Head Teacher's Message

Visions and Values

Our visions and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


‘Argue for your limitations and sure enough they’re yours.’

As the Head Teacher of Shotton Primary School, I am proud and delighted to warmly welcome you to our developing website. I am privileged to be Head of a creative, vibrant school, where we want challenge, enjoyment, thinking and excitement to be at the heart of learning. With extremely committed, hardworking and dedicated staff and governors, our educational aim is simple- by working together we can achieve more.


We strive to give everyone in our school a love of learning and the life-long skills to empower them to choose the life they want. We are committed to the highest possible standards of teaching and learning, so that we are able to provide the best possible outcomes and opportunities for all of our pupils.


At Shotton Primary we believe children should be proud of their achievements, successes and individuality. We endeavour to create a stimulating and exciting learning environment, where success is celebrated and mistakes are to be acknowledged as a positive part of the learning process.


The contribution of parents/carers and the wider community to our children’s education and progress is vital and we are actively seeking to strengthen our partnership.


We are a large school, with a strong and proud heritage, successfully providing a high quality education to the children and families of Shotton Colliery and Haswell. Whether you are a prospective or existing parent and you require any further information or clarification, please do not hesitate to contact our school.  


Yours sincerely,


Mrs H Shaw

Head Teacher
