What the school says...

Isaac Newton Primary School is a forward looking, progressive primary school where children are offered the highest standard of teaching and are presented with the best opportunities for learning.

Last year the school underwent a major rebuild (1,000,000). The new buildings were officially opened in January 2006. They have given us the opportunity to develop learning areas more suited to the age and developmental needs of our children.

Since the start of the school year we have implemented a number of other new initiatives:

1. The establishment of a learning support unit, 'Apple Seeds'.
2. A weekly newsletter linked to our school website.
3. The installation of interactive whiteboards in all classes.
4. Wireless network coverage across the whole school.
5. Updated pupil tracking system.
6. Successful inclusion programme.
7. School travel plan.
8. Focussed intervention strategies (catch up programmes).
9. Gifted and talented programme.

In May 2006 OFSTED identified Isaac Newton as a good school.

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Can be left blank but, if you can, think of a few words that will bring a smile.

Special Education Needs

The school has recently adopted its own system of tracking in KS1 and KS2. In literacy and numeracy, assessment and target setting is based on the initial national curriculum levels which are recorded for every child at the start of each year. Every child is then given a set of ‘step by step’ target sheets in English and maths which are used to assess progress and help in planning. Progress is monitored termly using point scores. The new database and tracking system has provided all staff with an overall picture of their children in a whole school context and has also enabled us to provide more focussed intervention. Children with SEN are identified from the Nursery stage onwards via baseline, statutory,non-statutory and in-school testing and monitoring by teaching and support staff. Those identified are allocated time with a Learning Support Assistant (LSA), teaching is differentiated and groups are withdrawn as necessary for intensive remediation following strategies specified in Individual Education Plans (IEP's).
