The years in a primary school are vital in a child’s life. At Horwood and Newton Tracey Primary School all of the staff are committed to helping your child achieve the best, to learn to care for others, to take chances and enjoy school. We understand you are making an important decision for your child’s future. You want the best for your child and will have many questions. I hope our website starts to answer some of these and give a flavour of our school.
We would be pleased to welcome you to our school for a visit, which is the best way to learn about us. Please contact Administrator, Carla Humphries or Headteacher, Lisa Eadie to arrange a time.
Horwood and Newton Tracey Community Primary School is a successful school which achieves and maintains high standards for all of its pupils, in all areas. In 2011, we were classified as Outstanding by OFSTED. We have a strong environmental ethos and have been awarded Activemark, Healthy Schools Plus Award and we are an International School, recognising the high quality global and international aspects of our curriculum.
The school has a Foundation Stage class for Nursery and Reception aged pupils and 3 other classes. It was first built in 1876, but there has been a school in Lovacott for more than 200 years. After various remodelling, it now has first class accommodation for staff and pupils, with 3 main classrooms and Foundation Stage class, ICT suite, Library, small group area, new play areas, Staffroom, Reception and Office. We also have access to the Parish Field for sports, a woodland area next to the field, our own allotment, which is central to the life of the school and the village hall for PE, performances etc.
