About Ayresome Primary School

 Ayresome Primary School is a very large 2-11 primary school situated in the Gresham Ward of Middlesbrough and serves an area of significant social and economic deprivation.  The school was formed from the amalgamation of Ayresome Infants and Ayresome Juniors in 2002. The school has approximately 700 pupils on roll and has high mobility. The school employs a large team of around 90 dedicated and committed staff. 

As a school, Ayresome Primary school is on an exciting journey with developments to ensure that the school makes rapid progress in moving from a school which requires improvement, to a good school, thus ensuring that all children achieve the very best that they can.  This role presents a great opportunity to become an integral part of a team who have the drive and ambition to work alongside experienced colleagues to establish excellent standards in teaching and learning through teaching an ambitious curriculum, thus resulting in higher levels of achievement for all. 

 There are a number of different languages spoken by pupils with a significant number of children new to England and of Eastern European Roma origin.  This different cultural mix within school adds to the vibrancy and family ethos to ensure that everyone within the community is celebrated. 

The school promotes six key values of respect, trust, tolerance, ambition, determination and excellence. 

The school has recently undergone a substantial refurbishment programme, to ensure that the well maintained building continues to provide a welcoming learning space for the local community. 

The surrounding area is mostly terraced housing but a large park also borders the school. The school is blessed with two playgrounds, a purpose build MUGA with 4G surface and a developed garden area with a green space for all aspects of outdoor learning. The outside areas for the Early Years are established and continually being updated.
