Visitors arriving at our outstanding school tell us it feels like coming home; it feels safe like a bear hug from mum or dad; it feels like being snuggled up in a cosy blanket- this is our ethos:
Together we achieve Excellence
Everyone welcome everyone special everyone a winner
Small classes, amazing learners, dedicated teachers. A truly outstanding school in the heart of the country.
The best school in the Milky-Way!
To be a learner at Newton Burgoland Primary School is to thrive and excel. Reading takes centre stage because we know that reading for pleasure determines future success. The wider curriculum is rich and exciting, carefully designed and tailored to meet individual needs. Learners move seamlessly from their nurseries and pre-schools - continuing to enjoy forest schools and outdoor learning from foundation to year 6.
The school ethos is one of unconditional positive regard for all with a focus on building long-lasting, and positive relationships within, and beyond our school gates. We have built our school around the children and families that we serve.
Our pupils are all successful learners; they have strong learning habits and are proud to belong Newton Burgoland Primary School. I am privileged to be their Headteacher.
Welcome to Newton Burgoland Primary School.

High Expectations for all
We believe that learning should be an amazing adventure for all children, enabling them to experience challenge and the joy of achievement across and within a rich, diverse curriculum. We want the best for our learners.
We believe in the value of community, where every member is a contributor to the greater sum of the whole. We believe our children are entitled to have it all: knowledge, skills, happiness and a thirst to live and learn.
We challenge and expect our learners and community members to be:
- Stewards for the future of mankind
- Role models for the world we want
- Guardians of equality and diversity, standing up for their own rights and the rights of others to be themselves.
In 2011 Ofsted rated us as Outstanding. I am proud and honoured to be the Headteacher of such an amazing school and I promise to nurture your child as I do my own.
I make these promises to you as a parent member of our community.

- Value your child as an individual with unique talents and skills
- Care for your child as I care for my own
- Listen carefully to you and your child
- Help your child to be the very best they can be
- Smile first
- Work in partnership with you to enable your child to thrive and learn.
- Support the development of lifelong learning habits
- Forgive and forget
