Dear Parents/Carers, ‘No Pens Wednesday’ was a great success this week, with all sorts of exciting activities happening across the school; cooking apple cakes, singing, origami, art and crafts, PE and drama sketches to name just a few. Well done to all the children for working so well together in groups and pairs.
Dear Parents/Carers, Many thanks to all of our parents for supporting the NSPCC charity by sending in such generous donations. At the moment we have raised over £500.00 for them and there is still more coming in daily, which is fantastic. Next Tuesday, the NSPCC Co-ordinator Roisin is coming to lead a thank you assembly for the children and collect any remaining donations, but obviously she is delighted with the result.

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.
