Slaley First School

Situated in the centre of Slaley, the First School serves the areas of Slaley, Blanchland and Minsteracres, taking children from 3 to 9 years. The Headteacher is Debbie Brett, and the Chair of Governors is Mrs Marge Rastall.

Following its last inspection by Ofsted in March 2015, the report stated that:

" Strong teamwork and effective leadership ensure that children thrive and achieve well."

" Throughout their time in school, pupils become confident young citizens, well prepared for life in the world in which they live."
The school has its own website, where you will find much more information:

The Friends of Slaley School (FOSS) is the name of Slaley First School's Parent Teacher Association. We have an open membership which means that as a parent/guardian/teacher of a child at the school you automatically become a member of Friends of Slaley School and are welcome to attend meetings (again, more details can be found on the school's website).

In a recent questionnaire (July 2016) one parent said:

"A fabulous school that would benefit any pupil!"
