Message from the Chair of Governors


Dear Parent/Carer

The Governing Body are very proud of the academy, the staff and of course the children who attend Newbottle Primary.  As Governors we are dedicated to ensuring the academy delivers the best all round education for our children.  We are confident that the warm, friendly and exciting learning environment offered by the Head and staff will make your child’s time here a very happy and productive one.  I am sure you will find the staff and Governors accessible and available whenever there is a need.  We also welcome and encourage parents to become involved in the day to day running of our academy.


Finally, I would like to wish you and your child an enjoyable Newbottle experience.

Yours sincerely


Mrs P Dutton
