Welcome to Northern Primary School.
On behalf of the governors, staff and pupils may we welcome you to the website of Northern Primary School. We hope the information on this website gives you some idea of our daily life and work.
During our most recent OFSTED inspection in October 2018, the inspector confirmed that Northern continues to be a 'good' school. The inspector commented that the strong leadership and high-quality teaching over time ensures that attainment in reading, writing and maths is above the national average. She stated that the quality of teaching overall is strong. The inspector also commented that the children make good progress in the Early Years and benefit from a stimulating and enchanting outdoor area. The inspector also noted that pupils behave well around school and outside.
Parents comment on the sense of community in the school and this is something that we are all very proud of; why not visit us to experience this yourself? In the OFSTED inspection, one parent commented that 'This is an excellent school; there is a real sense of community.' We would be delighted to take you on a tour of our amazing school and hopefully you will see for yourself exactly why our SATs results are higher than national expectations.

Congratulations once again must go to our pupils and staff for working hard in 2019 - 2020 to achieve results which would have continued Northern's celebratory achievements of achieving levels above those achieved nationally and very often locally. Unfortunately due to coronavirus we did not have the opportunity to prove this through national tests.These results follow on from our excellent results which were well above national standards in 2018, 2017 and also the ones in 2016 which placed Northern in the top 1% of primary schools in England for attainment in writing and mathematics. Read the letter from Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP congratulating the school in 2016 on our achievement which you will find on the What Visitors Say tab.
Thank you for your positive comments and support.
