Newbold Church School is committed to the highest standards in protecting and safeguarding the children entrusted to our care.

Our school will support all children by;

  • Promoting a caring, safe and positive environment within the school
  • Encouraging self -esteem and self-assertiveness
  • Effectively tackling bullying and harassment.

We recognise that some children may be the victims of neglect, physical, sexual or emotional abuse.  Staff working with children are well placed to identify such abuse.

At Newbold Church School in order to protect our children, we aim to:

  • Create an atmosphere where all our children can feel secure, valued and listened to
  • Recognise signs and symptoms of abuse
  • Respond quickly, appropriately and effectively to cases of suspected abuse.   



The designated lead for safeguarding at Newbold Church School is Mrs Kerry Marsh.

The Deputy Designated Lead for Safeguarding at Newbold Church School is Mrs Helen Burn.

Both members of staff can be contacted at school on 01246 232370, or by email via - FAO DSL

On the 15th and 16th of November 2022, we received an inspection visit from a team of OFSTED inspectors. We are delighted to share with you that we have been graded 'Good' across all categories. We are incredibly proud of all the hard work that has led to this rating. The full report is available to read below:




On the 30th March 2023, Newbold Church School welcomed an inspector into school to undertake the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS).   SIAMS inspection explores the question, “How effective is the school’s distinctive Christian vision, established and promoted by leadership at all levels, in enabling pupils and adults to flourish?”

A SIAMS inspection focusses on the impact of the Church school’s Christian vision on pupils and adults within the school community. The Inspector considered the school’s vision, its provision and how effective that provision is. The SIAMS inspection is not linked to an OFTSED inspection. The full report is available to read below:

100% of parents agree or strongly agree that their child is safe at NCS.

100% of parents would recommend our school to another parent.
