Newtownhamilton Primary School was last inspected by the ETI in November 2009. During the inspection, the visiting team of inspectors concluded that, 
'The children's behaviour is very good, they are well motivated and work well both individually and collaboratively on group activities.' 
'The teachers are very hard-working and committed to the education and care of the children, and are very well supported by the classroom assistants.' 
'The provision for special educational needs is very good.' 
'The quality of the arrangements for pastoral care is very good. This is evident through the excellent working relationships at all levels and the supportive and inclusive ethos developed in the school' 
in school and the local community

* Star of the week * 

At Newtownhamilton Primary School children receive awards throughout the week for achievements in learning and behaviour. Then every Friday, in assembly, a certificate is given to the child in each year group who has shown positive attitudes towards learning and behaviour or made outstanding progress in a particular area of school life that week. 
Every Friday hockey coach Christine Russell comes to school to put the children through their paces on the hockey pitch. At present she is working hard with Rec - P2. This week's star players were Joshua and Katrin. 
Well done everyone.
