About Us


Low Furness is a small, happy Church of England Primary School in rural south Cumbria. It combines high academic standards with a broad determination to teach the whole child. We prize emotional resilience, social confidence, self awareness and spiritual development just as highly as academic success, and we believe that happy enthusiastic children will always learn better.

Children who attend Low Furness benefit from a broad and interesting curriculum, well equipped grounds including excellent playgrounds, walking track, pond, polytunnels and chicken coop as well as the usual sports and outdoor learning facilities. We get out into our beautiful local landscape at every opportunity: Key Stage 1 has regular Forest School days and the whole school enjoys a range of lake and fell activities in the summer.

The school has a nursery class and teaches children aged from 3 to 11.

Our building was purpose built in the late 90s when three village schools were combined into one, and we are lucky to have a bright, airy interior with varied and useful spaces arranged around a hall big enough for whole-school assemblies and excellent Christmas plays.



Nothing is more important to us. Please see the safeguarding page for information about our approach, who to talk to and what to do if you are concerned about danger to a child.


 Low Furness has high ambitions for all its pupils and expects them to participate and achieve in every aspect of school life. Our commitment to equal opportinities is an important aspect of our overall commitment to being a fully inclusive school. Please see the inclusion page for more details.
