Newtown Primary School offers a suite of Wellbeing programs to support our students with extra needs academically, socially or emotionally. These programs include Literacy support, Young Language groups, and a School Chaplain. We also have the support of a network Psychologist and Speech therapist. A special Mentor program called ‘Kidshope’ is also offered at our school.
As part of the Victorian Government’s commitment to implementing the recommendations of the Betrayal of Trust report, which found that more must be done to prevent and respond to child abuse in our community, there is a new regulatory landscape surrounding child safety, underpinned by the new PROTECT Child Safe Standards.
Newtown Primary School is an accredited provider of education for International Students. Accreditation is provided through the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students.
