"Let Your Light Shine"
Welcome to Newtown Church of England Primary School
I would like to welcome you to our website and to offer you an insight into our school. This will give you a flavour of what we offer at Newtown but please arrange a visit if you would like to find out more.
Newtown is a small village in the beautiful Shropshire countryside in between Wem and Ellesmere. We view our school community as a family which works in harmonious partnership to provide new and exciting opportunities for our children to become active learners.
We are proud to be a Church of England School with the vision ‘Let Your Light Shine’ as stated in Matthew 5:16 Sermon on the Mount. This translates into our children being nurtured as unique individuals with skills and talents which we seek to identify and promote through activities both within the school and beyond.
We believe that learning is most productive when children are happy and engaged so we aim to make learning fun! We nurture our pupils to develop resilience and the tenacity to be successful in their goals and to grow into happy, healthy, ambitious individuals.
We want to broaden the horizons of our children - showing them that in the outside world everything and anything is possible. Our school grounds offer a wide range of opportunities for children to expand their learning beyond the classroom; educational and residential visits are an integral aspect of our curriculum.
With strong family values, we nurture our children to become proud of themselves and to uphold the best of British Values in their attitudes and behaviour. Through collective worship and daily activities, we encourage children to develop spiritually and to be reflective learners.
Please take some time to explore our website and please contact me if you'd like to visit the school.
