Thank you to everyone who gave donations to Children In Need on Friday 18th November .  We raised £ 205.71


Shotley Primary is a school with a number of strengths and plenty of potential. It is a caring school, with a committed staff, and a place where children are at the heart of all we do.


 My priority is to ensure that the changes we make in this new chapter of the school’s history as part of ASSET Education are supported by the whole school community, so that together we can continue to develop Shotley Primary to be the best it can be. 


This website aims to give you sense of school life, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.


Visits to the school from prospective parents are warmly welcomed; please phone the school office to make an appointment, and we will be delighted to show you around. If you have any questions please do not hesitate in getting in touch and we will do our best to help you. Your thoughts and views on how we can all work together in a meaningful way are always welcome.

Looking forward to working with you.

Richard Dedicoat, Headteacher



Environmental Area Management Morning

Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers who gave 3 hours of their Saturday morning to remove a vast mass of reed mace from the pond - a couple of hours of heavy work - and to prune trees and clear brush and leaves from the surrounding area. Improved light can now penetrate the wildflower area and new wildflower seeds were sown, and bulbs were also planted . Now the area is ready to regenerate in the spring.
