The Governing Body of Newham Bridge Primary School is made up of 6 volunteers from the local and wider community, plus the Headteacher and a Member of Staff. Working alongside the school, we offer support and challenge in order to provide the best education possible for our pupils.

|I joined as a parent governor in 2008 and my Governor role is linked to the Finance & Resources Committee and school website/communications. I endeavour to support Newham Bridge from a parents’ perspective to help ensure all our children receive the best possible learning experiences and outcomes from their education. I am mum to two children who have been a part of school life at Newham Bridge since 2006; my youngest is in key stage 2 and my eldest has moved on from Newham Bridge to secondary school.|
|I am a parent governor and the chair of governors at Newham Bridge Primary School. Besides 4 children and family life, I work as a mechanical engineer in the local chemical industry and I am also actively involved in Middlesbrough Community Church. I work as a governor to help put something back into our community and try to bring some of the experience I have gained through working in industry into the world of education so that the pupils, teachers and parents can make the most of their time with the school. Although I am not able to be in school much during the day, I am normally able to visit the school regularly and I am easily seen in my day-glow cycling top on my bicycle.|
|I joined as a parent governor over ten years ago and became a community governor after my son moved to secondary school. I am joint vice chair and chair of the Finance and Resources Committee. The governing body has recently undergone changes in roles which I hope will improve their effectiveness and also assist the school in helping every child to reach their potential.|
|I joined the Governing Body in 2016, in order to play a small role in the push to make sure all children in Middlesbrough have access to a great education. Newham Bridge is a brilliant, friendly, school which inspires young people and I am very proud to be a part of the Governing Body. I work for the Mayor of Middlesbrough, Dave Budd, as his assistant. I am (unsurprisingly) interested in politics, but also like cooking and listening to jazz.|
