Our Vision

Our vision is to create a federation of schools where children succeed and are proud of their achievements. We strive to actively promote British values and prepare our children to become role models, thus preparing them for life in modern Britain. To do this, we create a respectful, inclusive atmosphere that is welcoming, fun, friendly and safe. We are a federation that nurtures curiosity and creativity through an inspiring, challenging and engaging curriculum, where learning is at the heart of all that we do. Our children learn to become resilient and self-assured in an environment where success is celebrated. Our ethos is delivered through these aims for our children:

• To teach tolerance and respect to all children. All children are valued individuals and should be respected.

• To encourage everyone to have high expectations of themselves in an environment where they can reach their personal best.

• To promote equality of opportunity and aim to develop the children’s awareness of moral, cultural, social and spiritual issues.

• To have engaging and challenging opportunities through a creative and inclusive curriculum within the school and beyond into the local community.

• To encourage excellence by sharing successes and supporting the children to reach their full potential.

Through the aims of the Federation, we actively promote lifelong learning whilst ensuring the children respect one another, enjoy their school experiences and achieve their personal best.

Newtons Primary School Governing Body

Mrs H McClenaghan
Headteacher, Curriculum & Pupil Related Matters Committee, Leadership & Management Committee

I am privileged in my role as the Headteacher at Crowlands Primary School. I am passionate about making a difference and consider that we offer our pupils an excellent start to their education.  I have been in the role since 2013 having been promoted from Deputy Headteacher. I have over 20 years of teaching experience in Canning Town, Los Angeles, East Ham, South Carolina and Stratford before moving to Havering.

I have held various  leadership positions on my journey to becoming a Headteacher and have been really lucky to work in some outstanding schools. I am now in the fortunate position of leading ‘Team Crowlands’ and I am grateful to have the most fantastic team members. We strive to do the best in all that we can do!

Outside of school my boys Charlie and Zak keep me busy as I juggle all of their sporting, social and family commitments. I also enjoy taking part in Park runs and continue to love playing rugby for Romford Ravens!
