Newton Pop kids told to stay out of classrooms
‘No entry’ before 9am rule introduced will boost teachers
CHILDREN at Newton Poppleford Primary School have been told to stay out of classrooms before 9am.
From this term, pupils in Years Two to Six will be allowed to hang up coats in the cloakroom and put bags and lunch boxes away – but then must go straight into the playground and “not disturb” teachers.

Headteacher Stuart Vaughan said the move came following talks among staff.
