A place to smile





Chair of Governors - Mike Brown



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 managing the school's finances. To do all this we work closely with the school staff, and sometimes we visit the children in classes to see what exciting work they are doing  – which is great fun!

Our Clerk to Governors is Karen McGerty. If you have any Governor queries please email:
