Welcome to Brighton Avenue Primary School, Gateshead.
Welcome to our school website. As you browse through our website, we hope you will find all the information you require about our school and begin to understand the experiences and education that we can offer your child here at Brighton Avenue Primary School.
Brighton Avenue Primary School is a very happy inclusive school and we are always commended on the very warm, calm and purposeful ethos ‘ALL’ visitors experience as soon as they walk through our doors.
Our number one priority in school is to provide your child with a happy and safe environment as we strongly believe this provides the essential foundations on which to build learning. 100% of our children tell us they feel happy and safe at school (March 2018 questionnaire) and as a team of staff, parents and children, we work really hard to provide your child with a stimulating and structured curriculum in which they can grow and develop the skills they need to be successful in their lives.
Our curriculum is built around half termly educational visits and visitors into school. Children are educated in a creative, stimulating and rich environment and our caring and nurturing staff have high expectations of all pupils academically, socially and personally to ensure good progress in all areas.
We have very high expectations of our children and encourage a can do culture. We are a high achieving school and for the last five years, we have received a yearly letter from The Minister of State, congratulating us on being one of the top performing schools nationally. This year, we received a letter informing us that our school was in the top 2% of performing schools nationally.
We view all of our parents as partners in the educational process and appreciate your support in all aspects of school life. The school has an open door policy for new and existing parents, so please do not hesitate to contact the school if you require any additional information or have any queries.
Mrs Joanne Allan
