Head Teachers Welcome
On behalf of the children, staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Maindee Primary School. We hope you find our website clear, informative and easy to navigate. It is designed to give you a flavour of the vibrant life of our school, the work of our pupils and the high quality of education that we deliver.
I have great pleasure in being the Head Teacher of Maindee Primary. Unlocking the talent and realising the potential of every child in our school is my ultimate aim. All of the staff here recognise children as unique individuals with specific talents and needs and they work tirelessly to provide rich learning opportunities through a positive school experience. You will find our classrooms to be places which are hives of activity, full of learning and enquiry. The happiness and success of every child is central to our schools core purpose. Promoting high levels of achievement in all aspects of a child's development is important to us and reflected in all we do.
Our school is a large primary, set in spacious grounds close to Newport Town Centre. We have great facilities including two Timber Trail play areas, a forest school area and courtyard ponds, serving as outdoor classrooms. Visitors to our school always comment on the friendly atmosphere, well-mannered children and stimulating learning environment which promotes learning and celebrates achievement. We work hard to make sure everyone feels valued and part of our learning community.
We continuously work to enhance what we do. We are a learning community that educates and nurtures young minds and promotes values that enable children to live well in the world. We want our children to have ambitions, think independently, be resourceful, solve problems, and communicate well.
Education at Maindee Primary School is not simply about ensuring that children are academically ready for the next phase of their educational journey. But that children are filled with positive experiences, that they are aware of the endless possibilities that await them and are nurtured in order to develop within them, a confidence to embrace whatever comes their way.
Working with parents is an essential prerequisite to helping us achieve our vision as we believe that good strong partnerships, coupled with quality teaching and learning and high expectations at all times will help our pupils realise their full potentials, lead to higher levels of attainment, promote good citizenship and prepare pupils well for their secondary education. This website hopefully reflects that philosophy and commitment
I hope you will find much to interest you on our website. If you would like to know more about our school, you are very welcome to come and visit. Our children would be happy to show you around.
