Welcome to Furness Primary School

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.

mental health awareness week

Dear Parents and Carer’s,

Furness Primary School and Place2Be are very excited that next week is Mental Health Awareness Week.

This year’s theme is ‘KINDNESS’

We know that our children and their families understand and demonstrate kindness on a regular  basis.

  We would like to celebrate the week by asking our children to award a

 Place2Be – Virtual Kindness Cup

Or a

Kindness Certificate

to acknowledge children, teachers, parents/carers and other individuals who have made a positive difference through their kindness at this challenging time.

Please share images of your cups or certificates through DB Primary with your teachers.

Please explore activities and templates for the ‘Kindness’ cup through the link below.

Car Free Day and Safety Week

In February we had a car free day. Children who scoot, cycle, walk or use any other means of transportation with a zero carbon footprint could grab a free snack from the KS2 playground. KS1 children were also invited.

There was an Air quality Assembly at 9:05 where children will learnt about ways to improve the quality of the air we breath in. Children who cycled to school that day also took part in as bike club session at lunch time. 

In the afternoon there was a workshop for year 6 children about air pollution and how the impact can be measured in plants. 

At the end of the day, parents and teachers could also sign up for cycling training for adults.


Children's Mental Health Week


It's Children's Mental Health Week. The importance of looking after our emotional wellbeing from an early age is the focus of this year's Children's Mental Health Week. Organised by children's mental health charity Place2Be, this year's theme is 'Find your Brave', and the charity hopes to help children find the courage they need to face their challenges. Furness has been exploring ways to help young people strengthen their mental health, building their confidence and resilience.

School trip

Children in Year 5 have been learning about 'Mountains Volcanoes and Earthquakes' in geography, which culminated in a trip to Parliament Hill


Children should bring PE kits to school on Monday and take them home on Friday.
