We are a small and friendly, thriving school situated in rural Cumbria between Wigton and Aspatria. We have 70 children on roll from three to eleven years old and we offer a range of curriculum related after school clubs as well as childcare provision three nights per week (Mon, Wed and Fri from 3pm to 5:30pm)
We offer a staggered drop off and pick up each day (8:30am & 8:45am) for children in KS1 and KS2 and 9am for children in EYFS. Parents can then select their preferred drop off and pick up slot. Pick up times are 3pm and 3:15pm.
The children come straight into morning activities each day that are designed to practise and reinforce prior learning across core subjects such as phonics, reading, arithmetic, spelling and multiplication tables. The core hours for a child in KS1 or KS2 is 32.5 hours per week (8:45 am-3:15pm)
Please follow the links on our website to find out a little bit more about us. However, we would always recommend a visit to the school in order to fully appreciate what we have to offer.
