Our school ethos and values

Bewcastle school is unique. Our motto is 'Successful learning in a happy environment'. We aim to deliver a high quality education for all our children, within a nurturing and relaxed setting. Children have freedom to explore our extensive outdoor space and, in the summer months, use our swimming pool on a daily basis. We have a large sandpit, outdoor toys, including bikes and scooters, a wildlife area, a polytunnel for growing vegetables and space to play, run and build dens with friends.

Our teaching staff is highly experienced and we work in a professional team with our teaching assistants and visiting teachers. We have particular expertise in teaching children in mixed age classes, with the challenges and opportunities that this brings. We currently have expert dance, music, maths and P.E. teachers who regularly work in school, bringing their own skills and enthusiasm with them.

We have an 'open door' policy for parents and visitors and have regular community lunches and coffee mornings where everyone can join us. The parish vicar and curate lead collective worship weekly and we have a committed governing body who work closely with the headteacher and other senior leaders to plan for the future and develop our school community.
