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 172 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.

Press Release from Isle of Wight Council on The All Through School – 21st February 2018
THE BAY ‘THROUGH-SCHOOL’ GIVEN GREEN LIGHT FROM GOVERNMENT
Sandown Bay Academy will close on 31 August 2018 following final Ministerial approval being received today (21 February 2018).This decision enables plans to extend The Bay CE Primary to become an all through school from 1 September 2018 catering for students aged 4-16.“I am absolutely delighted that, we have now received the final Ministerial approval so that we can create The Bay all-through school,” said Cabinet Member Paul Brading.“I am assured that everything will be in place by September, for a smooth transition to begin this exciting journey for the all through school to be a flagship; providing the best education for our young people. “We’ve worked closely with the Cornerstone Federation (the governing board of The Bay CE Primary School and Niton Primary School) and the Diocese in recent months to put in place firm building blocks that will ensure that young people have access to high quality education. A considerable amount of work has already taken place to shape the curriculum, staffing, and budget; and that will now be taken forward at pace.
Executive Head Teacher at The Bay CE Primary School, Duncan Mills commented, “This announcement gives my team the green light that we’ve been waiting for. We will now take forward our dialogue with the students, parents and staff at both schools. Our community deserves to have a school that we can all be proud of and my vision is to deliver the highest possible level of education for children from four through to age 16.”
Duncan and his senior team, supported by the Isle of Wight Council, will be starting a period of consultation shortly to share the latest information on how the transition to an all-through school will be implemented.
“Where there has been considerable uncertainty, there are bound to be legitimate concerns that need to be addressed. I am sure that together we can find all the right answers, but it’s vital that we enable a free flow of information. My team are committed to gaining the confidence and trust of all those affected so that we may succeed together.”
