Welcome

From the Headteacher

Abi

Abi Misselbrook-Lovejoy
Our 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

ngps2023

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.

Newington Green Primary is a good and improving school. Decisive leadership from the headteacher supported by a very effective senior team has reversed a decline in performance and set the school firmly on an upward path. This is because they have high expectations of everyone, rigorously check performance and target support sharply to bring about improvements in both teaching and the progress of individuals.

- Ofsted 2011 on leadership

Within a pattern of good teaching there is some that is outstanding and drives learning forward at pace. Teachers use their careful assessment of the pupils to plan activities that are closely matched to the next steps in their learning.

- Ofsted 2011 on teaching

Outstanding care, guidance and support generates great confidence in the pupils when facing new experiences such as moving year group or transferring to secondary school. Account is taken of individual needs. By knowing pupils as individuals the school very carefully pinpoints support to meet their needs, particularly for the pupils whose circumstances make them potentially more vulnerable. The school’s sharp focus on early identification and intervention leads to positive outcomes and breeds confidence in the pupils.

- Ofsted 2011 on care for pupils

Pupils show respect for each other and are polite and courteous towards visitors. The new behaviour policy has led to greater consistency in the way all members of staff manage the pupils’ behaviour. As a result, pupils behave well and get on harmoniously together, irrespective of their backgrounds.
