Primary Team

The Primary Team has strategic knowledge of North Tyneside schools and our partners beyond the Local Authority (LA). This enables us to share best practice and ensure that our schools benefit from a wider view. We all have links with and collaborate with local LAs, the wider region and nationally. We have links to universities regionally and nationally, through intervention training from the Every Child Counts (ECC) or through sharing expertise.

 

We offer a maths and literacy health check to support schools with development of this crucial phase.
