Personal Development

Byker Primary is committed to serving its community.  It recognises the multicultural, multi faith and ever-changing nature of the United Kingdom.  It also understands the vital role it has in ensuring that groups or individuals within the school are not subjected to intimidation or radicalisation by those wishing to unduly, or illegally, influence them. Our curriculum extends beyond the academic with the aim of supporting pupils to develop in many diverse aspects of life.

It follows equal opportunities' guidance which guarantees that there will be no discrimination against any individual or group, regardless of faith, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, political or financial status, or similar. Byker Primary is dedicated to preparing students for their adult life beyond the formal examined curriculum and ensuring that it promotes and reinforces British values to all its students.

The school uses strategies within the National curriculum and beyond to secure such outcomes for students.   We strive endlessly to ensure that its students leave with the strongest foundation of values upon which to build a successful life and a successful contribution to our society.

Byker provides opportunities to develop children’s social, moral and cultural development. The curriculum and our wider work supports our pupils to be confident, resilient and independent and develops strength of character.

We use a range of approaches to achieve this aim:

  • British Values
  • Rights Respecting
  • School Values
  • Equality Act
  • SMSC
  • Safeguarding Curriculum
  • PSHE/RSE Curriculum
  • Enrichment (11 before 11)
  • Trips, Visitors and Workshops
  • Focus Learning Days
  • Pupil Panels
