Introduction from Ms Marshall 


Welcome to the EYFS

Executive Headteacher's Message

I am delighted to welcome you to Newport CE Primary and share an overview of all our school has to offer.

Our talented and committed staff team strive to provide the highest quality learning opportunities, with the aim of ensuring every child both enjoys and achieves highly throughout their time with us.

As a church school we recognise that every child is unique, and that our core purpose is to create a nurturing learning environment based on Christian values such as:

‘Endurance, Fellowship, Compassion and Peace’

In doing so we help each child to grow as a person; spiritually, socially and academically.

Our curriculum is designed to develop the key skills of literacy and numeracy alongside a range of ‘discovery learning experiences which offer the children the chance to become a ‘scientist, historian, geographer, artist, musician, actor, sportsperson, designer or computing expert’.  Our curriculum is enhanced with regular day trips, visiting experts, theatre groups, themed events and competitions, to name but a few.

We believe our role is to provide a rich set of experiences and challenges which allow each child to discover new interests, build their knowledge and skill, develop their talents and achieve a sense of success. 

We believe in partnership and know we will only be able to provide the very best for your child if we work together to ensure the very best outcomes. We have high expectations of every child in terms of behaviour, attitude and willingness to give their best in all they do. We recognise and celebrate achievements through a variety of school rewards – and share these with parents through celebration worships, newsletters and our very popular ‘Newport CE APP’.

Our open door policy ensures that parents can keep in contact, share achievements and if the need arise, discuss and resolve any concerns with the appropriate member of staff.

Chair of Governor's Message

Welcome to Newport C.E. Primary and for considering our school for your child's education. We hope that the website provides an invaluable insight into the school life to enable you to make an informed decision.  In my role as Chair of Governors, I acknowledge that choosing a primary school for your children is one of the most important decisions you can make.

The school is situated in the heart of Newport and for many years has been an integral part of the local community. Being a church school, Christian beliefs and values are at the core of all that we do and we are committed to ensuring that every child is nurtured academically, emotionally and spiritually.  

The governors support the school staff with their dedication to a programme of continuous improvement by focusing on our three core strategic functions – setting vision, ethos and strategic direction; whilst holding school leaders to account for the performance of pupils and the performance management of staff; and ensuring the school’s finances are well spent.

The governors recognise that it is important that you choose the primary school that is right for your child, and we sincerely hope that you choose our school.  We look forward to welcoming all parents and children joining our school community in the future.

However, if you have further questions or need more information please do not hesitate to make contact with the school.
