In this section of our website we would like to share our images of events and visits with you. We have also added information about our close links with our local community, some visit our school on a regular basis and work closely with us to help make changes.
A Good Start to the Day, a Good Start in Life
The Greggs Breakfast Club Programme was established in 1999 to help primary school children get a nutritious start to their school day. Every school is provided with fresh bread from their nearest Greggs shop.
We are extremely thankful to both Greggs and Believe Housing for providing our school with bread and funds for our breakfast club. This allows the children of our school to attend a breakfast and start their day with a full tummy.

Swim Quest have been running lessons since April 2013. They are a local family business. They currently run in a number of pools in County Durham, Brandon Primary School being one of them. They deliver high quality swimming lessons and coaching. They teach lessons from 4 years and above, from complete beginners up to competition level and have a dedicated team of teachers.
For more information, find them on their Facebook page below.
Local Nursing and Care homes
At Brandon Primary School, we believe that our children play an important role in our local community. We have made visits to the local nursing and carehomes to provide entertainment and fun for the elderly in their care. Our Early Years have visited to play games with the residents as well as share arts and crafts.
We are continuing to build relationships and recently invited the residents to travel to our school and watch the Early Years Nativity.
Helping Local Residents
For Harvest, Early Years made Harvest bags of food and left them on elderly resident’s door steps. These were greatly appreciated and made everyone smile.
Area Action Partnership (APP)
AAPs are partnerships that consist of members of the public, representatives for Durham County Council, town and parish councils, police, fire, health, housing, business, university and voluntary organisations. Together they:
- work with communities and organisations to meet the needs of the community, through identifying local priorities and actions required to tackle them
- allocate funding to local organisations and support their development
- monitor the difference that funding and support is making to communities
- ensure that you can get involved with consultation activities, and are aware of what’s going on in your community
They have used our school to hold meetings and discuss these important subjects.
