Newman School remains open to all of our pupils who want a place. If your child is not currently attending, please notify school and transport prior to sending your child.
Parent Governor Election
I would like to take this opportunity to inform you that Newman School has a vacancy on the governing body for a parent representative.
If you are interested in standing for election for this position you are invited to submit your nomination on the form attached below, which should be returned to the Clerk to the Governing Board by 3.30 p.m. on Friday 18th June 2021. If there are sufficient nominations to warrant an election this will be held between 28th June 2ndh and 2nd July 2021, and I will write to you with further details if this is necessary.
Please note that your nomination must be supported by another parent of a student on roll at the School. This must not be a member of your family. If an election is necessary, each parent nominated will be requested to write a brief personal statement about himself or herself, which will be circulated to all parents to help them to decide who to vote for. The School will organise this if and when necessary.
If any parent is interested in becoming a parent governor but is unsure what this will involve, please contact Headteacher for further information.
Please note that Newman School are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children therefore all persons appointed or elected to a governing body are required to undergo a DBS check. If you are successful in being elected as a parent governor you will be required to undertake such a check.

Mental Health Awareness Week
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week.
The Mental Health Foundation are encouraging us to explore and use Nature to support our mental health.
Connecting with nature is not just about the amount of time we spend outdoors; it is also about building a relationship with nature by noticing and becoming sensitive to what is around us.
We use our senses to do this– such as noticing the different cloud shapes in the sky, smelling the scents of flowers and listening to the birds chirping in the trees.
Research tells us that there are many mental health benefits to connecting with nature, such as:
- Feeling happier
- Feeling less stressed or angry
- Having more and better quality sleep
- Feeling less worried
- Being more environmentally aware and engaged
- Increasing self-esteem and self-confidence
- Improving attention and concentration
- Encouraging participation in physical activities
- Increasing social contact with other people and animals.
The guide attached will provide some ideas to help you connect with nature, based on what you have available to you.
