My name is Tim Furphy and it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Newham Primary School. I am proud to be the Principal of NPS, leading a team of dedicated staff and working alongside a tight knit community is something really special to me.


Being a small school, our team take collective responsibility for, and take pride in the successes of students at our school. With each students wellbeing and individual learning needs at the forefront of all we do, staff focus on developing independence, confidence and initiative.


Together with staff, parents and students we make our students' schooling positive, successful and stimulating. We emphasise a dynamic learning environment, underpinned by our core school values: Excellence, Unity, Resilience, Responsibility and Respect.


I take my role, and our schools role in the wider education system seriously, and love every part of every childs educational journey.
