Welcome to Newport School, a school at the heart of its community, seeking to provide the very best education for the young people we serve.

Children are placed at the centre of all our decision making. We have a highly dedicated and enthusiastic staff team who are committed to ensuring that children achieve excellence, enjoy their time at school and develop into confident, resilient and independent learners. We want every child to leave Newport, not only with a love of learning that lasts a lifetime, but academically, socially and emotionally prepared for the future. We are proud of the range of activities and experiences offered, in addition to their core academic learning, which enrich the curriculum and develop children’s musical, sporting and artistic talents.  

Opossum Federation

Newport School is a member of the Opossum Federation of Schools. The Opossum Federation was formed in 2014 and has both soft and hard federated partners. The Federation currently comprises four primary schools in east London and works in partnership with other schools through informal networks or Service Level Agreements.

The Federation is built on three core objectives – enriching lives, unleashing possibilities and building futures; these aims are at the heart of all we do within our family of schools. We strive to ensure that our schools retain their individual identities whilst ensuring that they are reflective of our Federation’s ethos.

We aim for our schools to be inclusive organisations, where we recognise and celebrate all abilities and encourage our pupils to become independent thinkers. Staff from across our federated and partner schools support each other and work successfully in partnership to ensure all the pupils in our community receive the best education possible.

By working in partnership with a view to positively sharing our knowledge, experiences and skills, we are confident that we can benefit, not only as individuals, but also as a collective.

We hope you enjoy our website and that you get a flavour for the opportunities we provide at Newport School.
