Bassenthwaite School 

Our Ethos

Step inside our village school and into a haven for learning. Set in magnificent surroundings, Bassenthwaite Primary School provides a unique learning environment which, whilst preserving its legacy from the 19th century, is resourced and equipped to deliver an action packed stimulating curriculum into the 21st century. 

We aim to present exciting challenges and enriched experiences. Wherever possible we maximise our own external environment creatively to fulfil sporting and curriculum needs. It is our outdoor classroom. Each child benefits from an excellent child/teacher ratio and is supported to develop his or her personal academic potential. 

A very caring family ethos prevails allowing all our children to thrive emotionally and develop good self-esteem and interpersonal skills.

We link with other small schools in the area to provide a comprehensive programme of activities such as outdoor pursuits, residential urban visits, sporting fixtures and theatre visits.

This school provides a broad and balanced curriculum for all children, which is differentiated to meet individual needs and abilities. 

Children may have SEND throughout, or at any time during their school career.  This policy ensures that curriculum planning and assessment takes account of the type and extent of the difficulty experienced by the child. 

Teachers take into account in their planning a child’s special educational needs or disabilities, and the provision made therefore enables them to participate effectively in all curriculum and assessment activities, in addition to broader aspects of school’s life.
