Steve Chew

Local Chair - Newfield

Steve has been a Governor at Newfield since 2010 when he was appointed by the Local Authority. He has been the Chair Governors since 2016, and before retirement was Assistant Director of Children’s Services (Education) in a large metropolitan district. 

In his role as Chair of Governors, Steve and the rest of the body shares a common desire to improve the school and the outcomes for our students. He helps ensure the LGB maintains its strategic direction and that the school makes effective use of its allocated resources. Not least, he takes pride in looking at ways in which the LGB can become even more effective in carrying out its core business and help develop individual governors.

Steve says "I am a great believer in state education and in giving all our students an opportunity to make the most of their potential whatever their background. I believe absolutely in equality of opportunity."

In addition to being chair at Newfield, Steve chairs the LGB at a large inner city primary school as well as being a director of another City based multi academy trust. In his spare time he enjoys reading, walking, drinking coffee and watching both Liverpool FC and Sheffield Eagles RLFC (live when possible!).
