Dear Parents and Carers,
On behalf of the children, staff and governors at Gilsland Church of England Primary School I would like to welcome you to our School website.
Gilsland Church of England Primary School is a small, caring school with a real family feel, located in a village setting. Our staff are dedicated to providing a stimulating learning environment where everyone feels valued and safe. By providing a varied and creative curriculum, which engages and challenges our children, and by promoting excellent behaviour, our goal is to enthuse in all our children a desire to learn, as well as care and respect each other.
We believe that education is a partnership between children, staff, parents and the local community, working together so our children love school, are outstanding citizens and ready for their next stage of education. Being a Church of England School, Christian Values underpin all areas of school life. Ours is a happy school, where the success of every child really matters.
We hope that you will enjoy our website and be encouraged to come and visit us and to join our Gilsland Community.
Mrs Lesley Winter

As a result of rigorous and accurate self-evaluation, improvement strategies have been highly effective in bringing about rapid improvement in every aspect of the school's work. This demonstrates the school's outstanding capacity for sustained improvement.
