Dear Parents, Carers and Friends of Appleby Primary School,
May I take this opportunity to send you a warm welcome to our school.
As Headteacher, my main aim is to ensure that every child at Appleby Primary School has the opportunity to reach their full potential academically, socially, physically, emotionally, spiritually and morally. I understand that the personal development of all our children plays a significant part in their ability to learn and achieve.
I aim to provide an education which will give each child opportunities to explore and develop their own values and beliefs, spiritual awareness, high standards of personal behaviour, a positive and caring attitude to other people, an understanding of their social and cultural traditions and an appreciation of the diversity and richness of both our British culture and the cultures of others. I aim to embed this through all aspects of school life.
I place learning at the heart of everything. I believe that education is a partnership between the home and school, and where this link is strong children have more opportunities to excel.
I look forward to working with you for the very best education for your family.
Rachel E. Pearson (Mrs)
