We are delighted that you are considering Newtown C of E Primary School to begin your child's educational journey and we would love to welcome you to our school community.
Normally we would have various events planned for you to visit including school tours and the opportunity to meet Mrs Howlett, Headteacher, at our annual Coffee and Cake events; however due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we are not able to organise these events due to Hampshire County Council risk assessments.
However we have organised alternative exciting events and activities for you, to introduce you to our wonderful school:
- A virtual tour video for you to watch as a family, introduced by Mrs. Howlett, Headteacher, which will give you an insight into the amazing learning experiences your child will receive and to see the school in action! Please visit our video resource centre on our website: https://newtown-cofe-vc-primary-school.primarysite.media/
- A presentation from Mrs. Watson, EYFS Leader (Year R) which details important information about starting school at Newtown C of E Primary School, from the EYFS/Year R team (see below)
- Our school prospectus (see below)
- Statutory information about our school
- New for 2021! Personalised telephone calls to you from Mrs Howlett, Headteacher - Call the school office on 02392 584048 to arrange a telephone appointment. Your child will then receive a Newtown C of E Primary School goody bag in the post.

Starting school toolkit
Starting a new school is a big step for pupils and parents, not only in terms of education but also as it involves going to a new location with an often unfamiliar journey.
This toolkit has been designed to support parents and pupils through the process of planning their new routes to school over the summer holidays and, as much as is possible, making them active, safe and sustainable.
There are separate downloadable booklets for pupils starting in Year R, Year 3 and Year 7, with two brand new humorous and historical films to enjoy, commissioned especially for this project. There are also lots of ideas for follow-up activities and links to many fantastic resources to support active travel.
The My Journey website also has lots of information for parents on the following:
- Social distancing on the school run
- Walking for wellbeing
Please visit the website pages below for all the information.
