Working with primary and secondary schools in the Allerdale and Copeland areas


Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. Ofsted inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.

As such West Cumbria Learning Centre is regularly inspected and the results of those reports are available for anyone to see.

Below are some extracts from our 2015 Ofsted report:

"Staff, parents and pupils hold the centre in high regard." (Ofsted 2015)
"Teaching and support staff work very effectively together to ensure a positive learning atmosphere." (Ofsted 2015)
"Achievement is closely related to pupils’ self-confidence and well-being and there are no significant differences between the achievement of disadvantaged pupils and others." (Ofsted 2015)
"The centre is meticulous in ensuring that the documentation and procedures related to safeguarding are complete and up to date. Leaders place high emphasis on pupils’ safety and are quick to contact and work with other agencies when there is cause for concern." (Ofsted 2015)
"Overall, the centre prepares pupils well for the next phase of their life, be that in mainstream schools, colleges or employment." (Ofsted 2015)
