In September I will begin my eighth year as Headteacher of Wolverley Sebright. Over the past seven years we have become the top performing school in the county and are in the top 1% nationally for progress in reading by the end of Year 6.
The strength and stability in the team of hard-working and dedicated staff have ensured our pupils receive the best start at this school. We currently have waiting lists for each year group and our school is the first choice for many parents across the county.
As we have grown, so has our capacity to support other schools and pupils. In the past five years, I have supported a range of schools which has in turn provided us with opportunities to explore exciting developments in education. The sharing of best practice has meant, we continue to develop and we have not become complacent.
Instead of continuing to support several different schools, I am delighted to share with you that I have been asked to become the Executive Headteacher of Far Forest Lea Memorial CofE Primary School from September. I will continue to be the Headteacher of Wolverley Sebright and lead both schools with strong and experienced teams in both settings.
The landscape in education is constantly evolving and it is credit to the forward-thinking governors of both schools that this opportunity is possible in retaining my leadership at this school, whilst also extending my role in the trust and county. This is an exciting time and I feel very proud that this opportunity has been presented to us.
My vision, passion and commitment to the pupils and families of Wolverley Sebright remains the same. It is a privilege to work in a truly wonderful school and I look forward to another successful school year ahead.
