School Motto




I am Jane Thistlethwaite and as the headteacher of the school I am an ex-officio governor. An ex officio member is a member of a body (notably a board, committee, council) who is part of it by virtue of holding another office. The term ex officio is Latin, meaning literally 'from the office', and the sense intended is 'by right of office'; its use dates back to the Roman Republic.


I have been the headteacher of Newchurch St. Nicholas since September 2015.  I am currently also working as an Associate Adviser 1 day a week in the East of the County. I am privileged to lead this school of amazing individuals and love spending time in classrooms with the staff and children seeing them learn. They are a delight to be around and never fail to lift my spirits and suprise me. 


When  not at school (honestly I don't live here) I enjoy spending time with my family. I like to garden - but wouldn't call myself a gardener as I seem to grow things through chance! I also LOVE reading and will read anything - I might not complete everything but will give all books a fair chance.  



My name is  Julie Meeks and I am the staff governor. I work at Newchurch St Nicholas as the school Bursar and I have worked here since 2003. I started out by working as a welfare assistant when my son was in Reception class and I have progressed my career through the development opportunities I have been given. In 2013 I gained a CSBM level 4 qualification in School Business Management and I am currently in my 3rd year of a Business Management degree apprenticeship. In my spare time I enjoy running and spending time with my family.
