Welcome to Our School

  • Welcome to the website for Newbarns Primary and Nursery School. I hope this provides you with some information about our school. In addition please do not hesitate to telephone or email if you have any specific questions or wish to make an appointment to look around.


    Newbarns is an outstanding school. Ofsted judged it to be excellent in 1998 and 2004. In 2008 and again in 2013 it was given the highest possible accolade of being "an outstanding school." The school was judged "outstanding" in every area and has been twice listed as one of the top 100 Primary Schools in England. The exceptional ethos within the school, the family atmosphere, the outstanding attitudes and behaviour of pupils, and the superb level of care and guidance provided for every child, have been consistently praised by Ofsted.


    The school prides itself in developing "the whole child."  This includes, not only high academic achievement and progress regardless of ability, but also enabling children to become mature, responsible young adults.


    Throughout their time at Newbarns School, children are equipped to fulfil their potential in all areas of the curriculum. The wonderful facilities provide the opportunity to enhance the education of primary school children, thereby equipping them fully for life in the twenty first century.


    The partnership between parents, the school and its community is crucial; by working closely together can we achieve the very best for each child.


    All of the information on this website can be obtained from the school office in a printed version.

    Yours sincerely,
