Welcome to Whitfield.
We are a Church of England Primary School in a delightful rural setting.
On the 1st September 2017 we became the first school in Northumberland to join the The Good Shepherd Multi Academy Trust. We are excited to develop the learning at Whitfield with the support of our partner schools and the trust.
As a result of this change we will soon be located on a new website which will contain all of our up to date policies and information. We will let you know once our new website is up and running.
We are located in a village in the North Pennines - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We use nature to power our school and are completely carbon neutral with electricity provided by a wind turbine and solar panels. Even our water comes from a spring. We strive to make outdoor learning a key part of our curriculum and we are developing our outdoor space to make the most of the beautiful countryside all around us.During the summer we had a brand new echo extension that is insulated with sheep's wool and beautifully clad with wood. This has enable us to open our Early Years Unit, Little Lapwings, that provides a strong educational foundation for children from Nursery to Year One.
We are fortunate to be part of a strong community and are committed to serving it, and the surrounding area by providing the best possible education for our children in partnership with one another.
Our class sizes are small and the family ethos of our school is underpinned by our christian values of Creativity, Trust, Courage, Justice, Respect and Thankfulness
If you would like to visit us please do contact the school office to arrange a visit.
We look forward to welcoming you.
