Thursday 7th September 2017
Welcome back to a new school year and I hope you have all enjoyed a wonderful summer break. The children certainly looked very smart and ready for learning when they excitedly arrived in school this morning.
I promised at the end of last term that I would share with you details of the successful applicant for our Headteacher role and I am pleased to let you know that Thomas Snowdon will be joining us on 1st January 2018.
I will share a further introduction to Mr Snowdon just before he joins us but he impressed us all at the interview (including the children) with his strong values, communication skills and portfolio of work he has achieved in the schools he has worked in, as well as his passion for delivering the best education for children.
Mr Snowdon is currently Deputy Head teacher at St Peter and St Paul Carbrooke Church of England Primary Academy having worked in senior roles within church schools across the county. We know he will have the drive and commitment to carry on delivering the excellent achievements that Mr Lord and the staff have worked hard to deliver over the years.
In the meantime I know you will all show your support to Mr Vokes in his role as Acting Headteacher until Mr Snowdon joins us in January.
As always if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch with me.
