We achieved A "GOOD" Ofsted inspection in April 2024  Please click HERE for our most recent Ofsted report.

'Pupils love coming to school regularly. Reading is at the heart of the curriculum. Texts are carefully selected to match with pupils’ studies in other subjects, such as science and geography. They also draw on the farming background of many pupils.' 

'The behaviour and attitudes of pupils are a significant strength. Pupils are kind and respectful to each other, and enthusiastic in their learning. They ask enquiring questions from an early age. Pupils feel safe in school and know there is always someone to talk to.'

The official start of the school day is 8:50am with official end time being 3pm.

A typical week is, therefore, 30hrs and 50 minutes.

The white paper Opportunity for all: strong schools with great teachers for your child sets an expectation that all state-funded mainstream schools will deliver a minimum length of school week of 32.5 hours as soon as they can. Here at Longtown, we are consulting on this matter and new timings for the school day will be in place by September 2024..
