Welcome to Caldew Lea Primary School

Our school has a long and proud tradition of educating the children of west Carlisle for 125 years now: we are a school which is truly at the heart of the community it serves. As a high-quality staff team, we are committed to providing an exciting, vibrant and relevant education for our fantastic children. We believe in the potential of each and every child; every day we strive to ensure all of our children are given the life chances they need to ‘be the best they can be’. 

Caldew Lea joined Cumbria Education Trust in October 2019. This exciting development in our school history enables us to work positively and purposefully in collaboration with our partner Trust Primary Schools to secure the very best outcomes for our children. Our shared values of ‘Respect, Responsibility and Resilience’ are the foundation of all we do.
