Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to Dearham Primary School

Set on the edge of rural Cumbria, Dearham Primary School truly is a special place.  The warm and friendly atmosphere of this vibrant village school welcomes you from the moment you step inside and our students are confident, well-behaved and respectful.  There is a culture of kindness and the school values permeate through everything that we do.  Our children thrive in a safe, caring and stimulating environment.

Underpinning our rich, broad and balanced curriculum is the belief that every child can achieve.  We nurture and inspire every individual to be the best that they can be, setting high expectations and offering strong support.  While ensuring academic excellence and challenge, at Dearham Primary School we are committed to developing the whole child, providing quality pastoral care and opportunities for pupils to develop the skills that they need to be successful citizens.  Throughout the year, the curriculum is enriched with both day and residential trips, themed days, sporting events, theatrical productions and special visitors.  The School Council ensures that pupil voice is heard and our Head Pupils, Digital Leaders and Sports Captains demonstrate excellent pupil leadership skills.

Dearham SchoolDearham Primary School became part of the Changing Lives Learning Trust in 2020.  Both pupils and staff benefit from being part of a wider community, all with the same aspirational goals, making the most of the opportunities for collaboration that this offers us.

I am immensely proud to be the Headteacher of Dearham Primary School, a happy and exciting place to learn and work, where all pupils, staff and wider community members flourish.  I hope that you enjoy finding our more about our school through our website and will be happy to welcome you to the school for a visit, so that you can see first-hand what makes us special.
