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!
Mrs Gray
Headteacher
