Newfield Primary  

Is situated on the west side of the village of Stonehouse.

The school was opened in 1979.  It was a single-storey, semi-open plan building, which has 10 primary classes and a nursery.

Its aim is to provide a stimulating educational environment which provides a broad, balanced curriculum to encourage the children to attain their full potential in a happy, caring atmosphere.  At present they have a roll of approximately 300 plus pupils which includes 40 nursery children.

The school was refurbished during 2010-2011 in a South Lanarkshire Council schools upgrade programme.

Lend Lease  successfully completed Newfield Primary School in Stonehouse. The new School was handed over defect free to South Lanarkshire Council on programme on 29th July 2011, allowing the school staff and pupils to return from their summer break and move in to their new school.

The project comprised the tandem build construction of a new single-storey 8 classroom primary school which is in line with other primary schools recently built or in construction within the framework  In addition to the classrooms, the building comprises a main stream nursery, a  gym hall, general purpose room, staff room library, IT Suite.  The new building is located adjacent to the existing school campus, sited on the location of the existing school playing field. The works were carried out in one phase to allow the existing school to operate whilst the new building is under construction.

The construction of the primary school is a steel frame structure with holorib decking topped with a concrete floor slab on pads/strip foundations. The building will have predominantly a facing brick outer leaf with areas of metal cladding and curtain walling on the elevations. The roof will be an aluminium standing seam roof throughout.

Internally, underfloor heating has been incorporated throughout the building with fit out specification aligning with other projects in the programme.
