The School Governors

The School Governors

The Governing Body is a team of people from all walks of life who have a common aim; to work together to provide the best possible education for the pupils at Newton Bluecoat CE Primary School.

Governors meet together at least twice each term to discuss new initiatives and school progress.  All of the Governors are members of committees that  meet at least once a term, dealing with the fine details of running the school. No governor claimed any expenses during academic year 2019/2020.

The Standards and Effectiveness commitee is concerned with pupil progress, and maintaining high standards in the school, particularly in the teaching and learning of maths and English. It is also concerned with safeguarding the pupils.

The Curriculum and Pastoral Care Committee is concerned with all school subjects except the finer details of maths and English and pupils’ personal development, behaviour & welfare. This committee meets in school during the day so the governors can see the school in action.

The Resources committee is concerned with finance, the premises and the personnel, policies. This committee also considers health and safety.

Governors are also required to attend training so that they are clear about their role and responsibilites in school. Individual governors have an interest in specific subjects or aspects of leadership and management of the school. The overiding reponsibility of governors is to set the strategic direction of the school and ensure that it is run well for the safety and benefit of all our pupils.

No staff employed at the school earned a gross salary of over £100K per year.
