We aim to provide a holistic approach to unlocking every child’s potential and love for life-long learning within a stimulating learning environment where everyone is valued and every child can achieve their full potential. Our staff, governors, parents and pupils aim to celebrate diversity and the cultures of our community in an inclusive, happy and safe environment.
STATEMENT OF AIMS AT NEWTON FARM SCHOOL
At Newton Farm School we hope to encourage all pupils to develop lively, enquiring minds, with which to acquire the knowledge and skills they will need throughout their lives. We help them to understand the world in which they live, and the inter-dependence of individuals, groups and nations. We believe that it is important that pupils appreciate human achievement, and have both tolerance and respect for the religions, moral values and ways of life to all people.
