Description of the school

Lingey House is a larger-than-average-sized primary school serving an area of mixed housing towards the eastern edge of Gateshead local authority. Over a quarter of the pupils are eligible for free school meals, which is above the national average. There are more boys on the school roll than average. Very few pupils are from minority ethnic communities or have English as a second language. The proportion of pupils who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities is much higher than the national average while the proportion of those with a statement of special educational need is below. Early Years Foundation Stage provision comprises one full-time and one part-time Nursery class, a Reception class and a mixed Reception/Year 1 class. The school holds a number of nationally recognised national awards including: Artsmark Gold, National Healthy School Award, Activemark, International Award, Quality Mark for Basic Skills and recently the Eco Schools Award. A private breakfast and after-school club is based on the school site. It is subject to a different inspection and a separate report is available on the Ofsted website.
