Welcome from the Headteacher

Byker Primary School is a welcoming, friendly school set inside the Byker wall, in the East end of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Children from a range of different cultures and backgrounds are encouraged to do their best and aim high. The school strives to provide a varied and creative approach to learning, where children learn to express themselves and have fun!

Our dedicated team of staff share high expectations for our children to achieve to the best of their abilities, both within the classroom and beyond. We create a love of learning by challenging every child with an ambitious, broad and balanced curriculum brought to life by inspiring and innovative teaching and delivered with a passion for teaching and learning.  All learners are supported in their journey through school within a happy, stimulating and inclusive environment.

We pride ourselves on the caring ethos that is embedded within our school.

We showcase all of the extracurricular activities our pupils get up to inside and outside of school, in our monthly newsletters, blog site, and via our Twitter feed, you can find links to these on our homepage.  Our amazing school library is available online with a wide variety of resources including e-books for all ages to read at home.

As well as keeping our website up to date, we continue to ensure parents are informed of upcoming events and important information via parent mail.  If you are not already signed up to this, then please ask our school office staff to support you. 

Please have a look around our website, if you would like any further information, or would like to visit us as a prospective parent, please telephone on (0191) 265 6906.

Our school has made an application to become a School Of Sanctuary.  Please read more about what this means in the link provided.
