Welcome to Canning Street Primary School. We are a popular, diverse and inclusive school serving Benwell and the immediate surrounding area. We pride ourselves on being a happy, friendly and caring school. Visitors often comment on how respectful, kind and polite our children are. We promote kindness, tolerance and respect in everything that we do so that all of our children can play, learn and grow together in an inclusive and supportive way. We have a hard working and dedicated team who are committed to ensuring our children receive the best education. We believe confident reading and a wide vocabulary are essential life skills which open the door to all kinds of learning. Our curriculum, therefore, is built around a wide range of exciting, high quality novels which engage and excite the children. We ensure that lots of lively, hands on experiences are built in to deepen understanding and enjoyment.
We hope you find our website useful and informative and that it gives a glimpse of life here at Canning Street. If you would like to arrange a visit to get to know more about us, please ring school to arrange an appointment.

**UPDATED ADVICE for 5BLUE parents (24th October 2020)**
As you should be aware, we have had a positive adult Covid test in 5BLUE. We informed you this morning and told those who needed to isolate, to do so.
Unfortunately, a second adult is unwell in 5BLUE, therefore we have decided to class the whole class for two weeks. The whole class will return on Friday 6th November.
Those of you who were earlier told to isolate should still do so. Later today, more of you may receive a text instructing you to isolate.
Thank you for your ongoing support.
