Welcome to Ireleth St Peter’s CofE Primary School (ISP)

It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as headteacher of such a wonderful school.

Ireleth St Peter’s has endless positive qualities; all of which have been recognised by Ofsted as ‘Good’ in July 2017 and ‘Good’ in our Statutory Inspection for Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) in 2019. Ireleth St Peter’s is a very unique and special school which is renowned for its family feel and community involvement. We are very fortunate to have a wonderful building and fantastic outdoor spaces including a purpose built outdoor classroom. At Ireleth, we strive to provide a wealth of experiences that enable all of our pupils to succeed. Within our school community, everyone matters and feels valued. Both governors and staff will work closely to ensure our Christian values are embraced throughout our school in a caring respectful environment. Our pupils feel happy, safe and secure and are nurtured to develop academically, socially and emotionally.

Due to our small class sizes, excellent resources and dedicated staff, all pupils make excellent progress during their time at school. They leave Ireleth St Peter’s as confident and hardworking individuals, well prepared for their journey in life. As headteacher, I am immensely proud of all my pupils and staff, and the school community we belong to.

I hope that you find the information on this website useful and informative. Should you require any further information or would like to arrange a visit, please don’t hesitate to contact the school office on 01229 462753 or admin@irelethst-peters.cumbria.sch.uk

I look forward to welcoming you into our happy and successful school.

Mrs R. E. McFarlane
