Welcome to Scremerston First School
Scremerston First School is a small First School located in a beautiful area of North Northumberland. We are a friendly, welcoming school with a capacity of 90 children aged 4 – 9 years (published admission number 18). Set within Scremerston, a small village situated close to the A1 and just south of the historic border town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, the school provides attractive and exciting school grounds for the children to explore and enjoy.
Our last Ofsted report (February 2011 , www.ofsted.gov.uk) was full of praise for our school.
Scremerston is a good school. It has several outstanding features. The school is highly successful in ensuring that pupils flourish in a cohesive school community and is rightly proud of the outstanding quality of its pastoral care. The school makes excellent use of its small size to promote a nurturing family atmosphere in which the adults know the pupils extremely well. As a result, pupils' sense of community, their knowledge of how to keep themselves safe and how to follow a healthy lifestyle are excellent.
To find out more about our school and our community please have a look around this website. If you have any questions or would like to visit the school please contact us and Julia Bradbury (School Secretary) or Helen Harrison (Head Teacher) will be in touch with you. We are always happy to welcome visitors to our school.
