Welcome to Niton Primary School
” I would like to welcome you and your family to Niton Primary School. As a school community we hope to make all new members feel welcome and we look forward to getting to know you over the forthcoming years.
We have 153 children at our school who are all different and therefore need to be treated differently. Every day we see success for all our children, not only in their academic achievement but also in their curious, confident and resilient approach to learning and all they undertake. We want to achieve success for all.
At Niton we aim to provide an exciting learning environment of the highest standard, to give your child the best possible start to school. This website gives essential information about our school and the way we work. There may be many more questions that you have in relation to your own child that are not addressed here. Please feel free to contact the school to arrange a time to come and look around during the working day and ask about any other information that you might need. “
Happy Summer Holidays Everyone.

It seems like only yesterday that our Year 6 pupils were just starting out in Reception or even pre-school! We are really proud of them – each one has been a fantastic ambassador for Niton School. We are all very sad to see them go, but we wish them all the very best as they continue their learning journeys……

Well done everyone!
I am delighted to share the following information with all parents and carers . Please note the tests (Year 2 and 6) were tougher, the expectations were higher, and the national results are much lower than previous assessments. However……
Reception 86% of our children met the Good Level of Development (34% exceeding!) 2015 GLD National Average 66%
Year 1 100% of children met the national expectation for the phonic screen
Year 2 84% of the children who took the phonic screen passed this year.
Year 2 68% achieved the expected standard in reading, 64% achieved the expected standard in writing, 73% achieved the expected standard in maths
Year 6 81% achieved the expected standard in reading (National Average 66%),86% achieved the expected standard in writing (National Average 74%),62% achieved the expected standard in maths (National Average 70%), 57% achieved the expected standard in reading, writing and maths combined (National Average 53%)
Well done to the children and staff for working so hard throughout the year.
I am delighted to announce that we have secured the necessary funding from the Local Authority to replace our rather tired kitchen. Work will commence in the last week of term and last for 8 weeks. We will be writing to parents and carers next week to update everyone on the adjustments to the menu service at the end of term to allow the contractors to start work before we break for the summer holidays.
We are delighted to announce that Niton Primary school has been awarded the Dyslexia Friendly Schools Award in 2016.
In Dyslexia Friendly Schools, staff recognise that dyslexic children learn in different ways and that this can be beneficial to all. Staff work quickly to address individual needs and tailor learning to children’s strengths. Staff continually monitor, review and improve methods of identification and support of children with specific learning needs. The whole school community is involved.
The school promotes good practice for teaching and learning.
