New Town Primary School ~ Nursery Class

New Town Primary School is a very special place, and we believe all of our children, whatever their background, have a right to good quality education and to shine as young people. We are very proud to be part of the Royal County of Berkshire Schools Trust, which is a Multi Academy Trust. Our school is almost in its 140th year of providing for the children of New Town, and so we are very lucky to be located next to the canal in a beautiful Victorian building, filled with light, space and fantastic opportunity.   We develop our children academically, behaviourally and spiritually throughout our school, and the staff are committed to working hard and doing the best for everyone who belongs to our school family. New Town is blessed to have a wide range of children and families from different nationalities, and we celebrate our diversity of faiths and experiences of different cultures throughout our school.

Education is at its best when we work together with our families who can help us to make the best of every learning opportunity and establish clear links between celebrating achievements at home as well as at school.  We are committed to an open door policy where parents and families are encouraged to talk to us and exchange information so that we can create a seamless relationship between home and school.

We welcome you to our wonderful school family.
