Newcastle East mixed multi Academy Trust (NEAT)
We are delighted to inform you that Benfield School, along with Central Walker C of E Primary, Tyneview Primary, Walkergate Community School and West Walker Primary School received the news in September 2016 that their Academy applications have been approved by the Department for Education.
These schools will formally come together under the new NEAT Trust during 2017.
We are so pleased with this news as this will enable us to continue to work successfully together, improving the outcomes for all of our children in the East End. You will also begin to see an even greater partnership as we build on best practice together.
Fantastic Academic Results
In summer 2016, the data shows our schools all achieved great results with the combined outcomes being above both Newcastle and the national average.
Benfield achieved a combined score of 58% for pupils achieving 5 A*- C grades including English and Maths.
The combined average for all four primaries in terms of attainment and progress is, at every stage of primary education, above national. We are delighted with these outcomes!
