School Life

Mrs Ryan is Headteacher and Early Years co-ordinator, she teaches Owl Class each morning and some afternoons when their main focus is English and Maths within the Early Years Curriculum.  Mrs Ryan is also available for our Parent and Toddler session on a Thursday morning. (Not currently running due to Coronavirus)


Miss Plunkett and Miss Pörksen  teach in Robin (and Heron) Class.  Miss Plunkett is usually in school Tuesday, Wednesday morning, Thursday and Friday.  She teaches English, Maths, History, Georgraphy, Spanish, ICT, Music and Art.  Miss Pörksen is usually in school on a Monday and a Wednesday. She teaches English, Maths and Science.


Mrs Ryan, Miss Plunkett and Miss Pörksen work together to share expertise and meet the needs of all our children, which is why you might find Miss Plunkett or Miss Pörksen in Owl Class One or Mrs Ryan in Heron Class! Our children also might work with any teacher or in either classroom, depending on the topic or subject being taught. 


Mrs McCann is at the hub of all we do.  You will find her in the office in the mornings, so if you need to contact school, mornings are the best time!  

Mr Taylor is our cleaner in charge and can be seen around school in the mornings and in the evenings, and is also a lunchtime supervisory assistant so in school over lunchtime too!


We enjoy taking part in a variety of activities and often have specialists from outside school to work alongside us. We also work closely with the schools in the Alnwick Partnership of Schools. Wooler First School and Glendale Middle School and the Cheviot Early Years Hub.
