I am delighted to welcome you to our website, which will provide you with the latest news from Eslington Primary School. You will also find essential information about our school here, and through the site, we hope that you will begin to understand the experiences and education that we can offer your child. In September 2015, we opened the refurbished building that is now Eslington Primary School Rose Street. This has enabled us to give an education for more of the children in Gateshead who need our specialist provision.
Eslington is a very safe, supportive and exciting place to be. We provide an environment that is stimulating and nurturing, balanced with structure and boundaries. This is to ensure that your child can learn and develop academically, socially and emotionally. We encourage children to have a clear understanding of school expectations and to set their own personal targets and goals. We offer a caring atmosphere where all children are valued and encouraged to respect themselves and each other.
We always strive to provide the very best educational environment in which the children can all achieve and experience success. We are fortunate to have a very caring and committed staff, and children who are friendly and eager to learn.
In September 2015, we became part of a Soft Federation with Furrowfield School. Our vision for this Federation is to:
- Establish and embed a shared culture of high expectations within a nurturing environment. A culture that enables staff and children to feel valued, respected and that they are making a difference. A culture that supports the long term improvements for children emotionally, socially and academically.
- Increase the range of personal opportunities offered to all of our pupils as a result of the high levels of skilled and knowledgeable staff across both our primary and secondary SEMH schools.
- Improve learning outcomes for pupils by providing an educational provision that will meet pupil needs aged from 3 to 16, with shared practice and seamless transition between the Key Phases.
- To share practice and expertise within all key stage phases beyond our school community, to ensure better outcomes for all pupils within our Gateshead Schools’ Community.
We view parents as partners within both the educational process and our school community and appreciate your support in all aspects of school life. The school has an open door policy for new and existing parents, so please do not hesitate to contact our school if you require any additional information or have any queries.
Thank you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy our website.
