Welcome to New Road Primary
Welcome to our website which I hope you will find useful and informative.
My name is Mrs Forrest and I am the Headteacher. I am passionate about providing the best learning experiences for your children and am here to serve the children and their families.
This year, we have introduced the concept of Growth Mindsets to our children and they are already buzzing. The children have been told that no matter how clever they think they are, they can all learn but some of us learn at different speeds.
Our children know that ‘failing’ is part of learning but we never give up!
To encourage the children we have numerous awards and weekly certificates and we praise them by saying not how clever they are but by noting how hard they have tried.
Our school motto is “Yes I can!” and I firmly believe that the children are already beginning to apply this attitude to their learning.
School life is equally important and we have many clubs, trips, community events and sports which ensure the children receive a rounded education. The children also share the achievements in clubs they attend outside school (e.g. Beavers and Dance) in our Celebration Assemblies which encourages others to develop new interests.
Our school is very diverse and the Governors, staff and all children are very enthusiastic and welcoming.
“Leaders welcome pupils from a diverse range of background, working closely with outside agencies to care for them well.”
