Many thanks to all of our parents and grandparents who attended our May Day celebrations this afternoon and to Chris Snell who came along to crown our May Day queen. The children all danced beautifully today and for our youngest children this was the very first time that they have participated in our Newtown May Day event. I think we are one of the only schools in Exeter who still dance the traditional dances in May and it is an event that we do intend to continue with.

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.
