Dear Parents and Families,
I am writing to explain a key development at Newlands starting this term.
From November 2018, our current Deputy Head Teacher Mr D Bailey will be stepping into the role of Head of School.
I remain committed to Newlands and will continue to take an active leadership role. I will be focusing my work more towards that of an Executive Head Teacher, in collaboration with Dame Janet and will be supporting Mr Bailey in his role, which I very much look forward to.
Mr Bailey will now be responsible for the operational running of the school, with a clear focus on achieving the best outcomes and opportunities for the children. With his commitment to the school and its children, I am sure this will be a successful and progressive step towards Newlands achieving its ambitions.
If you have any questions or queries for myself or Mr Bailey we are available to answer and explain any changes.
Mr S Atkinson
Executive Head Teacher
