"Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all"


Chair welcome


On behalf of Newbold Church School it is with great pleasure that I welcome you to our school’s website.

I am a past pupil and became a Parent Governor in 2005 when my daughter started the school. 13 years on and I still feel very privileged to serve the school and to contribute to its wonderful journey, most recently taking the positive step to join the Derby Diocesan Academy Trust.

The Governing Body is an elected group of volunteers including teachers, support staff, parents and members of the local community. We work together as a group, in a strategic role to oversee the direction and leadership of the school alongside the Headteacher and her Senior Leadership Team, who manage the school on a day to day basis. We support and challenge the staff to make sure that all the children are achieving and that everyone in school is safe.

Governors at Newbold Church School take an active role in the school not only attending meetings but also Parents evenings, PTA social events, undertaking classroom visits and helping out with school visits. During my visits to the school I see the wonderful work of the Teachers and the happy engaged faces of the children at work and play.

Newbold Church of England Primary School has a supportive environment giving our children the best possible start to their education. We celebrate the achievements of all pupils and staff and Nurture and Cherish, in order for them to succeed.
