OFSTED & Reporting

Pupils rise to leaders’ high expectations for their behaviour and learning.

OFSTED & Reporting

Our Early Years Foundation Stage includes Nursery provision. We offer 30 hours of provision alongside the Reception class: 8.45 – 11.45, 11.45 – 2.45, with the option of staying for the final half hour until 3.15 for a small cost. Our teacher Miss Stewart is a supported by teaching assistant Mrs McCormick.

For further information, or to apply for a place in Nursery, please contact the school or refer the Cumbria County Council’s School Admissions Section ‘Applying for a Nursery Place’. In the event of our Nursery being over-subscribed, our usual Admissions Policy applies.

The school day begins at 8:50am each day with registration. Children can be dropped off from 8.45am each day either to the classroom door (EYFS and KS1) or left on the playground (KS2) where there will a member of staff supervising. There is a morning break from 10.30 – 10.45 for Nursery/Reception and KS1 and 11am until 11.15am for KS2. Lunchtime is between 12:15pm and 1:15pm. There is an afternoon break for Nursery/Reception and KS1 from 2:30pm—2:45pm.

The school day finishes at 3:20pm. Parents are asked to wait in the front playground and teachers will direct children to the adult who is collecting them.

For our children in Nursery we offer a flexible approach to provision where parents can select the hours they wish their child to attend. Please contact us to discuss the options available.

Pupil Premium Funding

Our pupil premium strategy statements detail our school’s use of pupil premium funding to help improve the attainment of our disadvantaged pupils.

They outline our pupil premium strategy, how we intend to spend the funding in this academic year and the effect that last year’s spending of pupil premium had within our school.

Sports Funding

Our PE and sport premium funding impact reports detail what funding we receive each year, how this is spent and the lasting impact on our pupils:

Parent Feedback

We like to know how we are doing. We enjoy hearing about the positives, but we also need to know if there are areas where you think we could improve. As a school we send out an annual questionnaire to parents, the summary results / actions of which can be found below. You can read extracts from the questionnaires in the testimonial area of this site.
