Greystoke Primary School 

Greystoke is a County Primary School, receiving its finances from the Local Education Authority. It is for all children in the three to eleven years age bracket and there are at present 24 on roll.

The school was founded in 1838 by the Howard Family of Greystoke Castle. The original building, which is still in use, possesses great character. The school was extended to modern amenities, including an infant wet area, cloakrooms and modern toilets. A flexible teaching area was finished in May 2003 and provides adaptable resources and houses our Key Stage Two library.

Due to wining “The Peoples Millions” in November 2007 our playground has been improved to ensure a range of exciting learning opportunities can occur—whatever the weather! The village playing field and hall are close by for games and PE.

The school is situated approximately 4 miles west of Penrith off the B5288 and is in a pleasant rural village location.

Our policy for raising standards is for all our children. Early identification of difficulties and appropriate intervention will give children with SEN the best possible start to their school lives.

Our initiatives are:

  • To improve Literacy and Numeracy through the introduction of target setting.
  • Involve each child in their own assessment and implementation of their Individual Education Plan (IEP)

We aim to cater for the individual learning needs of every child whilst also recognising the need for specialised provision to ensure access to all aspects of the curriculum for all children.

We also recognise that pupils of any ability can underachieve at times. Through matching work to the needs of the children, staff at Greystoke Primary School give children every opportunity to overcome their difficulties.
