Borrowdale CofE Primary School 

We are a vibrant and friendly small school, providing a creative and nurturing environment where children can flourish. All children are treated as individuals and taught in small class groups and it is this personalised approach that allows children to enjoy learning and achieve success.

We all work very hard to provide an outstanding learning environment. Our curriculum is innovative, challenging and fun to inspire a life-long enthusiasm for learning. Our school is set in the most amazing surroundings where children can take part in lots of outdoor activities, and this helps to develop confidence, self-esteem and motivation. We bring the community into the life of the school as much as we can to provide memorable learning experiences together.

At Borrowdale Church of England Primary School, our aim is to create a stimulating, secure and supportive environment where pupils are challenged and encouraged to develop towards their full potential.

We have high expectations of every individual and seek to develop the whole child academically, physically, spiritually, morally and culturally, where quality relationships, positive self-esteem, mutual respect and responsibility are promoted. We believe that our Christian values and the partnerships between pupil, parents, staff, governors, the Church and the wider community are vital to the success of the school.

Schools Extended Local Offer Response

How does the setting/school/college know if children/young people need extra help and what should I do if I think my child/young person may have special educational needs?

As a small school we get to know our pupils and parents really well. When parents or teachers think extra help is needed they get together to discuss their concerns and agree on a way forward.

How will early years setting/school/college staff support my child/young person?

As a small school we have limited resources, but we pride ourselves on being flexible with the resources we have.

How will the curriculum be matched to my child's/young person's needs?

How the curriculum can be matched will depend on the individual needs of the pupils and the resources available.

How will both you and I know how my child/young person is doing and how will you help me to support my child's/young person's learning?

All parents are kept informed about their children's progress through regular meetings and annual reports.
