and supportive learning environment.

We want children to enjoy their education and develop an enthusiasm for
learning. To facilitate this, we take full advantage of our fantastic surroundings including a spacious playgrounds and field, small woodland and access to the Linear Park. By integrating these into learning we provide a range of rewarding learning experiences that encourage, challenge and extend the abilities of our children.

We are proud of our school and encourage you to visit our website, which we hope will give you a real insight into what makes us a truly successful and happy school.
