Welcome to Stainton C of E Primary
Thank you for taking the time to visit our website.
We are located on the fringe of the Lake District just two miles from the town of Penrith in the beautiful village of Stainton.
We are a friendly, welcoming school where children develop a love of learning.
It is a great privilege to be Headteacher of this happy, caring and successful school and to work alongside such dedicated staff, governors, pupils, parents, grandparents and other family members within this vibrant family community.
We are all committed to the highest standards of teaching and learning and achieve this through a combination of encouragement, challenge, support and praise. We aspire to value everyone associated with our school, irrespective of age, position, race, gender, background or ability. Our aim is to ensure that all our pupils enjoy what they do and develop skills for life-long learning such as independence, determination and resilience. We motivate, support and inspire personal, spiritual, emotional and educational growth in a safe and secure environment.
We have a dynamic team of teachers and support staff who are exemplary role models, nurturing and supporting each child’s individual learning journey. We all have high expectations of pupils and of ourselves and we work hard to help all pupils achieve their true potential.
We are proud of the quality of education provided and of the wide range of opportunities offered to our pupils, not just in academic subjects, but in the wider curriculum such as sport, music and art.
We have strong pastoral support systems which help pupils to develop a sense of responsibility for themselves, their peers, their school and the wider community.
I believe that everyone associated with our school is on an educational journey and we highly value the exceptional support we receive from our parents, grandparents and the wider community.
We hope you enjoy exploring this website and finding out more. Please contact us to make an appointment if you would like to come and have a look round and learn more about what we offer.
