Hello and welcome to West Rainton Primary School.
Our school is a fun and happy place to work, play, learn and grow. We care for each other like a big extended family, and we are proud of what our school represents and every individual within it.
We will work hard to help your child achieve high standards of work and behaviour as a valued member of our happy school community.
Our school is situated in the former mining village of West Rainton on the outskirts of Durham. It opened in 1927 and has been serving the community of West Rainton and Leamside ever since. We pride ourselves on being a happy and welcoming school community where lifelong learning is fostered through creativity and enjoyment.
Children of all ages have full access to a rich, inclusive and broad curriculum that allows everyone to shine, and ensures the children leave us with a strong sense of self-awareness, a pride in who they are and a motivation to contribute positively to 21st century life.
If you would like to know more about our fantastic school, or would really enjoy a look around, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
