From the Executive Headteacher


Abi Misselbrook-Lovejoy
Our Executive Headteacher

I hope you will find out through this website that Newington Green Primary School today is a vibrant and exciting place of learning, as it has been in times past.  We are building on the tradition of producing critical and influential thinkers who have shaped our world.

Our staff are committed to giving children the very best opportunity of making their mark on the world.  It is our hope that we have amongst our pupils the ‘movers and shakers’ of tomorrow.


History has shown us that Newington Green was a hugely influential area, and the school, a very important institution in shaping our national history.

There has been a school on this site since 1784, when Mary Wollstonecraft, the famous feminist, set up school for girls on this site, with her sister Eliza. In the following couple of years; inspired by her experiences with her school, Wollstonecraft wrote the feminist tract Thoughts on the Education of Daughters, a polemic about women’s education.

Newington Green has an established history of providing high quality education to the children of the local area.  Today we are a two form entry school (2 classes per year group), with a 52 place Nursery.

Newington Green is a friendly and exciting place to be. “Outstanding care, guidance and support generates great confidence in the pupils” (OFSTED 2011). We take pride in the achievements and successes of our school community.

The aim of our website is to give you a taste of what life at Newington Green is like, and provide updated information for parents, pupils and the wider school community.

I hope you enjoy your visit to our website. I am happy to meet you if you are interested in visiting our school. I do regular tours for visitors on a Monday morning, so please call our school office if you would like to come along.

Thanks for visiting our site!

The New School

An introduction to our new state-of-the-art facility


Welcome to our new school building, and front playground!

In December 2013 Islington started a phased programme, costing approximately £5 million, to transform the school learning environment, which as you can see has made a huge difference to our learning environment.

Our newly refurbished building provides state of the art classrooms, with bespoke furniture, integrates the Nursery class into the main building, and provides a new library, messy room, staff room and hall spaces for performance, physical education and the arts.  New technology is now an integral part of the building enabling us to use computing and other technologies to drive learning, in a way we could not do before.


Caring for each other
We are honest and  care  about each other.

Your work is highly valued by all and the school is an important part of the local community. Parents are very positive about all aspects of the school, and appreciate the support and care that they and their children receive. One parent said: ’My child is motivated to achieve as well as be a member of his community and give something back.’ You are committed to ensuring that every pupil, whatever their need, ability or background, achieves well and is given every opportunity to be successful.

Leaders have focused on the key areas for improvement identified at the last inspection. They show an innovative approach to staff professional development through the teacher learning community. This ensures that teachers work collaboratively to share research, expertise, planning and good practice.

School leaders have significantly improved attendance and behaviour across the school. Attendance is now above the national average for all groups of pupils. The home school support worker works with leaders to analyse attendance figures and put effective strategies in place to work with pupils and families. They work closely with the handful of pupils remaining who still struggle to attend school regularly.
