Message from the Headteacher


Hello From the Headteacher,

Slaley First School is a lovely, caring and friendly school and I feel delighted and very privileged to be the Head teacher. 

We have a team of dedicated teachers, teaching assistants and support staff who know the school, its families and community very well. 

We aim to offer high quality teaching, learning and enriched opportunities. We want all of our children to be inspired to work hard, be curious about the world around them, ask questions, seek answers, solutions and have the ambition to succeed. We would like all of our children to meet their full potential academically and to have a genuine love of learning. 

Personally, I believe school should be an extension of the home, where every child should feel safe, secure and above all feel valued for being a special and unique individual. I am passionate about making a positive difference for every child.

Slaley First School School is part of a partnership to which children, you as parents, our Governors, staff and the local community also belong. We can all make a difference when working together and can ensure Slaley First School is an exciting, safe and successful place to grow, learn and flourish.

I hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities. The website will grow over time as we add more information, but can never replace the first-hand experience of coming to visit us - you are always welcome to arrange a visit and we would be delighted to show you what makes Slaley First School such an exceptional and rewarding place to learn.

Mrs Angela Hayward

Head Teacher
