We wish a warm welcome to all our pupils, parents/carers, staff governors and interested visitors to our site.

Atkinson Road is a popular, thriving and vibrant school. We are situated in the heart of the west end of Newcastle and have been serving our community for over a century. During this time we have tasked ourselves in making our children feel happy, safe and secure whilst providing them with a wealth of experiences and opportunities to develop as well rounded, independent individuals. 

Our school motto is "Being the best I can rests with me. I treat others the way I would like to be treated."

Changes in 2018

As you are aware Atkinson Road Nursery School is becoming part of Atkinson Road Primary Academy, part of Laidlaw Schools Trust. We are looking forward to becoming a larger school family.

Mrs O'Neill, the head teacher of the primary school, has decided to take her retirement earlier than planned on 31st December 2017.

In view of Mrs O'Neill retiring, Mrs Macaulay (deputy head teacher) who knows the academy and community will lead the school  to ensure the successful  transition of the nursery into the school.

We would like to extend our deepest thanks to Mrs O'Neill for her outstanding leadership.
