Blaydon West Primary School was built in 1909 and is a listed building. It has places for up to 210 children from the age of 3–11. There is also a Nursery for children aged 3 to 4 years old, where places are allocated on a part time basis, enabling 26 children to receive Nursery education.

SEND Information Report
As part of the government’s reforms around special educational needs (SEN) and with the introduction of the new code of Practice in September 2014, local authorities are required to publish a local offer showing the support available to disabled children and young people and those with SEN and their families and carers.
Please download below the Gateshead local offer information pack for parents and carers of children aged 5-16
This booklet was produced jointly by Gateshead Council and the health service in partnership with parents and carers. It will help us to make sure that we are providing the sort of services that families have told us they need. It will be reviewed every 12 months so that it continues to reflect the views and needs of families living in Gateshead.
Please find below our report that outlines the support for SEN that you can expect from us at Blaydon West.
