'As one body has many parts, we all belong and have a part to play’ 1 Corinthians 12: 27
Welcome to the Federation of Fountains Earth and St Cuthbert's CE Primary Schools
On behalf of the staff, pupils and governors I would like to wish you a warm welcome to our federation.
Fountains Earth C of E Primary, St Cuthbert's C of E Primary and our Federation Nursery provide the highest quality education for children aged 3 to 11.
We are very proud of our schools and the rich and varied curriculum they offer. Both schools are very special places with a true family feel due to the small numbers on roll and a staff team that care deeply about the communities they serve. We have a strong Christian Ethos and high aspirations for all.
Our vision of 'Learning and Growing Together' provides the framework for education in our federation. Our vision is underpinned by the Christian narrative ‘As one body has many parts, we all belong and have a part to play’ 1 Corinthians chapter 12:27.
This verse reminds us of our role in Christian community, and also gives a vision for our school community, with each person being a unique but important and valued part of our school body.
Our different talents and gifts work together to enrich the learning environment as we learn from each other and grow together in community.
Both schools were inspected by Ofsted in 2017 and were judged as good with many key strengths including outstanding behaviour, personal development and welfare. The perfect environment in which to begin a child's learning journey. Our schools are expecting a SIAMS inspection once lockdown is eased when we can celebrate all that our Federation has to offer.
It is in the first years at school that a sense of fun and enjoyment shapes attitudes to learning for life. We are fortunate to have a federation Nursery where children can learn though play, both indoors and out, with an Early Years specialist qualified teacher and practitioner. Children can start in our nursery from the age of three.
Nidderdale is a beautiful place to learn, we are surrounded by an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and we capitalise on all that our natural surroundings have to offer.
A visit to our schools is the ideal way to discover this for yourself. You would be most welcome! Please contact the school office.
