We know that one of the challenges for everyone is distinguishing the coronavirus from other common illnesses, particularly among children. Please find a useful guide to help you in our COVID 19 Full Reopening Information Hub, via the Parents section. Our risk assessment and all important information regarding COVID 19 is here • We have limited spaces in Year R and other year groups so please get in touch if you would like your child/children to start school at Newtown C of E Primary •


Welcome to our Governors’ section.

Please find below details of how our Governing body is structured, including the names, categories, responsibilities and terms of appointment for each Governor.


Newtown has a dedicated team of Governors who are either elected as Parent Governors, Community Governors, Local Authority Governors or staff Governors. They remain on the Governing Body for a period of four years and may be re-elected if no other candidates come forward. The Chair and Vice-Chair are elected annually. Vacancies for Governors are communicated through the School to the Parent Body and Hampshire County Council (HCC) Governor Services Team. All Governors are members of the Full Governing Body (FGB) and have full voting rights. They meet collectively once per month. Each Governor has a clear role in supporting and holding the school to account. These areas are reviewed annually. Each Governor reviews aspects of school improvement each term to monitor progress towards identified goals. This ensures that Newtown’s Governors ‘know their school’ and are able to challenge the school to achieve the very best outcomes for children.


They have no pecuniary interests to declare, but these are reviewed on a monthly basis.
