Headteacher's Welcome

On behalf of all the staff and governors I would like to welcome you and your child to New Road Primary & Nursery School.  New Road is a small friendly school with high aspirations for its learning community.  We thrive very much on our family ethos, cultivating good manners and successful, motivated pupils. We strive to create a curriculum for all our children that equips them with the knowledge, skills and confidence that will unlock their potential and take them onto Lifelong Learning.


We want your child to settle quickly into our happy, productive school life.  We believe that the most important thing about New Road Primary school is the people in it and the contribution of everyone in our school is welcomed and valued.  We work in close partnership with other local schools  to drive standards up, and share our experience and expertise. 

Our aim is that  your child will leave us as a more caring, more knowledgeable, more thoughtful  and more self-assured  young person.

We warmly  invite you to come and meet with us, see our school in action, and join our  ambition for the future

Our History

New Road Primary School was opened in 1980 as a co-educational day school for children aged 4 to 11 years.

The school became an academy in January 2014 in partnership with Park Lane Primary School.  Both schools joined with Sir Harry Smith Community College to form the Aspire Learning Trust in July 2016.
