Newton Tony Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School
Newton Tony School is a church school with core Christian values at its heart. You are welcome to read our latest SIAS report 2016. We welcome other faiths and denominations into our school.
The school holds a collective Act of Worship each day. Once a week, the pupils visit, St. Andrew’s Church for a service taken by the Bourne Valley Team. Attendance at Collective Worship is voluntary and parents can withdraw their children if they wish.
Perhaps the best recommendation of the inclusiveness of our school should come from the children:
“ When asked how he thought a child from a different cultural and religious background would react to the provision at Newton Tony a KS2 boy explained: ‘No one cares where you come from. No-one’s offensive. There is no racism here.’ A second child added, with great insight and understanding, that she felt a ‘strong Hindu’ would ‘appreciate the strong Christian ethos’ of the school.”SIAS REPORT 2011

Our school and church work closely together and we enjoy a close relationship.
