Silloth Primary School

An Outstanding Primary School - Ofsted 2017

Children Come First


Silloth Primary School is a very special place where each and every

child is an important part of our school family and where children come first. 

Silloth’s children are our future and as such must be nurtured, cared for and educated to the highest standards. This is what we aim to achieve.  We have very high standards of behaviour too, that ensures your child is given the best possible opportunity to learn in

a happy, safe and calm environment. 

Your child’s happiness is at the heart of everything we do. A happy child will learn well and reach his or her true potential.

Silloth Primary School is not just about subjects, although, of course these are a very important part of school, it’s about life experiences and enjoyment; it’s about friendship and personal challenges; it’s about learning about yourself and achieving more than you thought possible; it’s about relationships and commitment and it’s about fun and laughter, of which there is lots, all day long!

Your child will be offered a wealth of opportunities and experiences during their time with us. We hope to prepare them well for their future education and give them an insight into the world around them.

A strong partnership between school and home is of the utmost importance to us. It is by working together that we can move forward successfully.  We will always welcome you into school and there are many occasions and events throughout the year when the success and achievements of the children are on display for all to see.  Don’t miss out on these occasions, they should be treasured.

We will always strive to solve any problems as quickly as possible and remember the earlier you alert us to your concerns, the sooner a solution will be found.  Please help us to help you and your child.

I look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with you, working together for your child.

'Pupils in all year groups make substantial and sustained progress. Children start Nursery with skills and abilities that are slightly lower than those expected for their age. They leave Year 6 with outcomes that are above the national average in reading, writing and mathematics.'

(Ofsted 2017)

Silloth Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare and well-being of its pupils.  All adults working or volunteering within the school will be required to undergo an Enhanced Disclosure & Barring Service (DBS) check and have references received and followed-up before any offer of a position/role will be made.

'The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. All staff are vigilant and well trained. Leaders ensure that staff keep their knowledge up to date, including how to prevent pupils from radicalisation and extremism. The safeguarding lead has a very good understanding of any issues of particular concern and has ensured that staff have received additional training in these areas.'
