Dear Parents and Carers

I am delighted to be able to write my first letter as the new Headteacher of Northfield School. I am grateful for the warm welcome I have received so far from all the staff and pupils, and I feel privileged to be joining the school community.

My priority as Headteacher of Northfield is to ensure that we build on the school’s very successful Ofsted inspection in 2015, by moving the school from good to outstanding.

We are a values based school at the heart of the community, which recognises that all pupils are individuals with the talent and potential to lead successful and fulfilling lives. This is reflected through our rich curriculum offer, which supports all our pupils in discovering their talents whether it be through academia, industry, sports or the arts.

At Northfield we have high aspirations for every pupil as we work hard and continually strive for excellence. Staff have high expectations of all pupils and emphasise the importance of learning which is fostered through a supportive, caring and safe environment.

We work with a range of agencies including colleges and local businesses. We value these highly as they have an incredible impact on the development and achievement of our pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and practical skills needed to be ready for further education and successful employment.

It is this diversity of learning and experiences that we believe develops our pupils into well rounded young people and making them responsible citizens of the future.

At Northfield we recognise that working in partnerships are vital in order for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience. With that in mind, we work closely with our supportive parents and Governors to improve the quality of education and service that we deliver.

I look forward to meeting with you all over the coming weeks and months.
