A Melrose Learning Trust School

Welcome to Prior’s Mill CE Primary School. It is both a pleasure and a privilege to be Headteacher, serve the local community and represent the amazing children and families that contribute to our school. On behalf of myself, staff and governors I hope you enjoy the opportunity to find out more about Prior’s Mill and the range of opportunities we can provide for your child to fulfil their potential.

We are a large mainstream Church of England school based in Billingham, Stockton-on-Tees. Our Christian foundation is at the core of who we are and we seek to live out our Christian faith and values in all we do. The Prior’s Promise provides a distinct set of Christian values through which pupils and staff endeavour to live by both in and out of school, it is entwined within our curriculum and provides opportunity for academic, personal and spiritual growth.

Our school provides a safe, positive and encouraging environment where children feel listened to, valued and cared for. Our dedicated and enthusiastic staff team strive to provide the best possible education, outcomes and experiences for our children. We have strong partnerships with parents and carers, who we believe are vital to the education of their children, and we look forward to seeing you on many occasions to celebrate successes, discuss progress and share how you can become involved in your child’s learning journey.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find any information you are looking for. Should you wish for more detail, or would like paper copies of any information, please do not hesitate to contact us we will be happy to help. If you are a prospective parent or carer, please get in touch to arrange a visit and myself or a member of the Leadership Team would be more than happy to show you around and answer any questions.

Thank you for visiting our site!

The smallest of all seeds becomes the biggest of the garden plants.

Today was the first of many celebrations to mark the end of our Y6’s journey at Prior’s Mill.
The children had a great time participating in prayer spaces and a service of reflection about their primary years 🥰

Believe it or not, we are fast approaching the end of another academic year and preparing to say goodbye to our current Y6 children!
It this time of year that we start to look back at all their memories throughout their time at Prior’s Mill.
With this in mind, we would love to see the ...special memories that you have captured 📷 over the years of our y6 children that can be shared during our leavers celebrations.
Please send any memories through messenger on this page! We are sure you have loads!

Some of our Year 5 and 6 children are having a great time at the athletics event in Middlesbrough despite the rainy morning. There’s been lots of competitive events already and the children have been great!

Good Evening,

Apologies but the program we use for our newsletter has auto-corrected the dates to May. The correct dates are:

National Sports Week is 17th - 21st June

Nursery Sports Day Tuesday 18th June 10am

Morning Nursery 1:45pm / Afternoon Nursery
...Reception Sports Day Wednesday 19th June (afternoon - 2pm)

Apologies for any confusion - thanks to the parents who have let us know.

This week, our Y6s have shown us just what super stars they are. Every single day, they showed up with smiles on their faces ready to approach each SATs paper with a sense of determination and a positive attitude. We are so excited to see the results in a few months time but equally we are also ...filled with pride now in the knowledge they tried their best: it’s all we can ask!

Enjoy a well deserved break this weekend kids. You truly deserve it!

Miss Kemp, Mrs McHale, Mrs Williams, Miss Jobling, Mrs Wild and Mrs Whittaker 💕

Today marks the start of Sats week for our Year 6 children.

All we can ask is that you try your best. You’ve got this. 💪🏼

Remember we are so proud of everything you have achieved this year 💕

This week, class 7 went to a Quad kids event to work on their athletics skills. They had lots of fun and worked hard in the sun.
