Dear Parents & Carers,
It has been a very important week in the school calendar, and before I start talking about individual events that have taken place, I would first like to say how happy and proud I am of everyone who works and studies at Newport.
Teachers and staff have worked extremely hard this week, and in the run up, so I thank them for everything they have done.
Children in every year group, but especially Year 6, have had a long and busy week. I thank all of them for being
sensible, well behaved and for working hard.
Year 6 have been working all week on their SAT’s tests. This is always a stressful time for children and staff, but I was pleased to see and hear everything running smoothly.
This year, Newport was visited by an external SAT’s moderator who came along to check that all our systems and procedures were correct. She left the school happy and confident that everything continues to work well and shows exemplary practice. I am sure that our results will reflect all this hard work and dedication, and I look forward to receiving them in the near future.
Next week continues to be busy. It is the start of Enterprise Week throughout the school, and there are a number of exciting activities taking place.
Years1, 2, 3 and 4 will be working on their enterprise products to promote a healthy lifestyle.
Year 5 will continue to look at the development and regeneration of Francis Road, and will finish off their projects about this. I look forward to seeing their ideas about how to regenerate the local area.
Year 6 are soon to be off on their trip to Edinburgh. Over the coming days they will be creating an event or product to raise funds for this trip. Hopefully they will be inspired and create something that will raise lots of money for them to spend while they are away.
This Saturday all of the children on Shine will be visiting the Peacock Theatre in Holborn to watch a performance of ‘Some LIke it Hip-Hop’. They will be joined by 12 children from Year 5 who have been chosen by their class teachers for their excellent work and behaviour.
Parents/carers don’t forget that half term is from the 27th May to 31st May
And finally, thank you to Kiana Myers and her family for bringing Flopsie the rabbit into school this week who is settling into his new home in Reception, we hope he enjoys life as a member of Newport School community.

Some children entering the school by the Twickenham Road entrance are not using the zebra crossing! Instead they wait for a gap in the traffic and cross anywhere!
The Leyton Children's Centre need safety gates to give to families.
