An Inspiring Place To Be

Green Lane Church of England Primary School has the highest educational aspirations for each and every learner. We combine academic excellence with a caring, nurturing environment that sees our pupils achieve exceptional results. We are more than just a school, we are a family. In our school everyone succeeds, we ensure that each and every one of our learners leaves our school ready to carry on their educational journey with the highest levels of attainment and with the highest of respect for their friends, their peers, their teachers and their community.

In August 2023 the school was delighted to become part of the Durham and Newcastle Diocesan Learning Trust. As an academy school we can share expertise and ideas with others in the academy in order to further improve the education which we offer to our children.

In February 2023 the school was inspected by Ofsted and achieved a grading of good. The opening sentences of the report sums up what our school is all about: Pupils at Green Lane are confident and articulate. They feel happy and safe in school.

In October 2021 we were delighted when Mr Goffee was announced as the winner of the Headteacher of The Year Award at the Northern Echo’s Education Award, recognising the way our school supported the community during such a difficult period for us all.

In July 2019 the school was judged as being in the top 5% of Church of England schools nationally with a judgement of ‘Excellent’ from SIAMS. 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.

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. Seven core Christian values 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
