Mrs Alison Richardson, Headteacher

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Christ Church, a small and caring school community with BIG aspirations!

As a school family, we are hugely proud of our school and hope that our website gives you a ‘flavour’ of our journey as we seek to continually improve and provide the very best educational provision for our children.

Christ Church is a Voluntary Aided Church of England school that is extremely proud of its Christian foundations. Our school motto is “Learning & Growing together in FAITH, HOPE & LOVE”, and are proud to be an inclusive school where families of all faiths and backgrounds are welcomed.

Within our school community, everyone is valued. Our positive, dedicated staff and governors work with our parents, the local church and wider community to dream BIG dreams for our children!

This is an exciting time for everyone involved with the school as we embrace our future at Middlebeck, built on our Christian roots and rich history in Newark.


Message from the Chairs of our Governing Body

On behalf of the Governing Body, welcome to Christ Church CoE Primary School!

We are very proud to have the opportunity to share this part of the school’s journey with the community as it grows into it’s beautiful new building with an extended designation from the infant school it was, to the primary with nursery that it has become.

The governors here are all highly experienced individuals appointed from a variety of backgrounds. They are united in their commitment to work together in fulfilling their three main responsibilities: providing strategic direction; holding the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils; and overseeing the financial performance of the school in ensuring its money is well spent. Additionally, as a Voluntary Aided Church of England school, governors have responsibility for the appointment of staff and for upholding the distinctive Christian ethos.

The Governing Body of Christ Church CoE Primary School – alongside its staff, pupils, parents and community – is passionately committed to promoting its future success. We are united in our belief that our children and young people deserve the very best in education. As governors we will strive hard in guiding the work of this provision, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to succeed, learning and growing together in faith, hope and love.

Kind regards

Tony Roberts & Niki Monks (Co-Chairs of the Governing Body)
