Happy children are Happy to Learn

At Newcastle Primary School we seek to provide a happy and caring environment for each child. We hope that by helping them fulfil their potential, celebrating their achievements, respecting their differences and encouraging mutual respect for others, we will foster self- esteem and provide a sound foundation for their future life.

The staff are committed to building trusting relationships with all the children throughout the school. We work hard to protect and safeguard our children in school and make them aware of what to do when they feel unsafe or worried.

If you ever have a concern as a parent please do not hesitate to contact a member of the Safeguarding Team for Child Protection. This is outlined in 'How a Parent can Raise a concern' document attached to this page.

Anti-Bullying Week 2021

We learned in a special Assembly today what bullying behaviour is and how we all have an important role to play in spreading kindness to fill other peoples' buckets. 

Remember, kindness fuels kindness! Be a bucket filler and not a bucker dipper!
