Newnham Primary School

Newnham Primary School values each child as an individual. We are committed to promoting the highest possible levels of achievement for all learners.


At Newnham having a strong partnership with our parents is very important to us.

As a parent of a child at Newnham School you are automatically a member of F.O.N.S.

You can help raise funds in a number of ways:

  • Become a committee member and attend meetings, helping in the coordination of F.O.N.S
  • Help out at events. We always need extra hands for setting-up, being at and clearing up. Any hour you can lend us of your time is greatly welcomed.
  • Attend as many events as you can. We can organise lots of different events, but we need people to come to make them a success.
  • Keep up to date with FONS news and let people know about what's going on.

We also have strong links with the other academies in the David Ross Education Trust, and work closely with partners to provide new experiences and exciting opportunities for all pupils.
