Ponteland Community Primary School Awards

Overseas Projects

Ponteland Middle School’s involvement in overseas projects and teaching of global issues have been significant and are ongoing. Staff at Ponteland Middle have forged links with organisations in Kenya, a Water for Women borehole project in Maasai Mara and a Viagenco Clinic for HIV/Aids in Mbita. Headteacher Caroline Pryer said: “This award is a testament to the consistent kindness, love and financial support given by trustees, parents, teachers and children to our friends in Kenya.”

ESFA Danone Nations Schools’ Cup for Girls
Congratulations once again to Ponteland Academy on becoming National Champions 2018 in the ESFA Danone Nations Schools’ Cup for Girls competition at the Ricoh Arena on Saturday 19 May 2018. The winners of the Inter District cup took part in the Danone Nations Cup World Finals, competing against other Nations’ winners as Team England. The Danone’s centenary celebrations, hosted in Barcelona in October 2019 (Danone yogurt’s historic birth place), brought together two Danone Nations Cup World Finals (2018 & 2019, district and girls). For the first time ever, Team England was represented by four teams including the PCMS team, who were the first ever English Girls’ side to represent at a World Final! What’s more, it paid tribute not only to the thousands of young athletes from around the world battling it out on the field, but also to Danone’s 100 years of bringing health through food to as many people as possible.
Ponteland Community Middle School became a National Support School in July 2014 as a cohort 5 teaching School, in recognition of the outstanding teaching, learning and training in the school. The National Teaching School designation gives outstanding schools a leading role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and headteachers, as well as contributing to raising standards through school to school support, in our case we offer bespoke packages to meet the need of the supported school.
