Jarrow Cross Church of England Primary School provides a caring, Christian environment where EVERYONE is welcome and given the opportunity to develop their full potential.
Jarrow Cross is a Voluntary Controlled Church of England Primary School. We have close links with our local clergy who regularly lead a daily worship in school and also special calendar events. Children are regular visitors to our local churches and take part in both acts of worship and educational visits. On entering Jarrow Cross all children are placed in Houses named after The four Evangelists Matthew, Mark, Luke and John and House Assemblies are used to foster a spirit of community and belonging. Classrooms have a small prayer space which children can use throughout the day and our Reflection Garden is regularly used by small groups of children.

We firmly believe in our motto of “Value in Everyone “and endeavour to bring the strong Christian ethos of our school to life by:
