Dear Parents/Carers, This week our children have been enjoying listening to David Heathfield telling his amazing stories which he collects from all over the world. Hazel and Olive classes have still their turn to come next week, but we thank David very much for visiting us and inspiring the pupils to become successful story tellers, just like he is.
Dear Parents/Carers, We are delighted to have David Heathfield, our local story teller back working with us again this year. He has spent his first two days working with Oak and Elm classes and they have really enjoyed listening to his stories, which he has collected from working all over the world. Over the next two weeks all of our classes will have an opportunity to work with him and they will learn how to use David’s techniques to enhance their own storytelling skills.

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.
