Early Years - New starters for September 2020


Welcome to our dedicated Early Years page for children starting at Newtown in September 2020.


We are so pleased you have chosen our school and look forward to welcoming you into the school community. On this page you will find all the information you will need to know in the lead up to your little one starting school.  During this difficult time we want to be able to offer you and your child the most effective way to feel ready for school once we are all able to meet up again.


On here you will find links to videos that introduce you to the headteacher of our school, your child’s teacher and some lovely photos of children playing, learning and enjoying school.  There is a parent’s guide on here too. Please take the time to read this through and share the picture part with your child. I would also suggest you watch the video of photos with your child too, this will allow them to have an insight into what it will be like for them when they start school in September.


Please also take the time to explore the rest of our website, as it is full of so much useful information. The uniform section is particularly helpful and will tell you where you can purchase uniform ready for school. You can find this information under the parents tab on the main page.


As the Early years leader at Newtown I am delighted that you and your family are joining our school community and am available to answer any queries or questions you may have. You can contact me on


I look forward to meeting you and your little one very soon.
