Newfield School is committed to safeguarding and protecting all students in our care. We aim to create an environment where students feel valued, listened to and safe and where their self-esteem is promoted. Staff are alert to possible risks and clear procedures are in place for dealing with expressions of concern.
When they join Newfield, students will be placed in one of seven tutor groups that make up a year group. Tutors meet their groups daily. The tutor is responsible for the day-to-day care of your child and, therefore, is the first link between parents and school. Parents are encouraged to let the tutor know of any issues affecting the behaviour, progress or well-being of their children. Tutor groups for the current academic year can be found on the right hand side of this page in the downloads section.
Arrangements for the year group are overseen by the Head of Year who also provides advice and support for students and staff and act as a point of contact for parents.
Heads of Year will often invite parents into school to discuss issues about your child and, of course, you are welcome to visit the school at any time. The team are:
Head of Lower School (Years 7 and 8) - Mr K Wildes
Head of Upper School (Years 9, 10 and 11) - Miss N Illingsworth
Head of Year 7 - Mrs Barker
Head of Year 8 - Mrs Hill
Head of Year 9 - Mr Beaumont
Head of Year 10 - Mrs Otley & Mrs Thorpe
Head of Year 11 - Mrs Langley & Mrs Watkinson
