Welcome to Green Lane CE Primary School’s website
Vision and message from the Headteacher
Green Lane Church of England Primary is a rural school in the heart of Teesdale and at the centre of our local community, with an outstanding nursery and initial teacher training centre onsite. In July 2019 the school was judged as being in the top 5% of Church of England schools nationally with a judgement of ‘Excellent’. We offer a fantastic education based around achievement and success in a nurturing, holistic environment. At Green Lane we see the ultimate purpose of education as the promotion of “life in all its fullness” (St John’s Gospel, chapter 10, verse ).
Here education is about more than just academic achievement; it is about developing young people who can flourish in all areas of their lives developing the intellectual, spiritual, moral and physical attributes, becoming proud and respectful members of our community. Our deeply Christian ethos and values are central to the experiences our children have each day as part of ‘Team GL.’
At Green Lane Church of England Primary School we listen to one another and recognise each other’s worth (even when we occasionally disagree!). ‘British Values’ teach that tolerance is essential in our society, reflecting the Archbishop of Canterbury’s encouragement to be honest, loving and faithful. In April 2018 the school conducted an exercise to adopt seven core Christian values which would underpin the life of the school, they are:
Caring – We look after each other, our school and our town
Respectful – We show each other good manners
Forgiving – we show compassion to one another
Honest – We tell the truth
Nurturing – We build each other up to achieve our full potential
Inspiring – We look up to each other with love and kindness
Inclusive – We value everyone
