At Byker Primary School we have high expectations of all children. We endeavour to create an atmosphere where every child can work to the best of their ability, and we strive to ensure that children with special educational needs are able to fulfil their true potential.
As parents, we are aware that you know your children best and therefore we encourage a close working partnership so that you and your children have a happy and productive journey throughout their time in our school.
