West Jesmond is a truly unique school with a long history of successfully providing the highest quality education in Jesmond since 1901. In that time there have been many changes to education and indeed our wonderful school building but throughout the past 111 years we have always prided ourselves in making our children feel special and nurtured their talents in all areas of the curriculum.
I look forward to hearing your views through future consultation events of how we can continually try to improve the education we provide for your children. Please do contact the school office if you would like an appointment to see me at any time and I will endeavour to see you as soon as possible.
I am passionate that we create a truly outstanding school built on secure foundations of excellent teaching, a daring, memorable, creative curriculum and consistently high academic attainment and progress for all learners.
It is my vision that the children of West Jesmond leave us in Year 6 as happy, successful, articulate, aspirational and empathetic young people, eager for the next stage of learning in their lives and respectful towards the exciting differences of cultures in modern British society.
It is also crucial that in our school we foster a whole family atmosphere where children feel confident to express their individuality, their talents and know that success in any aspect of their lives will be rewarded and celebrated. We currently have children from 27 countries around the world and have children fluent in up to 21 languages – something very few primary schools can boast about. This adds to our unique nature where children work, play and learn together harmoniously.
Together we will make West Jesmond Primary an exciting place for your children in which to learn, grow and flourish in the centre of our vibrant Jesmond community and also as a beacon of excellence across our great city.
School Streets trials have been taking place in Newcastle this week and this morning we joined pupils at Lemington Riverside Primary School to hear what they thought about their rather different journey to school. Find out more here 👉 https://t.co/OWZ5VVzcb7 https://t.co/gXEAhb5vFt
635 days since our last competitive fixture, our squad won against East Northumberland tonight. There was some outstanding football on display and they did their schools proud. We’ve definitely missed those nights under the lights ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️ https://t.co/VzOfCQ9pca
Thank you West Jesmond children for your effort and enthusiasm this half term! We hope you have a lovely week of autumn sunshine, conkers and leaf jumping! 🍁 🍂 🌰
Say cheese! Just a reminder the school photographer is in school tomorrow for individual pupil photos.
Year 4 have been learning about the key role allotments played during World War 1. On our school allotment, helped by our great volunteer team, we have harvested some of the produce and worked together to prepare and cook nutritious meals!
Primary Science Capital
We're joined now by some of our participating teachers, sharing experiences of applying the #PrimaryScienceCapital approach in their classrooms.
Great day with School Direct trainees from @West_Jes_School looking at all things Science.
We did it! 20 miles from the Stadium of Light to St James’ Park. It was great to meet more staff, pupils and parents collecting for Rocco. https://t.co/uWzp25KDtQ
Still smiling at South Shields! Just over 9 miles done! Plenty collected on the way. https://t.co/uWzp25KDtQ
