Welcome to Blaydon West
I am delighted to introduce to you our school website.
Blaydon West Primary School is a very friendly school where children are encouraged to become confident, caring and articulate to enable them to reach their full potential.
At Blaydon West Primary School we always put children first. This aim is at the heart of our vision. Every child is unique. Every child deserves the opportunity to be happy, feel valued and experience success.
We have recently introduced a creative curriculum which will prepare our pupils for life in the 21st Century.
This website provides information about our school, its aims, curriculum and activities. I hope it will give you a “feel” for the life and work of the school.
You are, of course, very welcome to look around the school yourself. Please contact Maureen Nacey on 4143286 if you would like to arrange a convenient time.
