Mrs Gooding


Welcome to our Learning Platform. I have been a member of the 'Newhey team' since 1993 and I feel immensely privileged to now be the Headteacher of such a thriving community school.

Living in Milnrow with my two girls, I love to wave to children passing by who once came to Newhey CP and have since spread their wings and gone to pastures new. May all those who come to our school have a happy, safe and enjoyable time and prosper in whatever they do in order to reach their full potential.
