Welcome to the New Village Primary School website.
Welcome back to one and all after the summer break. All the staff were excited and eager to see the children again after 6 weeks apart. It was lovely to see so many smiling faces and smart uniforms waiting to greet us when we opened the doors to the 2017-18 academic year.
I am looking forward to being New Village’s Head Teacher again this year and can assure you all that I will work tirelessly to make sure that we end the year with a school that we can be even more proud of – if that is even possible.
Our first changes this year have been to our Key Values. Last year, we celebrated the children’s DETERMINATION, COOPERATION and CREATIVITY by awarding rewards and Golden Team Points to children who showed these key values in their efforts and attitudes in school. They became the core of everything we did and valued.
This year we have added to these values and included: RESILIENCE, CURIOSITY and TOLERANCE. In the current climate of social unrest, we feel that tolerance is essential to create a future that we can all live in together. I look forward to seeing these values in our children, our staff and all the stakeholders who hold New Village dear.
