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


Chair welcome

Dear Parents and Carers,


On behalf of the Governing Board, I extend a warm welcome to Newbold Church of England Primary School. In knowing that God is always with us in everything we do, our belief is that everyone can go on to fulfil our Christian vision for all here at Newbold: 


Nurture, Cherish, Succeed



Encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing

1 Thessalonians 5:11

A family working and growing together to reach our potential, our Christian faith values are at the heart of all we do each day as a school community. We offer an inclusive learning environment where everyone can experience challenge, enjoyment and respect.  



Jesus said "Love one another.  Just as I have loved you, you should also love one another.”

John 13:34

Within a pervading Christian ethos of compassion and love, we promote a culture of excellence, equality and high expectations for all our children, which embodies spiritual growth and lifelong learning in our caring, Church of England setting.



Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up

Galatians 6:9


We offer a broad and balanced curriculum where our children take enjoyment from learning and every child is encouraged to try their hardest and achieve their best. The excellent staff are experienced and dedicated and work in partnership with parents, children and the wider community to ensure that the children at Newbold receive the best possible experience.


As Governors we work closely with the headteacher. Our main responsibility is to determine the aims and overall conduct of the school with a view to promoting high standards of educational achievement. We provide challenge and support, ensuring that a broad and balanced curriculum is delivered, as well as ensuring that the school’s finances are used to maximise outcomes for pupils. We also monitor health and safety and the management of the premises. However, without a doubt, we consider that our most important role is to monitor the welfare and education of our pupils.


We work closely with DDAT, and collaborate with many partner schools within the Trust. We are justifiably very proud of the children in our school.


I have no doubt that the hopes and aspirations you have for your child will be fulfilled here at Newbold Church School.
