Welcome to Culgaith Church of England School,  we're privileged to welcome you to our school website.  We love working with our amazing children, parents, staff and governors and we hope 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, embedded with Christian Values. We educate for Life in All its Fullness with wisdom, hope, community and dignity. We work to ensure each individual child shines during their time at Culgaith where they are happy, safe and learn.

We share the Church of England's commitment to education which is rooted in teaching from the Bible.

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.

In November 2021 Ofsted conducted a section 8 Inspection and in the resulting report graded us as a "Good" school, one where "pupils enjoy coming to school. They feel safe, knowing that adults care for them..." and where "leaders make learning to read a top priority".

We are very fortunate in having spacious environment 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 Miss. Henderson in the office on admin@culgaith.cumbria.sch.uk or ring on 01768 88655.

Thank you
