I write to inform you of my resignation as from 31st August 2015.
Having worked as a teacher at Moor Nook since September 1985 and as Headteacher for eleven years this has not been an easy decision. However, the school is in a very strong position. Standards are high, behaviour is excellent, we are over-subscribed and staff and parents are very eager for the pupils to excel.
It is time for me to face new challenges. The National College for Teaching and Leadership has asked me to be a Pupil Premium Reviewer which will involve supporting schools in giving all children the best start in life. I also want to spend more time with family and friends.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Moor Nook and know that a new head will build on our remarkable achievements and move the school onto its next stage.
Thank you for your support over the years. Moor Nook school, the children and community will always hold a special place in my heart. I remain Headteacher until 31st August and we will inform you of the new head as soon as an appointment has been made. As ever, please pop in for a chat if you are unsure of any of the details.
