Mr JessopOn behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Crosthwaite Church of England Primary School. We hope you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of the enriched, inspiring and vibrant life of our school, the work of our pupils and the quality of education we strive to deliver.

Our school is a small, rural primary, set in the outstanding area of natural beauty that is the Lyth Valley. Visitors to our school comment very positively on our superb learning environment – both indoors and outdoors – and fantastic facilities.

While it is my priority that the education your child receives here with us will enable them to achieve their academic potential and progress confidently into the next phase of their education, it is also part of my vision that all our children are filled with positive experiences, that they are aware of the endless possibilities that await them and that they are nurtured in order to develop within them, a confidence to embrace whatever comes their way. Underpinning the above, is my relentless commitment to ensuring that the children here possess the values that enable them to live well in society and prepares them to deal effectively with the challenges that the modern world presents.

All of the staff and Governors share this vision and recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs. They work tirelessly to provide a varied and engaging curriculum and a positive school experience. You’ll find all areas of our school to be hives of activity and full of creativity and learning, making this a special place indeed for children.

Whilst the website provides a wealth of information it is no substitute for a visit – please feel free to contact us to arrange a visit – we would love to show you around!


Yours sincerely,

Matthew Jessop
