Welcome To Newbuildings PS!


Welcome to Newbuildings Primary School! Our motto at Newbuildings is ‘Believe and Achieve’.  We want to inspire all our pupils to believe in themselves and their abilities and that they can achieve throughout their whole lives. 


Learning Mole

Parents, do you want to support your child at home with learning and have some fun while you do it? Why not visit LearningMole.

LearningMole focuses on educating children of all ages in key skills of Maths, English and learning through crafts and learning videos. We offer advice and practical, interactive ideas to help parents challenge, teach and develop their children’s skills at home.


Why should you read with your child?

Why is reading so important?

Studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance. Here’s how you can get your child off to a great start.

Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.

In fact, reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background.

So, don't waste any more time. Sit down with your child today and get lost in a book!  For more information, call into school and have a chat with the class teacher who can help give you tips on developing a love of reading at home, or click on the link below which provides some great ideas and support for reading.

We are planning to offer some parent workshops and  would love to know what would interest you.  

Would you be interested in a writing workshop? Maybe maths would be more up your street?  What about programming and coding?
