St Bridget's CofE Primary School - Cockermouth
St Bridget's CE Primary School is a small firendly Primary School on the outskirts of Cockermouth in the village of Brigham. Children attend from the age of 3 to 11, with wrap around care for children from ages 2-11. We also offer 30 hours funded Early years places from breakfast club through to after school club.
St Bridget’s school is a Church of England primary school situated in the West Cumbrian village of Brigham, lying just outside the Lake District National Park. Brigham is a lovely village with lots of history, with a mix of old and new houses, of both privately owned and rented accommodation and a vibrant village community. St Bridget’s school is an important part of this community as well as the parish of Brigham.
St. Bridget’s School is a happy school which values every child placed in its care. Happy children learn effectively, we try to ensure that they enter school each day with a smiley face, to set the scene for the rest of the day. Children are welcomed into the school and every effort is made to help them to settle in and feel secure in our ‘community’. The essence of our values and ethos is that every child is valued as an individual, and will continue to be throughout their years with us. We seek to teach the ‘whole child’, not just their academic potential, although this is a major element of our success.
The staff of the school are committed to this philosophy. We work together as a ‘team’ in the true sense of the word, this is one of our principal strengths. We respect and value each other, a trait we seek to pass on to the children. Our recent Church Inspection stated ‘The atmosphere of mutual trust and understanding between pupils and staff has a positive impact on children’s learning and behaviour in school. The inclusive nature of the school enables everyone to flourish’.
