Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

I hope everyone has enjoyed a lovely Christmas break from school and is delighted school has reopened for the Spring term!  The children returned on Tuesday with enthusiasm and are all settled back in classes, working hard and responding to the challenge and high expectations we demand from them every day!  They know our expectations come with high levels of love, care and mutual respect and this helps to create a very special atmosphere throughout school.

Please help us in our drive to raise standards of attendance and punctuality throughout 2016.  Everything we are striving to achieve at Newsham is only possible if the children are actually in school.  Please trust us to care for your children who may have coughs, colds, aches and pains.  We can arrange indoor playtime for individual children who aren’t feeling fully well but our school is warm, dry and we have a whole team of staff qualified in first aid so on lots of occasions, we are fully equipped to deal with children feeling a little under the weather.  Please just phone us and check if you are not sure if your child is well enough to attend school.  Thanks so much for your support.
