Welcome to Gatehouse Primary School
We aim to provide an exciting and enjoyable environment in which every child can achieve their best. We are very proud of our school and hope this website will show you why.
This site includes lots of useful information for parents and will be kept up to date with news and announcements. It is also a place where the children learn. The class pages are made by the children and show their recent work.
We are always keen to hear from our community, so please use the contact form for any suggestions and comments.
John Riley (Head teacher)
We need your feedback about the plan for the new Nursery
Please look at the architects plan (click on the image above) and let us know what you think (by Friday of this week).
We are primarily concerned about the internal layout at this stage, the outdoor design is in an early stage of ideas and not really representative.
The main focus for comments should be on the internal layout.
The reason for the increased footprint of the area is to allow us to accommodate 2 year olds as part of the Early Learning and Childcare Legislation. We will as part of the build have new furniture and an internal layout of the playroom designed by Community Playthings once we are further down the road and the plans are set in motion.
We will have a purpose built nursery which can take 2, 3 and 4 year olds.
All ideas, comments and questions are welcome. Please get in touch with Mr Riley, Mrs Irving or the School Office by phone, email or in person.
