Congratulations to all of our KS2 staff and pupils who are in: Chestnut, Sycamore, Ash and Beech classes. Everyone has worked incredibly hard to put the Lion King show together and the results were tremendous which was down to hard work, commitment and great team work. Many thanks to all of our parents, grandparents, governors and friends who came along to see the production and for all the praise bestowed upon us. It is certainly going to be difficult to follow this show next year.
Well done to FONs who have made over £800 profit for the school at this year’s Summer Fayre. It was lovely to see so many parents, governors and friends supporting the school and as you can see from the photos below everyone had a brilliant time. It was a tremendous effort by everyone involved but a very big thank you must particularly go to the Chairs of FONS, Julia Hocking and Karen Lyons. Without their hard work and commitment the Fayre would definitely not have run this year. From the proceeds, the school is now looking forward to purchasing a good quality sound system for the hall. This will be used on a daily basis, benefitting all of our children across the school.
If you would like any more information about any aspect of Newtown Primary, or would like to arrange a visit, please feel free to contact us.
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.
We will invite anyone interested in becoming a governor to send us a pen portrait with their skills and experience. The following groups of people might be interested:
Governors develop their skills by attending training, learning from experienced governors and attending meetings. You can read about being a governor on the school website. If you are new to being a governor, we recommend you start with The Beginner’s Guide to being a Governor.
If you are interested in being a governor, do talk to one of the governors or get in touch with Jenny Lloyd, Chair of Governors (JennyMLloyd@gmail.com).
