Welcome to Newtown Primary School Website

and thank you for showing an interest in our school. We are proud of Newtown, which is a family-friendly community and maintains the feel of a village school, even though it is in the heart of the city. We are situated a short walk from the Cathedral, theatres, museum and library of Exeter city.

Other local amenities include Belmont Park, St Matthew’s church, shops, sports centre, swimming pool, hospital and police station, all of which provide opportunities for supporting the school curriculum.

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

Newtown Primary is a GOOD school – Ofsted 2014

Our latest Ofsted report reflects a huge amount of  hard work, commitment and clarity of purpose from our head teacher, our teaching and non-teaching staff, our parents and carers, our governors and all our children.

The governors would like to congratulate everyone for achieving a good judgement; it was an extremely rigorous and challenging inspection.

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 where you log on to give your views. There is also a direct link from our Ofsted report.
