Intermediate Placement 

New York Primary has been involved in the SCITT programme for seven years, placing a wide range of enthusiastic students across school as well as appointing from the pool of talented individuals. The school prides itself on it’s commitment towards closing the gap through creative practice, ensuring that we are fully inclusive.  We have a purpose built Foundation Unit with access to an outdoor environment.  The school grounds provide an exciting learning space which includes a mini forest school on site.  This supports the school in its aim to offer a creative and motivational curriculum for all.
