I am delighted to be writing to you to introduce myself as the new Head Teacher at Nettlesworth Primary School.
As many of you know, I have been at Nettlesworth Primary for seventeen years. I came in 2000 as a student, then a newly qualified teacher and eventually progressed to Deputy Head Teacher. During my time at school, I have been lucky enough to work with two wonderful Head Teachers: Mr Peter Nelson and Mrs Lee Roberts. In the last four year as Deputy Head Teacher, I feel that I have had a fantastic apprenticeship to Head Teacher working extremely close with Mrs Roberts and working with her, staff and Governors to attain Ofsted judgement of Good with Outstanding in behaviour and welfare of the children.
I am passionate about the school and feel extremely proud and honoured to be its new Head Teacher. I look forward to working very closely with the governors, staff, parents and children to build upon the success that the school already has and to take the school forward in the next phase of history and development. I intend to ensure that Nettlesworth Primary continues with the same ethos, care and family values that it has built up for as long as I have worked here. The school and community are very important to me and I whole heartedly support the Nettlesworth values of inclusion, respect, pupil voice and continually striving to improve the children’s learning experiences.
It is my belief that every child should have the opportunity to be the best they can be-to enjoy their schooling and achieve as well as they can.
Nettlesworth Primary is a small, family orientated village school. We work in partnership with parents to develop a school where no one fails but rather, where every child leaves us having identified a talent, a skill, an intelligence through which they can become whatever they want to be.
As a parent myself, I really value the opinions and concerns of parents/carers. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries, concerns or if there is anything I can do to help and support you with your child’s learning and school life. I hope that together, we can continue to take the school forward and make Nettlesworth Primary the best it can be. Thank you for your continued commitment and support towards the school.
Mrs D Lee
