Our aim is to challenge and empower all the children who come to Derwentwater and to develop their talents, academic, artistic, sporting and social, to the full. We aim to provide our children with skills, knowledge and life experiences which will support them in becoming succesful fulfilled adults. As a school we aim to make a real difference to our children's lives we provide our children with a strong education driven by our values. As a school we value: resilience, individuality, co-operation, respect, curiosity, courage, responsibility and independence. Each month of the school year we will have a focus value, which the children will be introduced to in an assembly and have the opportunity to apply it in thir learning.
