We are very lucky at Newcastle Primary School as our school building sits squarely within wonderful school grounds surrounded by inspiring rolling countryside.
Inside our school building we have bright vibrant classrooms with plenty of space for learning activities and lessons. We have quiet reading areas and in key stage one there are areas for adventure and creation (and building castles!). We have a large covered area outside which allows us to go out stretch our legs and ride trikes even when it’s raining. Our specially built children’s toilets make things easier for the little ones too.
Our central hall provides space for Gym, assemblies and performances as well as being our dining hall at lunch time.
Our school grounds extend to the front with a large playground with wooden climbing play park alongside. The school fields extend around the side of the school, where we have more challenging climbing equipment, and then open out onto our large playing field at the rear.
Beyond the playing field we have a wooded area where the children love to explore. This is also where we have our forest school and an outdoor classroom. We also have other wonderful things to discover such as our large musical chime bars!
