Welcome!

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of Lemington Riverside Primary School!
 
I have been Head Teacher here at Lemington Riverside since January 2019 - I am extremely proud of our children, my staff team and our community here in Lemington.

Lemington is a suburb of the city of Newcastle Upon Tyne. We are a community with a proud industrial heritage, but we are far more than that - we are a school and community passionate about providing the very best start in life to our children and equipping them to be outstanding citizens. 
 
We are working to develop an awe-inspiring curriculum at Lemington Riverside, where we celebrate and develop all of our children's talents whether that be academic, sporting, artistic or musical.
 
We strongly believe that every child at Lemington Riverside should experience the full cultural offer of the magnificent North East region in which we live. If your child is with us from Nursery to Year 6 they will experience every cultural venue in our city, visit every museum and gallery and explore our brilliant cities, our wild Northumberland countryside and our dramatic north-eastern coast! 
 
Our slogan is #WeAreLemington - we are a small, friendly primary school at the heart of a big Geordie community.
 
'We Are Lemington' and we would love you to join us on our journey!
 
Craig Heeley (Head Teacher)
