Who's Who

The Headteacher is Mrs Lynda Cavanagh.

"I joined Messingham Primary School as Head Teacher in September 2008. There have been lots of changes since then, the biggest of which was the building of a new Key Stage 2 block on the same site as Key Stage 1 pupils on Briggate Drive. Key Stage 2 moved to this site in September 2011.

The staff are fully committed to working with you to ensure that your child has a happy and successful time at our school."
