Dear Parents and Carers,
The Staff and Governors are pleased to welcome you to Whalton C. of E. Aided Primary School, part of the Federation of Longhorsley and Whalton C of E Schools. If your child is joining us for the first time, we look forward to beginning a happy and successful relationship. If you already have or have had a child at Whalton School we are pleased to renew our partnership with you.
We want you to feel involved in the life of the School because it is through a secure partnership between staff and parents that children thrive and achieve their full potential. We work in close partnership with both the Pele Trust in Ponteland and The Three Rivers Trust in Morpeth to ensure the best journey for your children.
Prospective parents are welcome to visit us in order to enhance further any information you may seek about our school. Please make an appointment with Miss White in the office and do not hesitate to contact me with any concerns or queries.
Mrs Nichola Brannen
