Mel Eastwood
Interim Head

Welcome to Yanwath Primary School. We are part of the Cumbria Education Trust and I am very proud to share with you all of the wonderful opportunities and developments that are taking place at our school.

Our school is truly at the heart of the local community and our children are enthusiastic and motivated to be the best they possibly can be. Our values of respect, responsibility and resilience underpin daily life for the whole community and we strongly believe in providing a broad range of experiences and learning opportunities for all. As Headteacher, nothing makes me more proud than seeing the children making personalised progress – flourishing in a safe and supportive environment. I am passionate about reading and hope that I promote and encourage a love of books in all – this is certainly my intention!

I am very fortunate to work alongside an incredibly dedicated and energetic staff – we share a common understanding of the aims and values of Yanwath and together, alongside the successful partnerships we have with our parents/carers, we are committed to nurturing and supporting all of our children.

The journey ahead is an exciting one and I am privileged to lead the school at this time.
