At Newnham Primary School we believe that parental interest and involvement in our school is a vital factor in the educational development of the child. We are very proud of the support we receive.
Parents are encouraged to come in to school to help with many of our activities. These include cooking, swimming and games, art and craft activities and general help in the classrooms. Parents whose children will be attending school are invited to visit the school and see the children at work, and are welcome to join us on occasions such as sports days and concerts etc.
Children starting school in September are invited to spend two sessions with us towards the end of the summer term to enable them and their parents to meet their teachers and new friends.
A booklet is given to each set of parents at the first of these meetings. This explains everything which you are likely to need to know in your child's first few weeks with us.
Information about our most recent Ofsted report is available here.
Our performance against other local primary schools can be found here.
Before and After School Club
As part of our ongoing working relationship with RK Coaching we are offering on-site wrap around care on a daily basis. Opening hours for the breakfast club are 7.30am to school start and the afterschool club is from school close to 6.00pm. Both sessions include food and snacks.
Children will be given a wide range of activities to enjoy which include sport, arts and crafts, nature, help and support with homework and board games. Sessions cost £4.50 for Breakfast club and £7.00 for an afterschool club session. Booking is essential and the telephone no. is 07976 637847 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
