As Head teacher I welcome you to Culgaith Church of England School and am 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.
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 get in touch. We look forward to welcoming you to Culgaith CE Primary, thank you for taking the time to visit our page! Mrs Dobinson (Head teacher)
