Welcome to Newport Church of England (V.A.) Primary School 

Newport Church of England (V.A.) Primary School is a friendly Church school set in a quiet and attractive environment. Children start at our school when they are four years old, moving to secondary school at eleven.

The children have been celebrating the schools 200th Anniversary.

They were delighted to have a visit from the Rt Rev Bishop of Portsmouth on Thursday 3rd March. Bishop Christopher, accompanied by Archdeacon Peter Sutton who is one of the school governors, led two worship assemblies where the schools Christian values of love, trust and hope were blessed.

Bishop Christopher was then treated to a tour of the school by two of the Newport Ambassadors. He spent time in each class talking to the children about their work.

The children were thrilled to have their worship led by Bishop Christopher. They really enjoyed meeting him and talking about the work they had done as part of our 200th anniversary.

What a busy and exciting Anniversary week we had had!  There has been a real buzz around the school.  The children have all been finding out about different eras and events during the last 200 years including the invention of stained glass windowsand the story of Valentine Gray.

 Andrew Turner, our local M.P. visited school on our celebration day and was treated to a tour of our school by two of our Ambassadors to see all the work in action.  He was particularly impressed with the enthusiasm with which our children talked about their learning.

 One of our parents, Leela Barratt, very kindly made and donated an amazing birthday cake.  It really was a work of art and almost too good to eat.  All the children sang happy birthday to the school and enjoyed a piece of birthday cake this afternoon.  Some children and staff who had dressed in 1816 regalia looked amazing, a lot of hard work had gone into some of their outfits.  A great end to a great week of celebrations, with still more to come.

 We would like to say thank you to Morrisons who donated 2 lovely cakes for our anniversary.

 On Thursday the cook created our special anniversary meal, designed by the competition winners, and very much enjoyed by all.

 If anyone is interested we have found some photos of the original school building, showing how the school has changed over the years.  We have also found old log books which the headteachers filled in every day to say what had happened.  They tell us a lot about life in the school.  If you would like to come in and have a look at some please let the office know and we will arrange a time.

Pupils from our school attended the service to commemorate the reign of Her Majesty the Queen on Sunday 13th September at Newport Minster.  Our two representatives, along with pupils from other schools, carried roses to the front. These were arranged into a floral arrangement which was dedicated to Her Royal Highness, the Queen.  It was an honour to be present at this special service and to reflect on the achievements and qualities of our Queen.
