Our school

Our school is a friendly, happy, vibrant school located in Blyth. Our youngest children are just three years old and can learn with us all the way up to Year Six  (aged 11). 

We have an amazing teaching team and are very proud of how together, with our pupils, parents, governors and staff, we are a community of learners that grow together with the children at the very centre of everything we do. Our curriculum, outdoor provision and teaching is personalised to meet the needs and interests of our pupils and through our wealth of teaching expertise we celebrate all aspects of the National Curriculum with children and in the learning environment. Our caring and supportive ethos is designed with our families at the heart of our thoughts and we aspire for our children to leave us as learners who are motivated to learn more . This continues to grow with the help of our school parliament and parent forum.

We are a fully inclusive school and welcome families from all backgrounds.  We are proud of the support we offer for children with special educational needs and their families.  We work closely with external agencies to ensure the best possible support is in place.  You are very welcome to contact our SENDco to discuss this further.

As a community school we offer a range of support including a food and clothing bank, community hub, Citizens Advice Support and a developing Young Carers hub, EAL support and parental learning centre.

Croftway Primary School has welcomed a number of children seeking sanctuary over the past few years.  We are very proud of all that the children have achieved.  We will continue to do all we can to support them and their families and we know that as a school we are all the richer for their presence.

We are working towards gaining the School of Sanctuary award to enhance our commitment to being safe and welcoming to all. This includes people whose lives were in danger in their own country, who have troubles at home or are just looking for a space of safety.

A School of Sanctuary is a school which helps its pupils, staff and wider community to understand what it means to be seeking sanctuary and to extend a welcome to everyone as equal, valued members of the school community. It is a place for all to feel safe, seen, supported and included.  We will continue to strive to do all we can, to make sure children who are seeking sanctuary, receive the support they need.

We are a University College school and regularly take advantage of our local talents and business to promote children’s aspirations and knowledge of a wide range of careers. We work in partnership with our local schools to promote a wide range of sporting activities and competitions.
