Welcome to
New Pastures Primary School

New Pastures Primary School is a county primary, co-educational school across 2 sites that caters for children aged between 3 and 11 years. The school currently has 261 pupils in the main school and 23 pupils in the Nursery.

The lower site was originally built as a board school in 1876 and over the past few years has been subject to modernisation, renovation and extension to meet the needs of today’s learners.

The school is a bright, airy and stimulating environment filled with warmth left behind by the years of previous pupils who were educated in our school. There are 6 teaching areas, 5 which are used as dedicated classroom bases, the other is a shared activity and intervention space between the Foundation stage and Key stage 1. We also have a library and outdoor unit which are used for intervention groups.

The upper site was first opened in 1896. There are 5 class bases teaching areas on site, a school library, a breakfast club room, a computer area and an outdoor unit which is used for parent workshops, a reading shed and intervention groups.

At New Pastures Primary School our vision is for our children to be well educated through a rich and varied curriculum, becoming self-motivated, confident learners who have a desire to achieve more each day.
