As you will all know by now, I have a new job to go to in September.
Applying for the position was not an easy decision to make. I am and always have been very happy at Sharmans Cross. However, there are times in life when opportunities offer themselves that are too tempting to ignore. Ulverley School offered me one of those rare opportunities that I could not ignore. A Children's Centre, Nursery, Infant Department and potential building projects, along with a strong ethos for teaching and learning were all too much for me to ignore. It also offered the opportunity of promotion.
It has been a real honour and a privilege to have been part of such a wonderful community and to have served it. I thank the governors for the faith that they showed me six years ago and you for allowing me to be part of the school's history. I have learned much and have many happy memories as a result.
I am extremely proud of the work that we have done together, our achievements in turning the school into a good school on the brink of excellence and the fantastic team of people that we have put in place to carry the school even further onwards. Given all of this, I am confident that we have laid strong foundations, building something bigger than any individual. It is this confidence in the team that made my decision to leave much simpler.
However, I do not leave until August and there is still work to be done. I will of course support the governors as much as I am able to in ensuring that the school can secure the services of a new Head Teacher that it deserves as well as continuing to strengthen the rigorous systems that we have in place to support and ensure that children become the very best that they can be.
My thanks to those who have expressed congratulations on my success and regret that I am leaving.
I hope that you all have a very happy Easter holidays and that you will return to school on Tuesday, 29th April ready for yet another hard working and successful term!
