Kettleshulme St James is very lucky to be very much part of a wider community. Not only does our school family extend to include parents, governors and staff, but also to the children's wider families, to the local village community, to former pupils and families and of course to the wider Parish of Whaley Bridge and the Diocese of Chester. Indeed our family reaches out to those beyond school to join us in all manner of activities from book sharing with, to making music, from charitable ventures, to sharing all manner of skills and talents, from working with others to protect our special environment. Indeed we actively forge new friendships and connections, as we seek to learn from others and give the children opportunities to experience so much about life beyond the school itself.
As part of a recent Christian Values day focusing on Kindness, the children made cards for members of the local community.
