NewtonPrimary School

A place to smile



Rachael Hornby

Chair of Governors



What do Governors do?

The Governing Body is a team of people who want to help the school to be the best school it can be. We have Governors who are parents of children at Newton Primary School, as well as Governors from around our community, because we know how important schools are in making our world a better place to be part of.


Our jobs include: helping to choose the school’s teachers, making sure lessons are interesting and fun, checking the school is safe and making sure the school does not run out of money. To do all this we work closely with the school staff, and sometimes get to come in to see what the pupils are up to – which is great fun!

Our Clerk to Governors is Claire Thornhill. If you have any Governor queries please email:
