Ofsted Report 2018

Dear Parents / Carers,

I am delighted to share with you all our Ofsted report.  We are one of the few primary schools in Newcastle that have received a ‘Good’ grade overall  with ‘Good’ grades in all areas of school life and leadership. Our very special children, parents, carers and staff team deserve this recognition as we have, in the words of the inspector, worked hard together to make a “happy and successful school”.

We are unique in that we have children coming from countries all around the world to work, play and learn together and together we make our school an exciting place to be in the centre of our amazing Benwell community.

The work of Mrs. O’Neill is rightly recognised in this report. She worked tirelessly to ensure that only the best was good enough for your children. We will continue to make sure that this remains the case always.

We are lucky to have a fabulous governing body who care as much about our school and your children as we do and to be part of the Laidlaw Schools Trust with its dedicated support team. Together we will make sure that our children receive the very best start in life and are ready to move onto the next stage of learning. I look forward to meeting you all and hearing your views as I will continually try to improve the education we provide for your children. Together we will continue to make this a truly amazing school.


L. Macaulay,

Acting Head of School.
