Pedagogical staff at Kocho Chestemenski school, realizing the challenges of the 21st century for equal education of our students to that of European students and together with Green Lane CE Primary School decided to work out that project for good practices exchange.

 Green Lane  CE Primary School is situated in the south west Durham market town of Barnard Castle at the top of Green Lane, just off Victoria Road. It is surrounded by extensive playing fields and gardens with panoramic views of Teesdale.

The school premises were built in 1956 as a secondary school. In 1977 secondary provision in Barnard Castle was amalgamated and relocated to its current site at Teesdale Comprehensive School. Burnard Castle Junior and Infant Schools then moved into the vacant Green Lane building. In 1980 the two schools were combined to form Barnard Castle C.E. Primary School ,now known as Green Lane Primary School. A full refurbishment was recently completed and full disabled access is now possible. The school caters for 4-11 year olds with 185 children currently on roll.

As well as the primary school the site at Green Lane also now houses Green Lane Nursery and Childcare Center and High Force SCITT /School Center Initial Teacher Training Center/. The school is very proud of its close links with the Nursery and High Force and takes an active role in supporting local teacher training.
