About PCPS

Welcome to Ponteland Community Primary School! We are an ‘outstanding school where children thrive’ [Ofsted 2008, Ofsted 2013] and continue to develop the school with our School Council, Parents’ Forum and Trustees. Children have said they ‘feel they have developed as people’; Ofsted and School Improvement Partner say the school ‘permeates positivity and calm’. Our pupils say that they like to be fit and healthy and that is what makes them happy which makes our Platinum Gamesmark accreditation so important to everyone. You are welcome to browse around our website and contact me if you would like to meet, chat or have a ‘real-life’ tour of school. Dr Caroline Pryer

A vision for Ponteland Community Primary School:

We take as our vision the following paraphrase from St. John’s Gospel:

‘… in order that they may have life and have it abundantly.’ (John 10:10)

Open Events – Come and see our wonderful school in action!!
