RED NOSE DAY—FUNDRAISING
As part of ‘Red Nose Day’ we will be fundraising by selling noses in school from Monday 2nd March.
Minimum donation of a £1.
Waste Week begins on the 2nd March!
For this we will be recycling textiles through the ‘Science into Schools Scheme’. We are asking everyone to look deep into their wardrobes again for unwanted items they can donate. The more we collect the more points we earn to exchange for new Science equipment. After the success of our last textile collection for Science into Schools, we have already saved over 10,000 points. In fact, the Science into Schools Scheme don’t usually collect from the Isle of Wight but because we always donate so much they are keen to collect from us!
Please start bringing in your bags of unwanted textiles now! They can be left at the back of the hall. Bags will be handed out after half-term, however, the office do have some spare ones if you need them before the holiday.
Our collection day is Friday 20th March 2015.
We are able to recycle all clean, dry clothes, including bed linen, towels, and curtains. We can also collect trainers, boots, sandals and shoes if they are in pairs. Unfortunately, we cannot collect pillows, duvets, sleeping bags, slippers or single shoes.

Thank you very much.
Happy New Year!
Dear Parents and Carers,
The children have settled back into the school routine well after the excitement of the Christmas holidays. I am delighted with the welcome the pupils and staff at the school have given me this week, as I begin my time as Headteacher. All new things bring some changes and we will endeavour to implement these without unsettling the children as far as possible. However please be assured, that the whole school staff are determined and are continuing to work hard to make Newport C of E one of the best schools on the Island. My door is always open, if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to speak to me. Happy New Year!
