Background Information

Newcastle East mixed multi Academy Trust, known as NEAT, was formed in 2017.
We are a "mixed" MAT as we were established to include both non-religious and Church of England schools.
The first four schools to join in April 2017 were:
  • Central Walker Church of England Primary School
  • Tyneview Primary School
  • Walkergate Community School
  • West Walker Primary School
Benfield School joined NEAT in May 2017.
Collectively we have 2,275 pupils, a £13million budget and 350 employees.
All of our schools were judged 'Good' by Ofsted at their last inspection.
We also have a trading subsidiary company called NEAT Active Limited, which is wholly owned by the Trust but has its own Board of Directors.
