Dear Parents/Carers, We were delighted to host our first British Citizenship Ceremony here at Newtown last week in the school hall, which was organised by Trish Harrogate. The Lord Mayor of Exeter, Councillor Cynthia Thompson and her husband attended the Ceremony and they were extremely impressed with the great effort that the school had made to make the applicants feel at home. We organised a: fanfare procession played by Bert Parton our brass teacher, beautiful singing by the children in Hazel and Olive classes and tea and cakes made and served by the Newtown pupils at the end of the event. Many thanks to the parents for providing such wonderful cakes and also well done to Olive and Hazel class pupils who behaved impeccably all the way through the ceremony. In the future, we plan to host a Citizenship Ceremony annually as it is a great education for the older children to be part of it and to understand what it entails.
Dear Parents/Carers, We have planned in some workshops for parents to attend this term which we hope you will find interesting as well as informative. The dates and times are as follows:

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.
