Newman Primary School (5505)

School Overview

Newman Primary School is a vibrant learning community that is located in the Pilbara town of Newman. Our school provides endless opportunities for its students to experience variety and success. Through the diversity of our programs, the enthusiasm of our staff and the support of our wider community we strive to fulfil the goals outlined in our strategic plan in order to deliver quality learning outcomes for students. We are an Independent Public School, enabling localised planning and decision making to improve the outcomes for all students. Students and staff are expected to work together to achieve personal excellence in all they do.

Our positive and challenging teaching programs allow all students to develop the necessary knowledge and skills to become confident learners in the 21st century. We are proud of our reputation in offering a diverse range of subjects including health, media, arts and physical education which are taught by specialist teachers. In addition to traditional learning area programs, Newman Primary School offers programs that seek to develop important social and emotional attributes of all students.

Newman Primary School has a strong ethos of being a caring and friendly multicultural community where every child is treated as a valued individual. The development of a consistent approach towards behaviour within the school has enabled a positive tone to flourish within the school. Our actions and conduct is guided by the four aspects of the Newman Primary School code- co-operation, safety, respect and responsibility. We encourage the development of student success and unity in all aspects of schooling through the use of our student house system.

Students are taught in large classrooms, all with access to the latest in information technology such as iPads, laptops and interactive whiteboards. Outside, early childhood students enjoy their challenging, yet safe, play environment that promotes co-operation and fine motor skill development. Basketball courts, cricket nets, a large oval and multiple play areas provide opportunities for students to interact and develop their movement skills. Newman Primary School is fortunate to have the generous support of BHP Billiton which allows current school programs to be enhanced. The school is fully air-conditioned providing a pleasant learning environment throughout the year.
