Our aim, through this website, is to keep parents, children and staff up to date with useful information and events, as well as to provide information for prospective parents and visitors.
Our school is situated in the attractive village of Braithwaite. It has a wonderful setting in the northern heart of the Lake District, nestling between Skiddaw, Grisedale Pike and Derwent Water. We are surrounded by some of Britain’s most beautiful mountains, lakes, woods, streams and valleys. With 58 children currently on roll, we pride ourselves on our friendly, caring atmosphere, where staff know children well. We have modern facilities and plenty of room to play and learn in our spacious school building and grounds. We provide a rich, varied and exciting curriculum for our children and aim for high standards in both work and behaviour. We see ourselves as a family school at the centre of the community and have close links with the church. We can also now provide up to 30 hours free Nursery provision (free for eligible families) and an extended day from 8:00am to 5:30pm at reasonable costs and with consistent staff.
On the 1st September 2015 the school became the third to join the Good Shepherd Multi Academy Trust and there is more information about this here.
You will find many photos of our spacious school and happy children on the website, but please do come and see for yourself!
We hope you will find this website both useful and interesting, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any further information. You will also find us on Facebook - follow the link below.
