Welcome to St Cuthbert’s Primary School. Our school is housed in a beautiful Victorian building in the heart of Pateley Bridge, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
We are passionate at St Cuthbert’s about nurturing children so that they flourish into a caring, confident and resilient young person who has a love of learning.
Our core values and Christian values of CHAMPS (Choices/Responsibility, Honesty/Compassion, Achievement/Wisdom, Perseverance/Courage and Safety) are at the heart of our school and underpin a culture that enables our children to know they are of immense worth.
As part of The Upper Nidderdale Primary Federation, we benefit from being part of an outward looking organisation and have opportunities to learn collaboratively and access specialist teaching beyond an individual school’s scope. Pupils come together frequently with peers from their own year group to access specialist teaching in subjects such as PE, music and PSHE.
We pride ourselves on our knowledge of our children. We work hard to know every child, to know their strengths, interests and next steps, so that learning is always challenging and exciting.
The staff and Governors are unwavering in their commitment to children’s learning within our federation. The excellent curriculum encourages children to develop their knowledge and learn more through well sequenced programmes of learning – see our curriculum pages!
Our teachers and curriculum leaders, across the federation, meet at least once a week to drive, support and challenge each other to be the best they can be – to make a difference in the lives of the children. We are proud of our school and we hope you can see why.
