New Town Primary School Nurturing Brilliance, Inspiring Ambition

Information about school closure and re-opening

Official guidance from the government states that attendance is statutory (a legal requirement).  Unfortunately this means that absences without a valid reason, as agreed with the Headteacher, will be unauthorised and Reading Borough Council could issue a fine for non-attendance.

When school is open to all pupils, with the government expecting them to attend, we are not able to offer an alternative online teaching platform so children can stay at home. 

If your child or household are self-isolating then please click here for work that can be completed at home, should your child be well enough.
