Headteacher Letter

November 2023


Dear Parents and Carers,


I trust this letter finds you, your friends and family in good health.

Mr Danny Ralph, who has been our Deputy Headteacher since 2017 will be leaving at Christmas.

Danny has supported the school extremely well in the last six years. He has contributed significantly to the school’s improvement. I wish to thank him for all his service to our community. I am delighted for him that he has secured a promotion and will be working at Broomhill Bank School, next year. Your children have been told today that Mr Ralph will be leaving on 15th of December 2023.


On a separate note, I would like to thank all the families and carers who attended our Coffee Morning last week. I felt we had a comprehensive debate regarding pupil use of their phones. I was pleased that all who attended could acknowledge the complexity of this topic and appreciated the need for change. Thank you to the parents who emailed their thoughts which I shared. I am continuing my discussions with staff groups. I will write again separately when decisions have been made, regarding our routines and expectations of pupil phone use.


Many thanks for your support.


Best Wishes


Les Milton
