Newman Questionnaire


We would be really grateful if you could complete our E-safety questionnaire.

Esafety is about the protection of children whilst they are using the internet and digital technologies.This includes risk taking and inappropriate behaviour by children and young people.

While our school strives to empower your children with the knowledge to stay safe it is important that you have a general awareness of the risks and dangers yourself.

A Message From the Headteacher
Dear All

        Newman is a genuinely comprehensive school.  We believe that each student brings a special talent to our community.  Strong pastoral care is vital to our success and creates a happy, caring atmosphere. 

       As a smaller school, we get to know our students well; their wellbeing is our foundation.  This strong pastoral care enables us to support our students, not only with their academic work, but also in the varied extra-curricular activities which are so important as they develop.  We endeavour to meet their needs as individuals, and help them to use their talents, discover new skills and to face the future with optimism.

        We have high expectations of our students; we expect them to work hard, to play hard and to take a full part in the life of the school.  In return, we strive to provide the best teaching and guidance in a caring and supportive environment, where students are challenged and give of their best. 

        Newman is a Catholic school with Christian values.  Our school is open to all students, regardless of faith.  We simply ask that you share our aims for high standards of discipline, trust and respect, commitment to achievement and success for all students at every level of ability.

        Partnership with families is very important and we seek at all times to work effectively with parents and carers to make our students' days at Newman rewarding and successful.  Students are more likely to flourish when they know their parents and the school are working together for their benefit.  We invite you to choose Newman for your child's secondary education and play a vital role in this partnership.

School Information

Not So Strictly!!
Important info - Year 9 Maths

Dear Parent/Carer

It is the intention of the Maths Department to give all of the Year 9 pupils an end of Key Stage 3 assessment on Wednesday 2 April and Thursday 3 April.

This will ensure that we have current information to set the pupils before they embark upon their GCSE, which would be consistent across the department.
