Newtownhamilton Primary School Ready, Steady, GO! Let's Learn ! 

Hand in hand we Learn Together ! 

Newtownhamilton Primary School was last inspected by the ETI in November 2016 (Report published January 2017) During the inspection, the visiting team of inspectors concluded that, 
 
The quality of the pastoral care provision in the school is very good; this is characterised by the very welcoming, caring and inclusive school ethos. The children benefit from opportunities to be involved in decision-making through the effective School- and Eco- councils. 
The school has comprehensive arrangements in place for safeguarding children. These arrangements reflect the guidance issued by the Department of Education. In discussions with the inspectors, the children in years 5, 6 and 7 reported that they are happy and secure in school and know what to do if they have any concerns about their well-being. 
The children demonstrate good levels of thinking skills and personal capabilities; they interact well with one another and with adults and display very good levels of courtesy, politeness and consideration for others. They are involved in planning, making decisions about their work and setting personal targets. The children make good use of ICT to express their ideas and exhibit their work. 
The children demonstrate very positive attitudes towards mathematics. In the foundation stage, the children develop well their mathematical language, which is reinforced during play-based learning sessions. As they progress through the school, the children become confident in their understanding and application of number and across the school, the children, including those identified with additional needs, achieve good standards in numeracy. 
In Reception the children are well-settled and engage productively in learning through play. They share ideas and collaborate when taking on roles in imaginative play and are developing effectively their communication and investigative skills. The reception children engage in an appropriate play-based programme. The staff sustain good language development and sensitively promote the children’s confidence and learning through play. The children’s fine motor skills are developed effectively. 
The responses to the teaching and support staff questionnaires were positive and reflected the commitment of the staff to the children and the whole-school team approach. 
The school demonstrates the capacity to identify and bring about improvement in the interest of all the learners.
