Headteacher Appointment

Dear Parents/Carers

I am pleased to be able to provide you all with a final update on the headteacher position.

The school governing body met last Thursday night and decided unanimously to appoint Sarah Bishop to the role on a permanent basis.

We considered a number of important factors in making our decision. These included Mrs Bishop’s performance since taking on the role temporarily, the views of staff and her performance during a recent day of activites designed to measure performance against the National Standards for headteachers. Mrs Bishop has a clear vision for the school and the governors are confident that she is the right person to take the school forward.

We are aware that this has been a period of uncertainty for all involved with Parkland, but we hope you will agree that we took the right decision in not appointing anyone earlier when we felt that none of the candidates who applied were suitable for Parkland.

I am sure that you will join us in congratulating Mrs Bishop on her appointment and offer her your full support as she leads the school forward.

Catch it, Bin it, Kill it

Our attendance target for the whole school this academic year is 97%. Sadly we are some way off achieving this.  Many children have been affected by Chicken Pox and illness such as sickness and diarrhoea recently. In order to prevent the spread of these types of illness and improve overall attendance we will be focusing on general hygiene.

Each classroom will be equipped with hand sanitizer and children will be asked to use it at regular intervals throughout the school day. The School Nurse will be coming in to school to speak to the child during assembly to explain how to prevent the spread of germs.

We would appreciate it if parents could work with us and continue with this message at home.
