Why Choose Us?


Personalised Attention

With smaller class sizes, our dedicated teachers can provide personalised attention to each student, ensuring that no one gets left behind. Your child will receive the individualised support they need to thrive academically and socially.

Strong Sense of Community

In our close knit school community, every child is valued, and every family is welcomed with open arms. From our work with local groups to community events, you'll feel a strong sense of belonging from day one. Together we can create a supportive environment where every child can succeed.

Outside Learning

Our rural location offers endless opportunities for hands-on, experiential learning. Whether its exploring nature trails or participating in community events, your child will have the chance to learn outside the classroom and develop a deep appreciation for the world around them. 

Strong Academic Foundation

Despite our small size, our school delivers big results. Our dedicated teachers use innovative teaching methods and rigourous curriculum to ensure that every student reaches their full potential. From reading and Maths to Science and Art, we provide a well-rounded education that prepares students for success in the future.

Emphasis on Values and Character

At Castleside Primary School, we don't just focus on academics - we also prioritise the development of strong character values and character traits. 

We take time to reflect on behaviour and encourage our pupils to be thoughtful, respectful, creative, open-minded members of our school community, the local community and the wider world. We promote democracy and resilience and give our children the opportunity to have their voices heard.

Rights Respecting School

Our 'Rights Respecting' status is a reflection of the importance we place upon celebrating the child as an individual in our society and developing them as responsible and empathetic citizens. 

Join us as Castleside Primary School and experience the difference of a small primary school education. Together we will nurture your child's potential and inspire a life-long love of learning.

New College Durham Academies Trust

The focus on Excellence underpins all that we do whether in learning areas, working within the communities we serve or governing and leading our Academies.
