Welcome from the Head

Welcome to Newsome Junior School


On behalf of the Governors, staff and children here at Newsome Junior School, we would like to welcome you and thank you for visiting our website.


We pride ourselves on our warm and friendly atmosphere and hope that new parents and children will quickly feel part of our school family.


Our school stands in beautiful grounds overlooking Castle Hill. We are part of a federation with Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School and we work closely together to ensure that children in our shared community receive the best outcomes possible in their learning and personal development.


We have high expectations and it is important to us that the children are happy, confident, resilient and enjoy their learning; making the most of all the opportunities we have to offer. We ensure that all learning is purposeful and linked to children`s own experiences so they are engaged, challenged and become highly effective problem solvers and communicators.


Our curriculum is creative, inclusive and exciting. It provides children with a broad range of learning experiences which seek to nurture talents and acquire new skills in a hands-on and engaging way. It is our aim for all children to have a deeper understanding of the world around them and to become responsible and caring citizens of the future.


We hope that during their time with us your children will become confident, articulate, and inquisitive and endeavour to work in partnership with parents to achieve the very best provision for every individual.


Our website is your first opportunity to find out lots of information about our school but, we would love you to visit us if you are thinking of choosing our school for your child's Key Stage 2 setting, to experience the school environment and ethos for yourselves. You will be welcomed by a member of the Senior Leadership Team and some of our children, who would be more than happy to show you around. Simply contact our school office to make an appointment.


I am incredibly proud to be the Federation Headteacher of Berry Brow Infant and Nursery School and Newsome Junior School. The staff and I aim to make each child’s primary school days exciting and rewarding so that they develop a love of learning that will last all their lives. We look forward to showing you around our school.
