I hope that you have had a good break over the summer. I wanted to update you about the headship arrangements and plans for recruiting a permanent new head teacher.
We are progressing with the recruitment of a new head teacher and the post has been advertised over the summer with a closure date for applications of 15 September. We hope to progress with interviews on 24 and 25 September with a view of having a successful candidate starting at school in January 2020.
From today, Alyson Mills and Nicola Allan have taken over as the joint interim head teacher of the school; Alyson will be with us on Monday and Fridays and Nicola Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. You may know or know of Alyson and Nicola -before taking up the role of Challenge Advisor with the EAS, Alyson was the head teacher of Lliswerry High School. Nicola is the head teacher of Maes Ebbw School, Newport’s 3-18 Special Education school. I am very grateful to them for stepping in to support us.
Thank you for your on-going support and commitment.
