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.

In the last week of term we visited St Cuthbert's Church in Blaydon for the Christmas Experience where we visited little set up role play areas to help us to understand the Christmas Story in more detail. We were surprised to learn that there is no mention of a...
Have you ever tried converting mixed numbers into improper fractions or vice versa? Well we did and it was hard! On day 1 we all found it really hard to understand the idea and couldn't really convert the fractions. So Mrs Oram went home that night and had a rethink...
We spent an exciting day working with the 'Show Racism the Red Card' team. There was a training leader and John Anderson who is a famous footballer who played for Newcastle United when Mrs Oram was little - so that was obviously a long time ago! Don't judge a book by...
