Our school is an old-established Primary School with a reputation of high standards in academic work, the arts and in sports.  We are proud of what we do, and our results are generally above national norms. Our children go on to do very well in life, and some even return to work in our school. 

Our special aim is that every child in Collingwood Primary School finds and fosters at least one skill or attribute of which they can be proud.

About Our School
The older part of the building was opened in 1929 and in 1951 the newer part was added. The school mainly serves the area between Wallsend Road and the Coast Road and is named after Admiral Lord Collingwood whose picture hangs in the entrance hall. There are 3 halls, 17 classrooms, a Nursery Unit and a Kitchen. There are 3 playgrounds and a playing field. The school caters for children from Nursery school age to 11.

We have excellent teachers and support staff who are committed to helping our children be happy, learn well, and acquire a special skill which will stay with them throughout life. Our school is well known for its enrichment programme. We provide a wide range of clubs in sport, arts, crafts, music and homework, and our school curriculum uses skilled specialists for music, PE and French.

We have achieved national awards in many areas of school life, for example Arts Mark Gold, the Healthy Schools Award, Basic Skills Award, Investors in People and a Silver Languages Award. 
A Message from the Headteacher
Welcome to Collingwood Primary School.
took over the role of headteacher here in January 2018 and have found it to be a very friendly, caring and hard-working community. The governors, parents, children and staff have made me feel so welcome and there is always a positive, happy atmosphere around school. 
Previously, I was the headteacher of a school in South Tyneside and so far it is clear to me that we provide an excellent education for all children at Collingwood - from Nursery right up to Year 6. I feel both privileged and proud to work here.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like any information about our school or if you already have a child here and would like to offer me any ideas or suggestions. 
Thank you 
Mrs H Bland
