Green Lane is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England school, and has strong links with St. Mary’s Parish Church in the centre of the town. The children, staff and volunteers are supported in a wide variety of ways to live within the deeply Christian values the school has; this Christian ethos pervades throughout the school, in every room in the school. Our distinctive Christian values 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
We are a welcoming school with a warm, safe and inclusive atmosphere. The pupils’ behaviour is outstanding and our core Christian values sit at the heart of policy and our day to day practice. The school’s vision is ‘Educating for Life in all its Fullness’ (John 10:10).
At Green Lane we aim to deliver an exciting, inspiring, purposeful and challenging curriculum which is broad and balanced and encompasses not only the intellectual, physical and emotional growth of each child, but also their cultural, moral and spiritual development. The school’s ethos is ‘TEAM GL – Together Everyone Achieves More.’
The school has strong links with the Durham and Newcastle Diocese with termly visits supporting its development, such as help with the appointment of the current head in April 2018. Each term our School Council works with the rest of the school population to choose a charity to support.
In May 2016 we met the standards of the Level One UNICEF UK Rights Respecting School Award
