Newtons Primary School Governing Body

The governing body is responsible for both the conduct of the school and for raising standards within it. the governing body carries out its role by setting the vision for the school and then ensuring that the school works efficiently and effectively towards achieving its vision. It does this by building a thorough knowledge of the school and its community, by both supporting and constructively challenging the school, and by ensuring accountability and compliance. The governing body of our school is made up of a Headteacher governor, parent governors, staff governors and co-opted governors.

Governors need not be experts in the field of education. What they do need is an interest in the school and in the welfare of our children.

Governors also need to be able to build relationships with a range of people, to be able to work as part of a team, to be able to question and to make connections between different types of information. All governors are expected to be able to read straightforward budget reports and data on school standards.

Our governors need to:

  • attend termly meetings of the full governing body
  • sit on the Leadership and Management or Learning and Achievement committee and attend the meetings which are usually held twice a term
  • visit the school formally for monitoring purposes at least once a year
  • visit the school informally at least once a year
  • commit to attend training courses, perform additional research as required and take part in monitoring areas withing the school

In return we will:

  • ensure you receive a structured induction
  • provide the support of an experienced governor as a mentor
  • give you lots of development opportunities within the school and through Havering Governor Services who provide extensive training in all areas of governance

If you would like to find out more about how you can make a difference at our school, please email with your details and we will arrange at time to contact you for an informal discussion.

Our Governors - Reconstituted July 15

Under new Government legislation all school Governing Bodies are to be reconstituted by September 2015. Under this new legislation, the Governing Body is slimmed down, but must have the appropriate skills to fulfil the role of a Governing Body effectively. It should not be smaller than 7 members and must include: At least 2 Parent Governors; The Headteacher; One and only one Staff Governor; One and only one Local Authority Governor. On top of the above 5 ‘Core Governors’, a school can appoint as many additional co-opted Governors as deemed necessary.
