Welcome to our School Website!
In our small community school, we aim to provide a warm, enjoyable, caring atmosphere in which children can learn and succeed. We are committed to working with parents to create a partnership to enable the children to flourish.
We think that our school is very special and believe that children have the right to a lively, interesting and varied education which allows them to develop. That's why the children play a large part in planning their learning activities.
Our school is set in beautiful, spacious grounds, which are an ideal setting for children to interact, play and expand their knowledge and understanding.
The school is situated in the village of Riding Mill, approximately 6 miles east of Hexham.
As a Church school we have links with the village church St James Church.com and we uphold the Christian ethos at all times. We welcome people of all faiths and none, and promote understanding, respect and celebration for all.
