Parent/ curriculum Information
Together we are Outstanding
We believe that for a child to be a successful learner, it is crucial that parents (every child's first and best teacher) work alongside our teachers and all other adults at school. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are at all concerned about your child's learning or well being.
We communicate regularly with parents via text and email so we can provide you with the most up to date information about events in school. Please contact the office if you are not receiving this information.
Working IN Partnership
As a school we set clear expectations of our staff, our pupils and our parents. We create a collaborative, mutually supportive environment focused on ensuring that every child realises their potential.
At Newton Burgoland we believe that children will only realise their potential when a true ‘partnership’ exists between school and home. We know that every parent wants the very best for their child and we work hard to ensure clear lines of communication between staff and parents.
