Welcome

Welcome to Brighton Avenue Primary School, Gateshead.

 

Welcome to Brighton Avenue Primary School.

 

As you browse through our website, I 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.

 

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 and agree our school is a great school to come to. (Pupil Questionnaire 2019)

 

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.   Our curriculum, based on a balance of skills and knowledge, is built around half termly educational visits and visitors into school in a creative, stimulating and rich environment.  Our highly skilled staff 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 2019)

 

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 encourage and promote a ‘can do’ culture.

 

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 us if you require any additional information or have any queries.

 

Below are some of the comments we received from our Parents’ Questionnaire 2019.

 

“Staff are very friendly and want the very best for the children.” Mr C

 

“It’s always good to know the school is so supportive and it makes me feel as a parent very comfortable to know I can always talk to somebody (who will be interested).” Mrs B

 

“The school is well led and organised with excellent staff, who are all warm, friendly and approachable.  As a parent we are made to feel involved at every step and my child absolutely loves coming to school every day.” Mrs T

 

I absolutely love being the Headteacher of our school. Our children are utterly amazing and I feel privileged and honoured every day to be leading such a fantastic school.

 

Best wishes,

 

Mrs Joanne Allan

Headteacher
