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.
Mrs Kathryn Herron
**Message for Parents (23/11/20)**
For those of you with children in Reception: As you will know, only Reception Red will be returning to school this morning. This is to allow us to operate safely given the number of staff we currently have. We will have more information for parents towards the end of the week.
We are looking forward to another hard-working week in school. Teachers have been busy over the last week or so, telephoning you all to inform you of your children's progress. This is because we cannot hold Parents' Evening as we usually would. If you have any further concerns or queries about your child's progress, please feel free to call the main office and we will help you as soon as possible.
Wish best wishes for a happy and peaceful week.
