School Support

At Newton Tony CE VC school, we value every child and enjoy celebrating every step of progress made. Our children with identified Special Educational Needs or a disability are closely monitored and supported. Due to our small class sizes, we can provide every child with quality tailored provision.  We believe that children should ‘keep up’ rather than have to ‘catch up’ , so we introduce interventions in Year One and Year Two.  Miss Priestley (Head Teacher) is our Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) Lead. She works with our teaching staff and Teaching Assistants to help identify children who may have a additional needs and ensure that we support them throughout the school. Please email head@newtontony.wilts.sch.uk to contact Miss Priestley or phone 01980 629232.

Intervention Programmes

Our current intervention programmes are ‘Project X’ (focus on phonics and reading) and First Class @ number (focus on maths).  Children in Year One – Year Six benefit from daily individual ‘Precision Teaching’ to support reading, spelling and number patterns.
