We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a flavour of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community. We hope that you find the information you are looking for, but please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.

At Yewdale Primary School we aspire to provide an engaging and vibrant learning setting where each child is given the opportunity to grow and stretch their boundaries, through nurture and support so they can experience the delight of success and develop a desire to achieve.

We believe that every child is born with the potential to succeed and given the right support and encouragement, will develop their talents to the full – whatever their starting point.

It is important to me, as Head of School, that every child at Yewdale School is valued as an individual and for this reason, every decision we make at school must have the child at its centre.

It is important to me that I know every child in school and am able to build relationships with families, so that we together, can support each other with the learning journey that children are on. Education remains a partnership between home and school and we look forward to a happy association with you and your child.

We are all individuals within a shared community that we all should be proud of and I like to welcome everyone to school each morning, setting a positive tone for each new day.

I am extremely fortunate to have a fantastic team of dedicated teachers and support staff in whom I have every confidence to support and drive the aims of our school.  Yewdale is also very well supported as part of Cumbria Education Trust, with a wider family of professionals who wish to see all of our children achieve their absolute best.

I am very excited about the next step in Yewdale’s journey as we, together, strive to achieve even greater success in all that we do.
