Grayrigg CofE School 

We are proud to be able to offer all the benefits of a small rural school only a few minutes drive from Kendal. With a stunning setting and immediate access to the beautiful local countryside, Grayrigg is the perfect beginning of a child’s educational journey.

We aim to “Inspire children to reach further than they ever thought they could”. This applies to all areas of the school curriculum. Small numbers enable the teachers to know each individual child’s needs, talents and personality, ensuring that every child reaches their full potential. Every child is able to participate in every activity, enabling them to discover skills and talents they never knew they had!

Children start in their Reception year, where they have the advantage of mixing with children in Years 1 and 2. This enables them to access learning at a variety of levels. Children settle in quickly and make good progress. Mixed age classes ensure that children are never pigeon-holed in a role. We can ensure that your child will be taught at their own individual level. They will always be challenged and supported to: 

  • Believe in themselves
  • Treat each other with kindness and respect
  • Persevere in all that they do

 Children in their Reception year are taught through the Early Year Foundation Stage Curriculum.

Your child’s progress is continually monitored against national standards by his/her class teacher on a daily basis through their class work. A variety of assessment tools are used to keep track of their progress, which is discussed with senior staff at termly Pupil Progress meetings to ensure all of our children are making good progress. We also review the provision for individual children and if required then this is adjusted to meet their specific needs. We share their attainment and progress with parents at parent evenings. At the end of Year 2 and Year 6 all children are formally assessed using Standard Assessment Tests (SATS). At the end of Year 1 the children are formally tested using the Phonics Screening Check. In July your child will be provided with a written report which details their attainment in line with national age expectations.
