OFSTED says a "good" school with outstanding areas!

I am delighted to announce that following our Full Section 5 Inspection from Ofsted on 1-2nd October 2014, Newlands is now a securely “good” school with “outstanding” Leadership, Safety and Early Years Foundation Stage (Year R).


Since I started at the school in January 2013, I can honestly say it has been a pleasure working with such amazing children and a dedicated team of staff. During this time, the school has embraced its fantastic new building and site and an ever increasing number of parents are playing an active role in their children’s learning. This partnership working is ensuring the school goes from strength to strength and that the children are getting fantastic opportunities to support their learning.


Please take the time to read the full report by clicking the link in the "Our School" section of our website. This report will become “live” on the Ofsted website next Thursday for the whole world to see!


We are very proud of our journey in such a short space of time and I hope that when you read the report, you will be a proud as we are of Newlands Primary!


Thanks you for your on-going support.
