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.
