Welcome to Allendale Primary
You may already be familiar with Allendale Primary School, having children who are in other age groups but there are some parents for whom their child starting school in September is a new experience. Usually the children will have had visits with their parents, pre-school staff and on their own to gradually become familiar with their new school, staff, classroom, dinner time in the school hall, sports hall and grounds. It's a huge milestone in a child's life to start 'big school' so we hope that the information and videos on this page will help you to feel more reassured to start the preparations for September.
The covid pandemic has meant that parents have not had the access and visits to school as was normal before. We are starting to develop a more normal approach to school and hope to invite parents to increasingly more events in 2022-23.
If anything good has come out of the pandemic it is to reaffirm what a strong, generous and supportive community Allendale Primary School is and that your child will be joining a staff that will cherish and nurture your child to support them to grow and develop.
