Head teacher welcome

Welcome to Newton Poppleford Primary School.

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you and your child to our happy and friendly school where all staff are committed to providing a quality education.

Our aim is to provide a supportive, happy and caring environment, in which all children can gain independence and develop academically, artistically, physically and socially. We also play a very important and active role in the local community.

This website provides you with some information about our school, but for you to really appreciate the atmosphere, I would like to invite you to visit us and experience the warmth, friendliness, and involvement of the staff and children. The achievements of every child are valued and we are confident that high standards of work in all areas of the curriculum will be apparent when you visit.

We have a committed, close-knit and very able teaching team, with many years’ experience and low staff turnover. Our policy is to welcome children from all backgrounds.

We take pride in helping all of our children to realise their full potential. Close co-operation between home and school is very important, and we hope that you will feel as much a part of our School as your child and that a close partnership will develop between home and School.

The doors of our School are always open to you.

I hope you find this website informative and I will be pleased to discuss any aspect of school life with you.
