Due to the good quality of teaching and the nurturing school community, pupils are well prepared for the next stage in their education by the time they leave school.(Ofsted)
It was impressive to see so many parents settle to read with their children at the start of the school day. This is developing children’s love of books and stories and provides a really calm start to the day. (Ofsted)
You ensure that teachers and teaching assistants are provided with high-quality training and coaching so that staff work as a cohesive team with pupils at the heart of all they do. Your senior leadership team is pioneering the use of mobile technology in many aspects of school life. (Ofsted)

Dalton St Mary's CofE Primary School was last inspected by the Diocese of Carlisle's Board of Education on 12th March 2020.
A SIAMS Inspection asks: How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish? At our most recent inspection our effectiveness was graded as Excellent. The school is a loving family where all practice and decision making is underpinned by Jesus’ command to ‘Love your neighbour as yourself’’.
This vision is evident in the commitment to serving local and global communities. It results in investment to support the mental health and wellbeing of all. Strong and supportive Christian leadership from the headteacher results in the school being a rewarding place to learn and work. (SIAMS)
