Dear Parents and Guardians,

The staff, governors and I are very pleased that you are interested in our school and hope very much that you enjoy reading about the life we all share here. If any of your queries are left unanswered then please feel free to contact me at school.

Newbold Church of England Primary School is a church school with close links to the St. John the Evangelist situated on St. John’s Road. We are committed to providing a stimulating, caring and Christian learning environment.

It is our goal to provide high quality education in which children are actively encouraged to achieve their potential. Our staff work closely together to ensure that our curriculum is both broad and balanced and allows every child to shine.

We invest in excellence by encouraging the children to believe in themselves. Positive language is used at all times, even when circumstances demand chastisement and this ensures that all the children in our care learn to respect themselves, care for others and for their environment.

Parents are partners in the education of their children and we value your support. You are warmly welcomed into our classrooms either to help the whole class, or to discuss how you may help your child at home.

We look forward to working with you in the best interests of your child and very much hope that this will be the beginning of a successful and enjoyable association between you, your child and our school.

With warmest wishes,

David Mayo-Braiden


Core Beliefs

Our overall aim is to educate every child in our care to achieve his or her potential within a caring and Christian environment. We hope that our children will leave us confident to face their future and to make a positive contribution to the society in which they live.

The School's Aims and Objectives

We are a school whose foundation is solidly built on the teachings of Christ’s Gospel and our aims for our school community reflect these values.

Within the contexts of the Christian faith:

  • We provide a happy and secure learning environment for all our children in which to grow and achieve their true potential, academically, physically, socially and spiritually.

  • We provide an environment where our children can develop independence, interdependence, self-confidence and self esteem.

  • We provide a stimulating learning environment where our children can develop lively, inquiring minds and enjoy learning.

  • We offer all our children equal access to a broad and balanced curriculum.

  • We meet every child’s needs, extending individual talents and helping to overcome special difficulties.

  • We foster respect for each other. We expect every member of our community to show care and consideration for others and to be kind and polite to everyone.

  • We endeavour to work in full partnership with parents, recognising that they are the child’s first teachers and can offer invaluable help in understanding the needs of the individual.

  • We hope to play a full part in our local community and make full use of our local environment.

  • We want our children to leave us excited at the prospect of the challenges offered by their secondary school.

  • We are committed to a programme of professional development for all our staff, which will ultimately enhance the learning opportunities for our children.


The children are taught in two age groups, known as Key Stage 1, ( 5-7 years) and Key Stage 2, (7-11 years).

We are concerned with the all round development of your child; we aim for each pupil to be confident and successful.

Delivery of the National Curriculum is carefully planned, monitored and evaluated. We involve a variety of approaches to teaching and learning appropriate to the needs of the children, providing continuity and progression. English, Mathematics, Science and Information Technology are known as the core subjects. History, Geography, Art, Design and Technology, Music and Physical Education (P.E.), R.E and Modern Foreign Languages are known as foundation Subjects.

The wider curriculum includes Personal and Social Education, Citizenship and Health Education, of which Sex & Relationships Education is an important part.

In addition, we offer a variety of school clubs. We also take the two top junior classes on an annual residential visit.

House System

The school operates a house system.

Pupils are awarded points for their house in reward for good work and behaviour.









The houses compete at the annual sports day in July.



We believe that some homework will help your child to achieve his/her potential and is good preparation for secondary school. In addition it clarifies the strong links between home and school and the need for both parties to work together to ensure a good education for our children.

At KS1 the children are expected to read at least three times a week and we ask for your full support in this. They will also be asked to learn a few spellings each week and occasionally complete a little research to support their topic work.

At KS2 the children will be expected to read at least three times a week and learn spellings and tables for a test later in the week. Every weekend the children will be set a piece of written work. Once or twice a year (at the discretion of the teacher) your child will be expected to complete a research project in support of History or Geography work.

Special Educational Needs

Our school follows the code of practice on the identification and assessment of Special Educational needs. Initial responsibility for children with special educational needs lies with the teacher who is helped by the co-ordinator for special needs and then by county advisory staff. Parents are kept informed at all stages and are involved with the development of the Individual Education Plans.


Activities on offer may include:

  • Athletics

  • Basketball

Clubs run at lunchtimes or after school (until 4.15pm) between the October and May half-term holidays, except for the first and last week of each half-term.

This academic year clubs will take place between 5th November 2007 and 23rd May 2008.

Book Club

The school runs a book club each term, managed by one of our parents.

The children are given a choice of books appropriate to their age for parents to purchase. The school benefits in two ways; the joy of reading is promoted, and we receive books for our library as commission.
