Newtown Primary School is committed to offering inclusive education.  We are, therefore, very proud to be one of two schools commissioned by Devon County Council to offer enhanced provision for pupils with speech and language difficulties.  A specialist 8 place resource base for pupils from Reception to Year 3 who have a specific, significant speech and/or language disorder is an intrinsic part of Newtown Primary School.

Parent View is an online questionnaire from Ofsted so that parents and carers can give their views about their school at any time of the year. It provides other parents with information about the school.

It also gives Ofsted information to help them identify priorities for inspection.The questionnaire covers a range of topics allowing you to give a view about Newtown on each issue. There is also a question about whether or not you would recommend Newtown to other parents.

Go to parentview.ofsted.gov.uk where you log on to give your views. There is also a direct link from our Ofsted report.

"Making the right choices for you"




















The governing body focuses its time and energy on school improvement.  Governors work collectively to support and strengthen the leadership of the headteacher. Governors play a strategic role; the head teacher is responsible for the routine running of the school.

The governing body is responsible for:

  • Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction
  • Holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils and the performance management of staff
  • Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.
