Our Vision

Petteril Bank School will offer each child an aspirational, all round, forward thinking, first class education based on traditional values.

Respect, resilience and responsibility are at the core of all that we do. We want to inspire every child to be the best they can be.

Our school will teach valuable life skills, provide an array of exciting extra curricula opportunities for all children and offer a caring, happy and inclusive working environment where pupils are taught to be independent, responsible and well-rounded members of the local community.

In short, we offer a firm foundation for life.

Our Values

Our shared values of ‘Respect, Responsibility and Resilience’ are the foundation of all we do; always encouraging friendship, kindness, empathy, respect, good humour and teamwork.

Petteril Bank School joined Cumbria Education Trust in November 2022. This exciting development in our school history enables us to work positively and purposefully in collaboration with our partner Trust Primary Schools to secure the very best outcomes for our children.

Promoting British Values

In accordance with The Department for Education we aim to actively promote British values in schools to ensure young people leave school prepared for life in modern Britain. Pupils are encouraged to regard people of all faiths, races and cultures with respect and tolerance and understand that while different people may hold different views about what is ‘right’ and ‘wrong’, all people living in Britain are subject to its law.

The Key Values are:

  • democracy
  • rule of law
  • individual liberty
  • mutual respect
  • tolerance of those of different faiths and beliefs
