A message from the new Headteacher

I knew I wanted to be headteacher of Newsome the minute I walked through the doors on the first day of interview.  It felt absolutely right, my whole philosophy is that every teacher has a school which is right for them, a spiritual home, this is mine.

When I joined the school its reputation was not the best and the bad behaviour of a minority was clouding the learning potential of the majority.  However, it was clear that the staff were very talented and wanted the school to move forward, parents and the local community wanted a school which they could be proud of and more importantly our students had massive potential to be amongst the best in Huddersfield. 

So one term in… was I right…..absolutely’s a fantastic place to be……so what has happened since

New systems which address behaviour in precise and consistent ways, which allow teachers to teach and students to learn have been implemented.  Clear routines, a culture of dignity and respect, choice and consequences are now key words which help keep students on track.

New monitoring systems, a secure and safe site with all external doors locked, which ensure a safe and secure
building whilst preventing students escaping from the school and causing problems in the local community.

People living nearby have already commented on the positive impact this has had around the area.  The on site police officer Jacqui Dews plays a big role in improving behaviour both in and out of school alongside the newly introduced TASC centre, (Time Alongside the School Community), which provides a structured approach to behaviour

Many changes internally.  Lockers removed, white lines on corridors, a new reception area, newly painted corridors all make for a better learning environment.  The latest development has been the full refurbishment of the schools dining facilities.  The arrival of all new
