Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to Appleby Primary School.


It is our pleasure to extend a warm welcome to Appleby Primary School. We are a busy but friendly school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.


At Appleby we appreciate the importance of your child’s formative years at school and strive to create a setting that is warm, welcoming and supportive whilst challenging children to become independent life-long learners.


Appleby Primary School offers the best of both worlds—a caring and nurturing atmosphere coupled with high standards of education. Our teachers, pupils and their families form excellent positive relationships; working in partnership to learn together. Coupled with innovative and creative approach to the curriculum, this  ensures that our pupils enjoy coming to school and are inspired with an appreciation of learning which will endure.


It is no surprise that these strengths have been highlighted by Ofsted:


  • Committed to enriching opportunities and broadening horizons
  • Children love coming to school and enjoy learning
  • Leaders endeavour to ensure that pupils are in the right place emotionally so that they are ready to learn
  • Pupils thrive in the nurturing environment that staff have created
  • Leaders have developed a broad and balanced curriculum which ignites pupils’ interests.
  • The school continues to look to the future and is committed to ensuring children are at the heart of a vibrant, progressive and rewarding community.


We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website. Should you not find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us and arrange a visit so that you can see for yourself why we are so proud of our thriving school.
