Our Vision

Our vision is to create a federation of schools where children succeed and are proud of their achievements. We strive to actively promote British values and prepare our children to become role models, thus preparing them for life in modern Britain. To do this, we create a respectful, inclusive atmosphere that is welcoming, fun, friendly and safe. We are a federation that nurtures curiosity and creativity through an inspiring, challenging and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all that we do. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in an environment where success is celebrated. Our ethos is delivered through these aims for our children:

• To teach tolerance and respect to all children. All children are valued individuals and should be respected.

• To encourage everyone to have high expectations of themselves in an environment where they can reach their personal best.

• To promote equality of opportunity and aim to develop the children’s awareness of moral, cultural, social and spiritual issues.

• To have engaging and challenging opportunities through a creative and inclusive curriculum within the school and beyond into the local community.

• To encourage excellence by sharing successes and supporting the children to reach their full potential.

Through the aims of the Federation, we actively promote lifelong learning whilst ensuring the children respect one another, enjoy their school experiences and achieve their personal best.

P.E. and Sports Premium



Primary Sports Funding 2018

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2018 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is being allocated to primary school headteachers.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

How much do we get?

We received £21389 this year.   We participate in district competitions and tournaments through membership of the Sports Collective.  We use the Sports Premium Funding to pay for the School Partnership Collective. This is how we propose to continue to use this funding in the future as we can see the difference it is making to our children's P.E education and opportunities offered to them.  

At Newtons, we have always been committed to providing children with excellent sporting provision. We are delighted to have received the Gold School Games Kitemark Award to recognise our achievements in promoting physical activities. With the added funding, we aim to build on this further, ensuring that each child experiences the benefits.
