Dear Parents and Carers,
I am delighted to be starting the new academic year as the Headteacher of Wrotham Road Primary School and I look forward to working with staff, parents, and pupils over the coming months. I am grateful for the fantastic support which I have received from the staff and governors over the last few years and they have all facilitated a smooth transition into my new role of Headteacher.
My work in the first term will be focused on working in close partnership with parents, governors and staff to secure the best educational outcomes for our pupils and to foster the type of caring learning environment which allows all pupils to achieve the success that we are serious about. It is already clear to me that we have a talented and confident group of young people and, together with our excellent staff, we will work hard to maintain and build upon the success that this school is known for.
We will continue to place a high value on allowing pupils to develop skills and expertise in important areas outside of the main curriculum. We have a strong record of sporting success and already we have many planned activities to develop sporting opportunities. A newsletter will be on its way soon! Students enjoy being given the freedom to develop skills and expertise in areas which excite and inspire them, and we have staff with the skills and passion to promote this culture.
Other key areas of focus over the coming year will be for the pupils to have a high level of attendance and punctuality; to wear the correct uniform smartly and with pride, give their best effort in all lessons; behave with respect at all times and believe in their ability to be successful. I will also be writing the School Improvement Plan which will clearly set out the vision and focus for the school over the coming year. I will share this with you, once I have consulted with the staff and governors.
I am determined that every pupil at Wrotham Road will be able to reflect upon their time here as a happy and fulfilling period which provided the foundations needed for their long term future successes.
I look forward to working with you all.
