The governing board of Newfield School play a crucial role in the life and work of our school. Governors make decisions about many aspects of the school including the curriculum, staffing and finance. The governing board consists of members of staff and parents, as well as representatives from Sefton Education Authority and the local community.
Whilst Mr Whelan, Newfield School’s headteacher, is responsible for the day-to-day management and control of the school, the Governing body of Newfield School:
Our Full Governing Body meets at least 3 times a year on a Monday evening. We have also set up a number of committees which have specific areas of work delegated to them.
Newfield School committee structure:
Governors at Newfield School are expected to play a full and active role, attending at least one committee and in addition some Governors also volunteer to fulfil specific roles, such as being the Special Educational Needs Governor, or the Safeguarding Governor, or the link Governor for a particular year or subject.
Governors at Newfield School are welcome to visit the school during the working day so that they can see how the school is addressing issues that have been identified for development.
Governors are also warmly welcomed to all school events such as Christmas productions, sports day and Easter celebrations.
