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.
Careful consideration and thought is given to match the needs of the students with the program that would best support them in their learning and development.
Offers to participate in these programs are only made as required and as places become available.
Child Safety Standards
Newtown Primary School is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people.
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.
All who are connected with our school are expected to comply with our Code of Conduct.
We are a Better Buddies School
The Alannah & Madeline Foundation's Better Buddies Framework is an initiative designed to create friendly and caring primary school communities where bullying is reduced.
Not Hat, No Play, No Fun Today
Newtown Primary School is a SunSmart School. Please remember to wear your hat from September to April.
