We are a welcoming, friendly school who are proud of our successes and the achievements of all children in our care. Our children enjoy their learning through an innovative and creative curriculum and we provide many opportunities for excellent progress to occur. We strive to meet the needs of all children and ensure we have a warm, happy environment in which children can experience new learning, feeling confident and safe.
We are an average sized primary school of 248 pupils including nursery, which is growing rapidly as our journey continues. Our last Ofsted (April 16) demonstrated our strengths as a good school and recent reviews have shown further improvements.
In November 2018 we became part of Tees Valley Collaborative Trust (TVCT). This has enhanced the growth and development of the school with further opportunities for learning, collaboration and staff and pupil development. The trust is at the beginning of an exciting journey and has great understanding of pupil needs and specialist provision. From September 2019, the school was commissioned to lead and support the local authority in providing education for SEMH children with a 6 place provision called ‘The Haven’.
Errington is an inclusive school and we pride ourselves on how we integrate, support, and nurture children with specific needs. We feel that children come to school to learn, develop skills for life and experience exciting opportunities to make them confident in applying themselves and achieve more.
We have strong links with the local community and have become a very well-respected establishment for education. A great achievement for our school is our strong welcoming ethos, which we promote continuously. All visitors in school comment on the happy atmosphere, interaction and involvement of children in their learning. Our children are stimulated, enthused and motivated by a high standard of teaching and learning from nursery through to year 6. As a school we encourage people to be involved in the learning of our children at all stages and offer support and displays of work so that people feel a part of our community.
Our local governing body and senior management team are strong capacity and all members of staff are passionate and committed to the vision of the school and enhancing teaching and learning to help children succeed and have confidence.
