Take a look around Newington primary Reception classes

Newington Community Primary School is inviting parents of little ones due to start in Reception year in 2018  to see the school in action.

Newington was recently graded Outstanding in its Ofsted inspection and parents can visit Reception classes every Wednesday at 9:15am throughout November and December to see why it received the top grade.

Ofsted inspectors said Newington was “exceptional,” “inspirational” and noted that: “The school’s work to promote pupils’ welfare is remarkable. No stone is left unturned in the quest to ensure that pupils and families receive the help they need. Safeguarding procedures are effective.”

The school is also celebrating being amongst the top 20 per cent of schools in the UK for progress in maths and literacy.

The year on year improvement in the key subjects is verified by SATS results which are published on the Department for education website.

Head teacher Cliff Stokes said: “This progress is very important to our whole school community and it is a fantastic achievement.”

The school’s approach to the vital core areas means that as well as being dedicated timetable lessons, the subjects are also taught the across the curriculum, for example in history and geography.
