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. 


Miss Plunkett and Miss Birdsall teach in Heron Class.  Miss Plunkett is usually in school every morning, and every afternoon except a Wednesday.  She teaches English, Maths, History, Georgraphy, Spanish, ICT, Music and Art.  Miss Birdsall is usually in school on a Monday and a Wednesday. She teaches English, Maths and Science.


Mrs Ryan, Miss Plunkett and Miss Birdsall work together to share expertise and meet the needs of all our children, which is why you might find Miss Plunkett or Miss Birdsall 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 BoneMiss Chapman and Miss Osmond provide classroom support across the whole school, supporting all our pupils in different areas of their learning. Mrs Bone is usually based in our Early Years Class (Owl Class) with Miss Chapman, and Miss Osmond is usually based in Heron Class.

On a Wednesday afternoon our children are coached by specialists in football, rugby or tennis.


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!  


Mrs Wyld and Mrs Liddle provide our delicious school lunches, look out for opportunities to join us and try one of our lovely meals.  


Mr Davison 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.
