- Mrs Nicole Spibey

My family and I moved to the area in 2015. Before teaching at Allithwaite, we chose it as the primary school for our three children to attend. I love running and have recently participated in the Lakeland Trails. I also love walking in this beautiful countryside with my family and my dog George.

- Mrs Debbie Osborne

I have lived in Allithwaite for many years and both my children have attended this school. I enjoy working in the office because I get to meet all our children and their families. I especially like it when the children come to show me their good work and get a special sticker. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family and enjoy cooking and gardening.

- Mr Purvin

I have had strong links with Allithwaite School since 1990. Our 3 children were educated here and I have been Allithwaite School Caretaker since January 2008. Being involved in the day to day running of the school, knowing lots of the children, parents and all of the staff, I feel I can be a vital, easily approachable link to the governors. For the last 6 years I have been a foster carer for Cumbria County Council. I enjoy DIY, walking and I am a keen motorsports fan.

- Mrs Taylor

I have worked as a senior teaching assistant for over 10 years, mainly with children with SEN. I am married to John and have two children, Aron and Brandon. When not at school I enjoy reading, and socialising. I am a big Liverpool FC fan and love the colour green and pigs.

I really enjoy helping children understand and learn. For the past 15 years I have supported children who find some aspects of school challenging to ensure that they have an inclusive experience.

Parent's Voice

My son likes being in school so much that he is always excited to go in the morning and reluctant to leave at the end of the day.  The staff are very welcoming, approachable, their teaching interesting and directed at the needs of the children.   Year 1 Parent

Our little boy has always gone to school with a smile on his face.  We know that he will look back on his early years with fondness for years to come. Year 3 Parent

The links to St Mary’s Church are very strong enforcing the Christian ethos. The school is constantly changing and moving with the times. Year 4 Parent
