Welcome Messages

Welcome from Headteacher

I would like to wish you a warm welcome to Pittington Primary School. 

Our school is very a special place, at the very heart of our local community.  Here at Pittington Primary School, we have a hugely committed team who strive to create the best education for your children whilst they are members of our school family. We are so very proud of our wonderful children, who are at the heart of everything that we do.

The needs and wellbeing of the children are paramount in the life and decision making within our school. Our curriculum has been carefully planned with the national curriculum statutory expectations in mind, but more importantly with a strong focus on providing the children with exciting, creative and meaningful learning experiences, which fosters their enthusiasm for learning and helps them to grow and develop positively in a variety of ways.

We are committed to working in partnership with parents and carers as partners in their children’s education to ensure your children are safe, happy and valued and find school a positive and rewarding experience.

To all those that are considering our school please come and visit us; to those that have chosen our school, thank you for trusting us with your child's education.

Welcome from year 6

Welcome to our school website! We want to tell you what it is like to be a pupil at our amazing school!

Our experience at Pittington has been fabulous; Pittington Primary School is one of the best schools you could go to. We have many fantastic memories of our time here.

The staff have great personalities and are approachable. They are really understanding and they are always willing to help you out. They don't make lessons boring - they add some humour to them which makes it more interesting to learn. They also found a way to keep us learning during lockdown. Our head teacher (Miss Wigham) is kind and cares for everyone.

The pupils here are friendly, hardworking and trustworthy. Break times are fun and energetic and if you are feeling lonely, there will always be someone there to play with you. We have Buddies to assist us at playtimes.

We are taught a wide range of intriguing subjects which gives us a broad perspective for the future. Maths and English are taught daily. If you are fascinated by music, Pittington is the place to go. The instruments which we have the opportunity to play include cornets, trombone, violin, baritone and trumpets. We also have a variety of after school clubs, ranging from fencing to booster groups as well as fitness, football and history clubs, to name just a few.

There are so many things that happen here at Pittington. We have Pittington Power Savers which monitors energy consumption around the school. Our School Council listens carefully to our opinion and the Web Watchers group reminds us to stay safe online.

In Year 6, you have the opportunity to apply to become House Captain. If you wish to do this, you need to write a speech and deliver it to the whole school who then votes for the most worthy House Captain for each of our four teams: Adolphus, Hallgarth, Lawrence and Hill. These are named after local landmarks. If you decide to come here, perhaps you could be a leader too.

Why don't you come and join us at Pittington Primary School for a unique experience?
