At Byker Primary School we have high expectations of children. We endeavour to create an atmosphere where children can work to the best of their ability. We encourage parents to become involved in the education of their children as you are every bit as important as we are. We hope you and your children will spend many happy and productive years with us.

As well as encouraging our children to reach their full potential academically we want them to develop a sense of independence, initiative, confidence and self-worth. We feel it is important to learn outside the classroom as well as in and so educational visits, residential field study trips and after school clubs are also encouraged.

We look for the best in all our children. Raising self-esteem is of the utmost importance. Confident children achieve higher goals. This booklet aims to answer some of the questions you might need to ask but if there is still something unanswered don’t hesitate to contact us. There will always be someone to help you.
