h2.Mrs Karen Bye appointed new Executive Head
The Governing Body has been working with the Local Authority and Diocese to secure the future Leadership of St Leonards Church of England Primary school. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Richard White for his successful and supportive role in moving the school forward.
I am pleased to confirm that Mrs Karen Bye, Senior Advisory Headteacher for the Local Authority will be continuing in the role of Executive Headteacher for the remainder of the year. Mrs Bye is an experienced Consultant Headteacher who will work in the school for half the week and continue the improvements that have already been started.
Mrs Bye will be meeting with Mr White, the Senior Leadership team and Governing body to ensure a smooth transition. The School has made positive steps in improvement as reflected in the recent HMI inspection and I have every confidence that Mrs Bye, Miss Burgess and Mrs Bray will lead the school out of Special measures.
Please do not hesitate to contact me via the school should you have further queries. Date for the next parent forum wil be communicated shortly and we would welcome contributions to our school community.
Ms Tracy Browning
Chair of Governors
