"Inspiring children to succeed"

David

Welcome to Furness Primary School's website

Furness Primary School aims to provide a safe and positive atmosphere which stimulates a working environment and where children can achieve high standards through a solid foundation of teaching across a creative and broadly balanced curriculum. We endeavour to provide all of our children with the skills needed to develop positive attitudes, where mutual respect, values and sensitivity are nurtured within a culturally diverse community.

Some year 6 children will be having cycling traing on the week commencing 13th. Level 2 teaches children how to grow more confident with each turn of the pedal. Instructors will lead riders onto quiet roads, to experience “real” cycling. Level 2 can feel like the biggest step for children – it’s cycling on the actual road! But with instructors on hand, your child will feel confident and safe in no time at all.

Global Citizenship Week

Global citizenship week
jubilee 2022

As part of our school celebrations for British Science Week 2022, many pupils entered a national competition - Logo Lift Off - in which they were asked to design a logo for satellites that will be launched from a new UK spaceport next year. 

We were delighted to hear that out of over 10,000 entries, Rion Qamili's logo shone through and he was chosen as one of the shortlisted entries for our region!

As one of the competition's special runners up, Rion received a personalised certificate from the UK Space Agency and special congratulations from the panel of judges - all leading figures in UK space science and technology - well done Rion!

We hope Rion and all the pupils who entered the competition learnt about the key role of small satellites in helping to monitor climate change from space, had fun coming up with their logo designs and have been inspired to keep learning about climate change and space.

The Clean Air Campaign

Mums for Lungs was founded by Jemima Hartshorn and friends when they were walking the streets of Brixton and South London with their small babies in 2017. Something felt wrong: these big smelly cars so close to tiny kids. 

Reading about air pollution made them realise it has irreversible health impacts on children and others. They felt that not enough was happening across London and the UK to change this, so they decided to turn anger and anxiety into action and start campaigning. 

Four years later, they are going stronger than ever, despite being primarily volunteers juggling day jobs and kids. Their flagship project is the School Streets campaign to close roads near schools at drop-off and pick-up times. It has already provided thousands of parents with advice on how to campaign and made it into The Times’ Clean Air Manifesto.
