Ponteland Community Primary School Awards
As Ponteland Middle School we were involved in overseas projects and 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.”

Former National Support School and Teaching School
Ponteland Community Middle School became a National Support School in July 2014 and a cohort 5 Teaching School, in recognition of the outstanding teaching, learning and training in the school. Teaching Schools moved to central hub schools in 2021. The National Teaching School designation gave 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. We continue to offer in house bespoke training to teachers and teaching assistants and sustain the supportive ethos as our legacy.
