The NSPCC are working with us this half term by running workshops for our Year 5/6 pupils and by leading parent and whole school assemblies. In return, the children have been asked to take part in ‘Buddy’s work out’ next week and to see if they can get friends and family to sponsor them. ‘Buddy’s work out’ is a 20 minute exercise session which is set to music and is a fun experience. We would really appreciate parents donating to this fantastic charity, who do some splendid work in helping vulnerable children across the country.

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.
