Newhall Primary Academy and Nursery has a Local Governing Body which was formed in March 2019. We are hoping to hold elections for an additional parent and two staff Governors during the Spring Term of 2020.
Governors at Newhall aim to ensure that our children experience a secure, safe and stimulating environment providing the full breadth of the National Curriculum – with emphasis on English, Mathematics, Science and Computing – where all are excited about learning and all learning activities encourage positive models of enquiry, reflection, innovation and challenge.
We nurture and support children of all abilities, helping each to achieve her/his potential in all aspects of learning and physical, social, emotional, moral and spiritual development. From this foundation we encourage staff to share success and equip children to become independent, creative thinkers and learners for life and to develop the resilience to face the challenges of an ever-changing world.
We recognise and value the diversity of our school family and the uniqueness of each of its members. We ensure excellence in teaching and learning through teamwork, support, collaboration and effective leadership.
We promote inclusion, creativity and enthusiasm. We promote British values – including tolerance, cooperation, trust and respect – within the school and the wider community.
We actively encourage community involvement wherever possible. We achieve the best we can for our children by using the strength of partnership working with parents and others.
Governors at Newhall keep our vision at the heart of all that we do, including setting the school’s policies and our School Development Plan.
Our Local Governing Body at Newhall consists of a team of individuals who collectively help to oversee the strategic direction and management of our school.
Governing a school means giving much time, energy and enthusiasm in supporting our school and helping to shape the stimulating environment it is today.
