We will be holding a non uniform day on Friday 9th October to support Hospiscare ‘Bring a £1 day 2015’. If you could donate just £1 it will make a big difference to the lives of local people in our community who are living with a terminal illness. Many thanks in advance of this extremely worthwhile fundraising opportunity.
Next Thursday we have arranged for all pupils in KS1 – Receptions, Year 1 and Year 2 to have a school dinner provided. This will give those younger children the opportunity to try a healthy school dinner when normally they may choose to have a packed lunch.
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).
