School Performance

We are extremely  proud of the progress our children make not just at the end of each Key Stage but across our school as a whole.

The children’s learning journey means that the vast majority of children make super progress in Reading, Writing and Maths and the 2016 SATS showed that the majority  of children made more than expected progress in the three core subjects compared to other schools in Gateshead, and other schools Nationally.

This is a fantastic result for everyone at Blaydon West Primary School.
