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.
We wish all of our West Jesmond Family a lovely summer☀️ Thank you all for your incredible support this year. A special thank you to our Year 6 Leavers for filling our school with your boundless creativity, enthusiasm, energy and fun! We will miss you! ✨ ✨

Year 4 had been learning about haiku poems last week so they used poetry to tell you all about the history of the Olympic Games!
Year 6 had lots of fun in sun for their Adventure Day at Newburn Activity Centre. It was wonderful to see the children challenging themselves, working together and looking so happy. ☀️ 😊 🧗 🧭 🔥 🏹 🏐 🤸♂️ 😊 ☀️

Newcastle schools will keep current systems, like bubbles and staggered start and finish times, in place for the last week of term (July 19 – 23). This is to keep everyone safe and reduce the risk of illness, isolation and disruption during the holidays. https://t.co/l8qkMqZBS8 https://t.co/Unk46DVNLF
We are really proud of Harry in Y1 for his thoughtfulness.

Year 4 had an amazing afternoon taking part in Olympic Sports Day. They particularly enjoyed their first time throwing the discus after learning about its Ancient Greek origins this week.
