Welcome to Newsham Primary School

Newsham Primary School is a vibrant, exciting and transformative place to learn and work. We are at the heart of fantastic community of Newsham, and we are supported by the parents and carers of our wonderful pupils. We have supported thousands of children in making the very best start in their schooling. Our innovative curriculum is backed by intensive pastoral care. We tailor learning to suit a significant range of needs. Families love the friendly welcome they receive at our school and we do whatever we can to help them whenever we can.

Our website aims to provide you with up to date information about our school vision, general organisation and curriculum activities. We also want children, parents and carers, our wider community and new visitors to have a window into all that we do and are so proud of here at Newsham.

If you would like more detailed information about the curriculum we offer at Newsham, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us through the contact information at the bottom of this page.
