Our Values, Aims and Ethos
Newton Burgoland Primary School is a traditional school. We place a high premium on good manners, good behaviour and learning together.
Our school promotes the values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs; see 'Promoting British Values' download below.
"The school motto of ‘Together we can achieve excellence’ has been achieved not only academically but in all aspects of personal development, which are now outstanding."
