Welcome to Brighton Avenue Primary School, Gateshead.
Welcome to Brighton Avenue Primary School.
As you browse through our website, we hope you find all the information you require about our school and begin to understand the outstanding experiences and education that we offer here.
Our school motto is, ‘Success for all ….Because every child is a star!’ We truly believe every child is a ‘unique’ star and therefore our job is to make our stars shine. Our whole school purpose is to ensure ‘every’ child is loved and valued, supported, challenged and encouraged to grow and develop into confident, well rounded young people. Our ultimate aim is that our children leave our school feeling proud, successful and ready to take the next big steps of their learning journeys.
Currently, we have 335 children on roll and we still continue to grow! Where possible, we have small classes, all staffed with full time teaching assistants, offering a high adult to child ratio.
We are a highly inclusive school. Therefore, we strategically plan our curriculum to ensure we embrace our unique diversity so that every child can grow, develop and achieve very well both socially and academically. take immense pride in the work that they do and are all absolutely committed to providing the highest level of care and support to our amazing children. What is even greater, is that our children recognise this! (Pupil Questionnaire November 2020)
Although we were judged to be outstanding in all areas in our last Ofsted inspection (October 2014), this does not mean we have become complacent. We constantly evaluate our provision to ensure our standards continue to rise for ‘ALL’ of our children.
We continue to have very high expectations of our school and each other and always

"The staff especially Head Teacher. The care that goes into the teaching and the school environment."

"The teachers are the real strength in the school, they care and they try their best to support the children."
"Excellent leadership from the Headteacher and her team. All staff are friendly and approachable. Welcoming and kind community feel."
"Everything the teachers are amazing and the Headteacher is outstanding. She knows every child by name and even the parents' names. She makes you welcome and you can tell she loves every child."
