Welcome to Milnthorpe Primary School

Tuesday 5th January: Covid 19 Update:

Please note school will be open for Key Workers and vulnerable children until further notice. Please email admin@milnthorpe.cumbria.sch.uk if you require a place with details of the times and days you require.


On behalf of the staff, children and governors I would like to warmly welcome you to the Milnthorpe Primary School website. I hope you enjoy looking around our website and that it gives you a flavour of the enriching experiences that are available to children in our school.

Our aim is to ensure that all of our children are able to achieve their full potential; that they become successful learners, confident individuals and that they leave us ready for the next stage in their learning journey.

The governors and staff of Milnthorpe Primary School fully recognise the responsibilities and duty placed upon them to promote the welfare of all pupils and ensure they are safeguarded from harm. We believe that the partnership between home and school is central to meeting this. As parents and carers we encourage you to take an active role in your child’s education throughout their time here at Milnthorpe Primary School.

I consider it a privilege to be the Head Teacher of such a vibrant, fully inclusive school, with children who have a thirst for learning and a staff team who are dedicated and passionate; I hope you enjoy finding out about Milnthorpe Primary School and all the wonderful experiences and opportunities we have to offer.

Prospective parents are warmly invited to visit our school and to experience what life would be like for a child here. 

Andrew Hyde

Head Teacher

17.11.20 COVID-19 Update

Milnthorpe Primary School is in receipt of the Covid catch-up grant.

The additional funding is being used to employ additional teaching assistant support in school.

Additional support has been introduced into Year 6, on a full-time basis, to provide support where identified to allow pupils to catch up as a result of missing education during the first lockdown.

Additional support has been introduced into Year 4 for two full-days per week to support children identified as having regressed during the lockdown period.

The introduction of the additional support has allowed further opportunities for existing teaching assistant staff to support identified groups of children, specifically in Year 1, Year 5 and Year 3 over and above their normal support commitments.

In addition to the above measures we have introduced a time table variation in key stage 2, whereby the morning session has been increased by half an hour – this additional half an hour has been timetabled in each class to address missing curriculum objectives from the previous year. Also, as a result of the inability to have whole school assemblies there has been some capacity to create additional time dedicated to catch-up.

The school has also introduced an earlier opening time over a longer period of time. i.e. Opening school at 8:40am and allowing children to arrive up until 9:05am. This additional time has allowed focused early work to support catch up primarily on key maths and English objectives.

Pupils in school have regular assessment (half-termly) and teachers discuss every child’s progress, also half termly, with the head teacher to identify children requiring additional support in order to catch up. These children are then monitored to ensure gap closure is attained.

Please contact Mr Hyde on 015395 62344 with any questions or queries.
