Welcome to St Bees Village Primary School. I am proud to be Headteacher of this wonderful school which is at the heart of a thriving village community. The staff team are dedicated to the pupils in their care and strive to provide the best possible education which will develop your child both academically and personally; this is done in a safe and welcoming learning environment.  Our pupils work hard, behave well and are happy and friendly. I hope this website gives you an insight into many of the exciting and successful things that happen here every day. However, nothing can beat a visit to our fabulous school, where we can give you a personal tour and show you what we have to offer you and your child.

For our safeguarding policy please go to the Policies and Key Documents section of the website


Our prime responsibility as a school is to ensure that all children are safe.

St Bees Village Primary School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. To achieve our commitment, we will ensure continuous development and improvement of robust safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of safeguarding amongst our staff, governors and volunteers.

 At St. Bees Village School the health, safety and well-being of all our children is of paramount importance to all the adults who work or volunteer here.  All of our children have the right to protection, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity or disability.  They have a right to be safe in our school; this is enhanced by the adoption of the Whole School Behaviour Policy which includes our procedures for preventing and dealing with cases of bullying.

St. Bees Village School regards Child Protection as an essential task of all its staff, governors and visitors/volunteers who come into school. We are committed to protecting children and safeguarding pupils in school.

There is no place for extremist views of any kind in our school, whether from internal sources – pupils, staff, visiting adults, governors etc. or external sources – school community, external agencies or individuals.

Any prejudice, discrimination or extremist views, including derogatory language, displayed by pupils, staff, visitors or parents will always be challenged and, where appropriate, dealt with.  Where misconduct by a teacher is proven, the matter will be referred to the National College for Teaching and Leadership for their consideration.  Misconduct by other staff will be dealt with under normal school disciplinary procedures.

We encourage pupils to respect the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect, and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.  We ensure that partisan political views are not promoted in the teaching of any subject in the school and, where political issues are brought to the attention of the pupils, reasonably practicable steps are taken to offer a balanced presentation of opposing views to pupils.

This is best achieved when we all work together to support the development of the whole child. We pride ourselves on knowing not just about our children’s learning, but about them and their families as individuals and valued members of our school and community.

 We actively support the Government's Prevent agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.

 We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Safeguarding section of our website.

 All adults who work in school have a responsibility to read and understand all safeguarding policies and to act within accordance of the policy at all times.

 All adults in school are expected to read the DfE booklet: Keeping Children Safe in Education.
