Description of the school

Shiremoor Primary School is larger than average. It is set in an area of high social and economic deprivation. Most pupils are of White British heritage, with less than 5% from minority ethnic groups. A small number of pupils speak English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils eligible for free school meals is well above average, so too is the proportion of pupils who have learning difficulties and/or disabilities. The school regularly wins acclaim for its work. Some of the recent awards include: the Challenge Award for More Able Pupils, International School Award, Basic Skills Award, the Gold Artsmark and the Healthy Schools Award.
