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 believe in safe happy children"

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"




















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:

  • Parents / carers
  • Grandparents of children in the school
  • People who live or work in the Newtown area
  • People currently serving as governors

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).
