Pupils are proud to be part of Newbridge Primary School. They are polite and friendly to staff and visitors. Pupils have positive attitudes towards their learning and work hard. Leaders have high expectations for all pupils to be the best they can be. Staff know the pupils well and ensure that they recognise their individual needs. Relationships between staff, pupils, and parents and carers are strong. Parents are very positive about the school and what it offers for the pupils and the wider community. Pupils benefit from the wide range of opportunities they are given. They particularly enjoy music, sport and outdoor learning. The school’s wider work supports pupils to become confident, resilient and responsible citizens; for example, pupils raise money for their chosen charities. Pupils know how to keep healthy, both physically and mentally. They have a clear understanding of tolerance and equality and believe that the school celebrates and champions their talents well. Pupils feel happy and safe in school. They know if they have concerns, there are adults they can talk to and trust to take appropriate actions.

This School Guide heat map has been plotted using official pupil data taken from the last School Census collected by the Department for Education. It is a visualisation of where pupils lived at the time of the annual School Census.

Our heat maps use groups of postcodes, not individual postcodes, and have naturally soft edges. All pupils are included in the mapping (i.e. children with siblings already at the school, high priority pupils and selective and/or religious admissions) but we may have removed statistical ‘outliers’ with more remote postcodes that do not reflect majority admissions.

For some schools, the heat map may be a useful indicator of the catchment area but our heat maps are not the same as catchment area maps. Catchment area maps, published by the school or local authority, are based on geographical admissions criteria and show actual cut-off distances and pre-defined catchment areas for a single admission year.

This information is provided as a guide only. The areas from which pupils are admitted to a school can change from year to year to reflect the number of siblings and pupils admitted under high priority admissions criteria.

3 steps to help parents gather catchment information for a school:

  1. Look at our school catchment area guide for more information on heat maps. They give a useful indicator of the general areas that admit pupils to the school. This visualisation is based on all attending pupils present at the time of the annual School Census.
  2. Use the link to the Local Authority Contact (above) to find catchment area information based on a single admission year. This is very important if you are considering applying to a school.
  3. On each school page, use the link to visit the school website and find information on individual school admissions criteria. Geographical criteria are only applied after pupils have been admitted on higher priority criteria such as Looked After Children, SEN, siblings, etc.

Newbridge Primary School Reviews

Average Rating:


“A wonderful environment in which to entrust your children”
"> Every member of the school community is committed to getting the best from the children. The pastoral support, SEN provision, breakfast club, after school wrap around care, wide variety of extra curricular clubs, music, PE and art provision and forest school all add flavour to the academic nurturing of each individual child. With a new head and a fabulous deputy head the school has led the way locally in its adoption of the new national mastery curriculum and the staff have worked incredibly hard to ensure that every child or every ability is catered for. They know which ones to support further and which ones require extra challenges and their school reports are detailed and incredibly helpful to me as a parent. We are really lucky to have an amazing team of parent volunteers (NPSA) who constantly fundraise and organise wonderful school community events for us all to enjoy. My children love going to school and I can not imagine a more wonderful environment for them to grow up in.
“Great school, imaginative learning”
"> We are very fortunate to have a choice of amazing schools on our doorstep. So whether or not we got our 'first choice' was never going to be an issue. As it happened Newbridge Primary School was our first choice, for a variety of reasons, and my daughter was accepted. Now in Year 1 we have been there for nearly 2 academic years and I have to say that we love it. My daughter comes home with a smile on her face every day, buzzing with what she has learned. I know that we are lucky in that she is a willing learner, and is eager to please, but walking into the school from day one we got a real sense of friendliness and community. All the staff are incredibly dedicated and approachable. Teaching staff work hard to make learning engaging. They have introduced the Newbridge 50, a set of 50 experiences that link with the curriculum that each child will take part in regardless of what Key Stage they are in. These are linked to WOW days where the children are involved in something over and above their normal school day whether it's dressing up to be explorers for the day or being involved in a 'festival'. Learning is fun and engaging. The support staff are also very hard working and friendly from the TA's to the SMSA's, the office staff to the Site Manager. The team who run the breakfast and after school clubs make the children very welcome and as the after school club is so popular they are looking to introduce a holiday club too! You get a real sense of dedication from all the staff at Newbridge. There is a great emphasis on learning through play in the early years (in particular) and the school has just introduced two play pods (one in the lower school and one in the upper school) which just makes playtime even more fun. On a serious note the play pods also allow the children to use their imaginations, problem solve and take risks. There are always lots of fun events for parents, children and families to take part in, of course, on most occasions this is linked to the need to raise money, but some events are just put on for everyone to enjoy. There have been ice skating and roller skating trips, quiz nights, BBQ's and a cycling event, on top of the usual Christmas, Summer fairs and cake sales. There will be an opportunity this year for families to 'camp out' on the school field on a weekend (not sure I'm quite ready for that one)! There are so many positives. Yes, I'm sure there are things that could be improved on, but no-one can ever say they have it 100% right. What counts is that everyone wants to do the best they can and this attitude rubs off on the children. It's a big school with a village school feel. It never feels overwhelming and for a city school they have amazing green spaces, but don't get me started on the conservation area where they hold regular Forest School for the pupils - it's like the cherry on top of the cake!
