Role of the Governing Body

The Governing Body exists for the benefit of the school and is responsible to the parents of every pupil. Our governors have a key role to play in helping Isaac Newton to provide the best possible education for all of its children. The governors work closely with the school to ensure that high standards of provision and attainment are maintained and improved.

 

The governors are very supportive. They give freely of their time to help improve the quality of education provided. Parents are represented on the governing body by democratically elected Parent Governors who are happy to hear your comments at any time. 

 

Governor Meetings

The Governors meet 4 time a year but are able to call meetings should there be important school business to discuss or exceptional circumstances.

  • Mr Andrew Pask

    Co-Opted Governor (Chair)

    As an RAF Aircraft Engineer of 20 years I have been happy to bring some of my military ethos and values to the board as a Community Governor, a position I’ve held since 2015. Once with two children at the school, I have been impressed with the progress they have made which is all thanks to the tireless work of the schools excellent staff. It has been a real privilege to see the improvement that the school has made in my time and I’m certain that with the right support we can improve further still.

  • Mrs Julia Nadarajah

    Co-Opted Governor

    I'm Julia Nadarajah and I am a co-opted governor with responsibility for safeguarding and curriculum.

    I worked in children's social care for many years and, since 2002 , in the Safeguarding and Review teams in Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire. My role was as an Independent Reviewing Officer and this entailed ensuring that children were kept safe and enabled to reach their full potential whilst in care. I will retire in November 2019 and this will help me to devote more time to my roles as a governor at both The Isaac Newton Primary School and Ancaster Church of England Primary School and also as the Safeguarding Officer for the East Loveden Group of churches.

    I am very pleased to have the opportunity to work with the wonderful children and staff at The Isaac Newton Primary School and I look forward to observing the progress of the children as they make their way through the school .

  • Mr Ashley Caress

    Co-Opted Governor (Vice-Chair)

    I work in education and currently hold the position of Deputy Headteacher. My role includes responsibilities such as teaching and learning, curriculum offer, absence management, health and safety and working in close partnership with external professionals to ensure the very best provision for all pupils. I am also a Specialist Leader of Education. As part of my role as a governor, I currently have responsibility for Health and Safety and SEND. Additionally, I was involved in the interview process for both the Headteacher and Deputy Headteacher positions. Also, I carried out a SATs inspection to ensure the procedure was adhered to accordingly. I am thoroughly enjoying being a member of the governing body and I am committed to working collaboratively with the team for the benefit of all pupils and the school community.

  • Mrs Gill Anderson

    Co-Opted Governor

  • Mrs Stacey Clark

    Parent Governor

    As a former pupil myself and my own 3 children attending Isaac Newton school I have a lot of interest in the school. I am a Ofsted registered childminder and have been for the last 15 years. I look forward to working with the school.

  • Mr Chris Heathcote

    Headteacher

    I’ve been teaching since 2012 and have had the pleasure of working in some fantastic schools including: Barrowby, Long Bennington and Claypole, where I held the role of Deputy Headteacher. I am very familiar with Grantham, having grown up in a small village nearby, and it’s a real privilege to be able to give something back to the community through my work in schools and now as Headteacher of Isaac Newton Primary School.

    I went into teaching because I wanted to make a difference and have always held the belief that every child has the right to a fantastic education, enriched with memorable and inspiring lessons and experiences. It’s through this that children can develop a real love of learning and can achieve more than they ever could have imagined!

    I feel truly privileged to have been given the opportunity to continue to shape Isaac Newton Primary School and I look forward to helping every child unlock their full potential and grow into unique, independent and creative thinkers.
