Old Newton Church of England Primary School

General Details

Old Newton is a small village situated 3 miles North of Stowmarket. Our school nestles in a lovely rural setting very close to St Mary’s Parish Church. Our playing fields are extensive, with mature trees which shade us from the sun at playtimes and with some exciting wooden play equipment and a designated wildlife area. Originally built in 1859, our school had an extension in 1999, which included an extra classroom. A new foundation stage classroom and outdoor area were built and opened in 2008. The school currently has an intake of 15 per year group giving 105 as the total possible number of pupils. Our four classes are small, and the children really enjoy working as a whole school when the opportunity is placed.

Local Offer Local Offer Record

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

We co-operate with Suffolk County Council so that the county’s Local Offer is a comprehensive, transparent and accessible picture of the range of services available for families of children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

We are currently reviewing the way that we meet the needs of children and young people with SEND in association with support from the Local Authority.

This policy is in keeping with Old Newton CEVCP Primary School’s (ONPS) aims, its teaching and learning policies, and its policy on equality of opportunity. The school is committed to providing an appropriate and high quality education to all children.  The school is committed to a policy of inclusion: we believe that all children, including those identified as having special educational needs have a common entitlement to a broad and balanced academic and social curriculum, which is accessible to them, and to be fully included in all aspects of school life.

We believe that all children should be equally valued in school.  We will strive to eliminate prejudice and discrimination, and to develop an environment where all children can flourish and feel safe.

We believe that educational inclusion is about equal opportunities for all learners, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, impairment, attainment and background.  We pay particular attention to the provision for and the achievement of different groups of learners:


  • girls and boys, men and women 
  • minority ethnic and faith groups, travellers, asylum seekers and refugees
  • learners who need support to learn English as an additional language (EAL)
  • learners with Special Educational Needs (SEN)
  • learners who are disabled
  • those who are More Able, gifted and talented (AGT)
  • those who are looked after by the local authority (LAC)
  • others such as those who are sick; those who are young carers; those who are in families under stress;  
  • any learners who are at risk of disaffection and exclusion
