A very warm welcome to our school website. We hope you are able to get a sense of what West Pelton Primary School is like through it.
We are a very small primary school and this is something that makes us unique. We always have the very best interests of all our children at the heart of everything we do so, together, we can keep them safe, happy and help them to achieve their full potential.
We believe it is our responsibility to provide a broad and balanced curriculum that nurtures and challenges our children to develop a sound set of moral values (honesty, integrity and good judgement), a good set of social skills – (helpfulness, thoughtfulness and cooperation), robust basic skills, strong self-esteem, a growing confidence in their own abilities and a respectful attitude towards others.
If you are considering sending your child to our school then please take the time to read ‘Our Vision’ in the Parents Section of our website and make an appointment to come along and meet us so you can see our school and get a real sense of what we are about so that you can make the best decision for your child.
I am, as always, immensely proud of what we have all achieved so far and feel very privileged to work alongside so many great children, their families and a hard working, dedicated staff and governing body.

Chester-le-Street Learning Alliance
Through our private nursery we are a founder member of the Chester-le-Street Learning Alliance. This is a school company formed by a number of other educational providers in the Chester-le-Street area.
We have worked informally together for a number of years and the Chester-le-Street Learning Alliance was a natural development to these well-established, supportive relationships.
Our company has four main aims:
- To deliver enrichment activities tailored to our collective need,
- To share good professional practice within the group,
- To maximise resources by collectively bidding for grants, equipment and services and
- To finance joint projects.
