Yewdale is a very attractive school, with a shared culture of supporting and encouraging children to be the best they can be.
Our current NOR of around 240 and 1.5 form entry means that we have some mixed age group classes, and this creates lots of opportunities for innovation and creativity in delivering our well-designed curriculum. However, we have capacity and ambition to increase to 2-form entry, and the development of new communities in our catchment provides an excellent route to sustainable growth.
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.
As a place to live, Cumbria takes some beating, from the stunning beauty of the coast, to the challenge of the Lake District, and the history of Hadrian’s Wall, Cumbria offers something for everyone. A predominantly rural county, Cumbria is home to some of England’s highest mountains and some of England’s biggest lakes. Cumbria is a big county with big opportunities for those who chose to live and work here. The county is famous worldwide for its stunning scenery. Perhaps less well known are its bustling market towns filled with shops and brimming with life.
Venturing further afield it has great links to the rest of the country by the M6, to Scotland via the M74 and to Newcastle upon Tyne by the A69, connectivity to Cumbria is excellent. There are also excellent rail links to Newcastle, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Manchester and London. If you’re travelling by air, Manchester, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle and Blackpool Airports are all within two hour’s drive. This is the place to be – to live and work, and to have an excellent quality of life to spend with your family and friends and to stretch yourself professionally.
