As Head Teacher of Culgaith Church of England School, I am privileged to welcome you to our school website. 2018-19 is my second year as Headteacher at Culgaith C of E school and I love working with our amazing children, parents, staff and governors. Our intention is that our website gives you a broad understanding of our school as well as giving specific information you may need.
Culgaith C of E Primary School is a very happy, caring, friendly and welcoming school for children between the ages of 3 and 11 where exciting things happen and people grow, play and learn together. We are situated to the East of Penrith, just off the M6 motorway and the A66. We serve the village of Culgaith and surrounding areas.
The well-being of all members of Culgaith C of E School community is very important to us. We believe that we must nurture the whole child and feel strongly that creativity and fun play a major part in the learning process. We work to ensure each individual child shines during their time at Culgaith where they are happy, safe and learn.
We have high expectations in terms of being ready to learn and of behaviour. We encourage a high level of independence, mutual respect and support. The children play an active part in decision making within our school through the School Council and whole School Council led collective worship.
We have highly skilled and highly committed members of staff and we are "one big family" as documented in the lastest Ofsted report. In November 2016 we were inspected by Ofsted who affirmed that we are a good school with many outstanding features.
We are very fortunate in having spacious accommodation including a wonderful variety of outdoor spaces. Our wildlife area, playground and separate fenced areas for the younger children provide opportunities for a range of work and play activities.
We think you will find out a lot of what you need to know about our school from this site, but if you would like to know more please feel free to email the office on firstname.lastname@example.org or ring on 01768 88655.
Mr. Tom Armstrong
