Newlands Spring Primary School

Working together towards success for all

Head of School's Welcome

Welcome to Newlands Spring Primary School Website.

We are a member of Attain Academy Partnership and the lead school in the Chelmsford Teaching School Alliance (CTSA).

We are a happy, successful school that combines high academic expectations with a child-centred approach and we seek to find and develop the potential in every pupil. Our mission statement is ‘Working together towards success for all’ and we truly believe that a team approach between children, parents and staff is the best way to educate children for their lives ahead.

Our website contains a wealth of useful information which will tell you about Newlands Spring and the way that our school community supports the education of our children.

Newlands Spring Primary School has excellent facilities and a friendly, caring and supportive ethos where our children are happy, engaged and focussed on their learning. Our creative curriculum and high expectations mean that children enjoy their learning whilst working to achieve their best. Our extensive range of extra-curricular activities offers opportunities for children to develop specific interests beyond the classroom and we provide 'wrap around care' at "Springers", our breakfast and after-school club.

Friends of Newlands Spring (FONS) is our parents’ association which works tirelessly to raise funds for the school through a variety of fayres, discos and other events through the year. 

This website is designed to help you if you are considering Newlands Spring Primary School as a school for your child, however nothing can replace a visit in person. We are always happy to meet you and show you our school. We are very proud of our learning community and the opportunities we provide for each child.

Mrs Natalie Hawkes

Head of School
