Newtownhamilton Primary School was last inspected by the ETI in November 2009. During the inspection, the visiting team of inspectors concluded that,
'The children's behaviour is very good, they are well motivated and work well both individually and collaboratively on group activities.'
'The teachers are very hard-working and committed to the education and care of the children, and are very well supported by the classroom assistants.'
'The provision for special educational needs is very good.'
'The quality of the arrangements for pastoral care is very good. This is evident through the excellent working relationships at all levels and the supportive and inclusive ethos developed in the school'
