In God’s Hands We Learn And Grow
We are a happy community where everybody works together to achieve success, where high standards are aimed for and all are given the support and skills necessary to achieve them. As an inclusive school everyone is valued and there is a Christian ethos of caring and respect within an environment that encourages a love of learning.
What parents say about us
2021 – Parent Questionnaire
At the end of the term we sent out a parent questionnaire to all of our families. Overall, they were very positive and supportive, but we did have a few responses that highlighted areas for us to improve. Our main area for improvement is communication, including communication of children’s learning. We know that the last year had a massive effect on our ability to communicate clearly and in a timely manner and we are keen to work towards this immediately.
100% of parents would recommend the school to another parent.
2020 – No parent questionnaire due to Covid-19 response.
In our parent questionnaire in 2019, 100% of the parents said that the school provided a solid foundation for their child’s future, that their child felt safe in school, that their child’s academic needs were well met, that the school encouraged a healthy lifestyle, that the school were pro-active in providing extended services and that children were encouraged to be part of the community
2018 – See Ofsted – Parent View information
In our July 2017 questionnaire, 100% of the parents said that their child enjoyed school and that their child felt safe. 96% felt that the school met the academic needs of their child; that the school provides a good foundation for the future; and that the school encourages the children to be part of the community.

” You, your team and the Governors deserve the highest praise for the way in which you have created an atmosphere of cohesion and generosity that permeates through to the wider village community. I am proud that my children attend such a compassionate well rounded school that extends beyond the physical walls and mere bureaucratic box ticking.”
“I just wanted to say a big thank you to Mrs Priestley and her team for putting on the Mothers Day Tea Party. It is really a very special event and one of my favourites at Newdigate. It is what differentiates Newdigate from other schools and makes it really special. I know a lot of effort must go into putting it together, all the flowers, food, table cloths…and I wanted to say it is very much appreciated. A big thank you!
