Welcome to Plumpton School

Plumpton - a happy, safe and caring school where everyone is valued

Welcome to our website!

By browsing the content you will be able to find out all about our school as well as keep up to date with all our exciting news and events.

As Headteacher I am immensely proud of our village school which achieves so much for our pupils. We pride ourselves on being a happy, safe and caring school where everyone is valued. This is a result of good relationships between our school community; pupils, staff, parents and governors.

Our school has fantastic indoor and outdoor areas which enable us to provide a relevant and adventurous curriculum. This stimulating, challenging atmosphere provides every opportunity for our pupils to grow in confidence, develop and succeed, whilst learning independence and respect for others. This is supported by our Values Education which threads itself through all aspects of our school life.

We are a member of the Rural Penrith Cluster of schools. As a cluster of schools we work closely together to provide excellent primary education across the area. The other schools in our cluster are Calthwaite, Greystoke, Armathwaite, Skelton, Stainton, Lazonby, Langwathby, Kirkoswald, Patterdale and Penruddock.

Whether you are an existing parent/carer or if you would like to arrange a visit I would be delighted to welcome you to our school.

I look forward to meeting you.

Sarah Penny
