Welcome Messages

Welcome from Headteacher

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

We pride ourselves on providing a safe, secure and happy environment for all our community of children, parents, carers and staff. I am very proud to be Headteacher at this successful school. All children are unique and everyone has skills and talents that need to be nurtured. The children's needs are at the centre of school life; our curriculum has been designed to allow children to investigate, explore and develop a love of learning in order to reach their full potential. We work closely in partnership with parents, carers and other agencies so that all children can reach their full potential. To all those that are considering the 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 (Mrs Lee) 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?
