Message from Mrs Hawkins


  On behalf of the children, staff and governors, we extend a warm welcome to Allendale Primary School. Our standards and expectations are high and we firmly believe that in order for the children to enjoy learning and achieve their best, parents and school should work in partnership; parents are actively encouraged to support different activities, volunteer in school and help children with their homework tasks. We provide a rich and diverse curriculum, which although firmly rooted in basic skills of Maths, Reading and Writing, allows children to explore and develop different interests. Wherever possible, we employ a topic based approach to learning which encompasses individual subjects within an overarching theme. We are excited by and proud of the opportunities that our site presents, including a fully equipped Sports Hall, Wildlife area, ICT suite and Arts room, as well as a dedicated Early Years Unit for Reception and Nursery children, complete with magnificent outdoor adventurous play area. We hope you enjoy exploring our website and gain a flavour of what Allendale Primary School can offer your children.

 Mrs Alison Hawkins (Headteacher).
