The Bishop Harvey Goodwin School 

Welcome to The Bishop Harvey Goodwin Church of England Primary School !  We are a happy, vibrant and caring learning community situated near to the historic city of Carlisle. Our school was created as result of an effective amalgamation in 2002. We are fully committed to ensure that you and your child remain at the heart of our school so that they achieve their full potential in an enjoyable and secure environment.

During our recent Ofsted inspection in March 2018 Ofsted rated us as good. They said our pupil’s make good progress overall because the majority of lessons have good teaching and some of it is outstanding. We were particularly pleased about the way they identified pupils as being proud of their school and considerate of one another.

‘The school is well led. Senior staff has high aspirations for the school and its pupils. They spare no effort in cultivating a harmonious atmosphere that reflects the school’s Christian ideals.’ (Ofsted January 2013)

Our Senior Leadership Team is made up of myself as Headteacher, Mrs Craggs the Deputy Headteacher, Teacher and Lead Teacher of the Foundation Stage/ Key Stage One and Two, Mrs Slack SENCO, Teacher and Lead of phonics and Mrs Davies Lead for RE & CLA.  As a school we really value the good relationships we form with parents and the way this positively impacts on the well-being of all our pupils. Our latest SIAS Report  2015 recognised this strength.

As we are a Church of England Voluntary Aided School we have a wide range of stakeholders including the Governing Body, Local Authority, School Staff, Pupils and Parents. The Local Authority maintains us; however, the governing body is the Admissions Authority. We are in the parish of St John The Baptist, Upperby and are closely associated with St Herbert’s parish in Currock. Although Religious Education and Worship are distinctively Anglican we warmly welcome pupils from all denominations. We live every aspect of our school through our core values of Respect, Friendship, Forgiveness and Hope.

We have achieved many awards including Investors in People, Healthy Schools Award and the Arts Mark of which we are very proud.

Please take time to look at our website. Feedback and suggestions are always welcome or simply come and visit us.
