About Us

Headteacher’s Message: On behalf of the children, staff and governors of Corporation Road Community Primary School, I would like to welcome you to our school. We are very proud of our school, our children and our teaching team and the quality of the education we provide. The progress that our children and the school has made over the past three years since I have been Headteacher has been outstanding. This includes the validated national assessment information confirming that pupils who left Year 6 in 2017 and 2018 made well above average progress in reading, writing and mathematics Our ethos is to ensure teaching and learning is centred on ‘all of the children, all of the time’. Underpinning this is a whole school culture, which is clearly focused on supporting and developing the self-image of each child. From the minute you step into the building, the rise in aspirations and expectations and the care and love provided for the pupils is palpable; through the flowers, calm music and relaxing aromas to the attention to detail in displays. Significant alterations have also been made to the internal and external learning environments to support improvements in teaching and learning and better outcomes for all children We are committed to high standards in all areas of the curriculum and all our staff in school have very high expectations of both the children and themselves. We see the school as being at the heart of the community, adopting the moral values and ethics of the cultures and diverse backgrounds of our families. We’ve also had very positive parent and wider community feedback about the school. Our parent questionnaire from February 2018 reported that:

A recent visit from the Lord Lieutenant, Mrs Sue Snowdon and Councillor Lee elicited this response:  I personally work with the school’s health and wellbeing team to ensure that child welfare and safeguarding issues remain a priority. The behaviour and attitudes from our children to learning across school are very good. Our children are polite and courteous, for example they hold doors open for visitors and each other without being prompted. They conduct themselves in a confident, respectful manner. Relationships between adults and pupils are constructive, with positive attitudes to learning and behaviours celebrated in class and whole school. We take care to make sure that our school curriculum also caters for all cultures and faiths, including the promotion of fundamental British values. Children show a strong sense of respect for others’ values and faiths; accepting, celebrating and embracing the range of faiths and religions represented across the school. At Corporation Road Community Primary School, we have high aspirations and always strive to be the best, encouraging our children to take part in opportunities, including life-long learning and career opportunities. The school is part of the Lingfield Education Trust and has a Local Advisory Board. The Governing Body consists of Valerie Johnston, Chair of the Local Advisory Board, Mr. N Blackburn, CEO Lingfield Education Trust, Mr. S Crowther, (Looked After Children & Health & Safety), Mrs. A Pringleton (Headteacher), Mr. J Steel (Safeguarding), Mrs. Chris Archer, Associate Member (Head of Early Years, Darlington Borough Council). I would like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you for your continued support and to let you know that your child’s education and well-being is in safe hands. I will endeavour to ensure your children access the very best teaching we can provide for them in order to guarantee them the best educational outcomes possible, raise their aspirations, better prepare them for their future and the next steps in their educational journey.
