Headteacher’s Welcome

From Sarah Davies


Welcome to Yanwath Primary School’s website. We are a rural school, part of Cumbria Education Trust, situated at the gateway to the beautiful Lake District National Park.

As a school, we are committed to excellence, and developing students to become confident, resilient, respectful and voracious learners. Our school has, and continues to develop, a strong learning culture that encourages and celebrates student success. From academic results to sporting events, from extra-curricular opportunities to the arts we provide a vast array of experiences and opportunities for our pupils, enabling them to develop and discover their interests and talents.

At Yanwath, we know that children learn best when they are secure and happy. How a child feels about him/herself is fundamental to their success in learning. Therefore, our aims encompass not only intellectual skills like reading, writing and mathematics but life skills like self-confidence and initiative, perseverance and co-operation.

Our teachers are dedicated, energetic, skilled and caring and support every child to achieve. They continually seek to improve their own practice by reflecting, coaching and seeking professional development opportunities to deliver a curriculum that is of the highest quality. Increasing student achievement, and supporting students to succeed in their learning, is at the heart of all decisions made at our school.

It is my privilege to be Headteacher of Yanwath Primary School and to work with our amazing students, teachers, staff, parents and carers that make up our Yanwath family.

Being part of a wider trust that encompasses a range of schools from across Cumbria, we are fortunate to make links, draw on expertise and provide unique opportunities which enable children to be the very best that they can be!

Kind regards,

Sarah Davies
