‘Bickershaw School is a community hub and a beacon of Christian love and witness in a small village setting …. school, home and church are brought together in harmony.’ SIAMS Keeping on Track visit 2016
On behalf of the children, staff, and governors, I welcome you to our warm, caring and inclusive church school. I hope that our website will give you an interesting and valuable insight into the life of our school and a taste of what we offer.
Our vibrant Christian ethos has a positive impact on children’s progress, achievement and spiritual development. It is based upon seven Core Christian Values, which are at the heart of all that we do. We have a strong sense of community with a family atmosphere, maintaining excellent links with our parents/carers, parishioners, our local community and the Diocese of Liverpool.
Ours is a school where all children engage - there are no invisible children here! We aim to ensure that every child feels safe, secure and confident, with a strong sense of self-worth. We are dedicated to the provision of a nurturing environment where children learn and grow to be the best they can.
We actively encourage both staff and parents to support the children in our pursuit of high standards in education, within a happy and supportive environment. We provide a rich and varied curriculum, which is motivating and challenging, yet appropriate for all children, regardless of ability or need. We encourage an understanding of all faiths and cultures by

What steps can we take to protect ourselves?
Just like flu and other communicable disease everyone can take simple hygiene measures to protect themselves and others:
- Catch it, Bin it, Kill it : Sneeze into disposable tissues “Catch it”, dispose of them “Bin it” and then wash hands with warm soap and water or use hand sanitiser gel if it is not possible to wash (“kill it”.) Catch it, Bin it, Kill it leaflet: https://www.england.nhs.uk/south/wp-content/uploads/sites/6/2017/09/catch-bin-kill.pdf
- Wash your hands regularly with soap and water or hand gel if soap and water is not available, as a second-best option. I cannot stress too strongly how important this simple step is. Washing your hands for 20 seconds with liquid soap and water is so effective in breaking the chain of infection. This link will take you to a video clip and instructions for how to wash your hands, please share it with staff and pupils and their families. https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/best-way-to-wash-your-hands/
