At Newfold we are fortunate to have a very supportive Governing Body which supports the school community to enrich the lives of all involved.

The Governing Body is responsible for the efficient running of the school and meets at least once per term.

The governors are parents, carers, teachers and non-teaching staff of the school, local authority representatives and people from the local community. Governors hold office for a term of four years. The governors have certain legal duties, powers and responsibilities :-

  • They help to decide what is taught in the school
  • They interview and select staff
  • They help to decide how the school budget is spent


The present governors of the school are:

Mrs L Bradshaw Co-opted Governor  
Mr M Winstanley LA Appointed Governor  
Mrs A McMillan Co-opted Governor  
Mrs L Correia Parent Representative  
Mrs S Brady Co-opted Governor  
Mrs J May Co-opted Governor  
Mrs E Baker Parent Representative
Mrs L Henthorn Teacher Governor

Governing Body Diversity Statement: 

The Governors of Newfold Community Primary School believe it is important that the Governing Body reflect our school community. We aim to promote inclusive school environments and provide diverse role models for our children. Diversity data is not published online at present as it may allow individual governors to be identified and we have a legal obligation to protect personal data.
