Starting School 2021

 

Starting school is a brand new experience for both pupils and parents. New faces, new routines and times to follow.

We are proud of our school and look forward to welcoming your child into the Newton Westpark family.

 

Due to COVID we are unable to do our normal INSPIRE sessions but we will be holding a parent information evening on Tuesday 25th May at 4:30pm via Zoom.

We hope you are able to attend this where we will share more information with you, including our welcome pack.

 

If for any reason you are unable to attend we will post the welcome pack to you.

 

Please take some time to explore our page and website.

 

We are always happy to help and if you ever need to talk then please feel free to ring or email us.

All about me


I am delighted to join the Newton Westpark team as the Reception teacher. I have a passion for early years and love giving young children the tools and confidence to learn and fulfil their full potential. I live with my husband, our daughter and cat named Primrose. I enjoy going to the cinema, theme parks, day trips to the beach and spending time with my family and friends. Up until the age of 16, I went to stage school. I now use my 'singing skills' to teach young children nursery rhymes and songs!
