Langwathby School is a Good School for Learning. We are proud of the progress and achievements of our children. We encourage the children to have high standards in English and Mathematics whilst also developing creativity, independence and self-esteem.


Langwathby School is a ‘Villages School’. It was founded originally as a Church of England school in the 1860s. In 1944 it became “Voluntary Controlled”, i.e. run by the Local Authority but still a Church School, maintaining an overt Christian ethos. Around 1970 other small local schools closed (some C of E, and others not) leaving Langwathby as the only school in a large rural area serving many different villages and hamlets. Today children attending Langwathby School come from the village of Langwathby, many of the surrounding villages and the town of Penrith.


Langwathby School is a Church School. We are also a community-based school where families have differing views on religion and the Church. The Christian Ethos of the school is shown in values based on Christian teaching.


Children are encouraged to appreciate the wonders of the world around them and express this in creativity and art. They learn about their impact on the world and how to act as responsible stewards of the environment. They are encouraged to think of others and have opportunities to actively help, through taking part in fund-raising and sharing their skills and talents with the community.

Local Offer Description

Our aim is that each child is entitled to the same curriculum experiences, activities and opportunities provided by the school at a level which is appropriate to their needs, interests and abilities. This includes in-school and extra-curricular activities. We follow the Code of Practice on the Identification, Assessment and Support of Special Needs. Mrs Pugh is the Special Needs Co-Ordinator (SENCO). She is responsible, with the class teachers, for the monitoring of progress for children with Special Educational Needs. There is also a governor who takes an interest in children with special needs.

We try to help by matching each child's work with their individual needs and abilities, within their own class, rather than by separating them from their classmates. But where we feel that some close individual support would be helpful, children are able to work in a small group, or on a one-to-one basis. If your child was felt to be in need of this kind of support we would invite you to come into school and discuss the way ahead with your child's teacher. Or if you were concerned about the progress of your child, and felt that some extra help would be beneficial, do contact the SENCO or Headteacher at school.
