We have had our favourite local story teller, David Heathfield, back in school this week and he presented an assembly for the whole school, as well as running a staff meeting to follow. As always, he had the children and staff spell bound, with his inspirational story telling skills. When he quizzed the children about his Autumn term workshops which he ran last year they could all still clearly remember his wonderful stories.
Our house points system across the school has started extremely well with all of our pupils gaining lots of team points for a variety of reasons. Our first three days back Portland (blue team) were the winners and this week, being a full week, Clifton (red) team have been awarded the trophy. The team points were all very close with only six points between first and second places. We will keep you posted of any inter team competitions that will be running this term once they have been decided by the School Council.

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.
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.
