Every governors role is to govern the school in the best interests of all pupils; not to represent the interests or the constituency from which they are elected or appointed.
The Governors at Newton Burgoland Primary School are committed to providing all pupils with an "outstanding" education in a safe and happy environment. The Governing Body has a wealth of talent and is actively involved in all aspects of school life.
As a whole Governing Body we meet twice a term. The finance team and health and safety team meet outside these meetings and report to the full meetings. School improvement and curriculum matters are discussed at the main meetings.
The role of the governing body is to set targets, monitor progress, support and challenge.
Most recently the Governing Body has been focussed on:
- Developing wraparound care
- Premises improvement
- Improving computing facilities
- Supporting recovery following the pandemic
Newton Burgoland Primary School provides a fantastic environment for learning, that as Governors we are determined to develop further.
We are always looking for new skills, so if you are able to offer a particular expertise to the governing body, to support its work, then please contact the office to find out how you can get involved. If you are an existing parent/carer and have any comments please feel free to make contact with any of the Governors, details of the governing body can be found under the ‘meet the governing body’ tab.
If you are a prospective parent/carer and are looking for a school for your child, please make contact and allow us to demonstrate what we can offer you and your child!!
If you are a current parent use the link below to share how well we are doing with ofsted and prospective visitors.
Meet The pupil Leadership teams
Pupils at Newton Burgoland Primary school are committed to improving their school.
All pupils in year 5 and 6 serve their community as:
- Members of the schools council
- Committee members of the schools' council: chosen by election
- Sports ambassadors
- Diversity champions
- Internet safety champions
Schools Council Committee
The School Council is well-established and plays an important part in expressing the children’s views/wishes about their school.
All pupils in class 4 serve on the Schools Council because we believe that all pupils are entitled to a place on the schools' council. The Committee Members are chosen by vote.
Being a sports ambassador is the start of leadership pathway in sport which continues in key stage 3.
Our sports ambassadors organise our annual sports day. Plan and support intra- schools competitions and encourage heathy lifestyles.
Our diversity Champions play an importance role in helping us to prepare to live in multicultural Britain and global world community.
This year we are part of an ant-racism pilot working with the local authority and De Montfort University to build on our previous work with 'Everyone Welcome'.
In 2021/22 we achieved the silver anti-bullying award with UAB.
Internet safety Champions
The Internet is rich source of information but is must be used wisely. Our interest safety champions lead us in a termly assembly to promote safe Internet use.
Our planet's future matters to us all. Our Eco-champions are determined to make a difference.
