Inspired by Reggio Emilia and Danish pre‐schools, this is a school like no other. We have a special personalised approach, building learning environments that are meaningful to every child, because we know that children learn best when they are engaged in their learning.

At West Newcastle Academy, our vision is that all children will achieve their full potential, with holistic support, whilst they enjoy, own and drive their learning, gaining self‐respect, self‐esteem and self‐belief. Our classroom extends to rich, exciting environments within the forest, the beach, the city and the community as a whole.

This handbook will provide you with information about our Reception class, the Early Years curriculum, ways you can help prepare your child for school and other details about school life.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to West Newcastle Academy.
