About Us

West Boldon Primary is situated in South Tyneside in the North East of England. The school was opened on 3rd October 1963. The school caters for boys and girls aged 4-11 years of age. At present there are approximately 288 children on roll. We have 13 classrooms plus rooms for use by outside agencies such as parents/grandparents and other visitors to the school. West Boldon Primary is set in pleasant grounds with a large field adjacent to the school. 

 Class teachers are responsible for the children’s welfare and delivery of the curriculum. Work is planned jointly, in Year Teams where applicable with close liaison, communication and support from our teaching assistant team. During planning, Year Teams share the preparation of work, drawing on different experiences, knowledge and expertise to ensure work is relevant and well matched to meet the needs of the children. In this way, we are able to utilise the strengths of a large staff team and enhance the quality of learning and teaching here at West Boldon.
