Pupils enjoy life in the bush
AM very pleased to have joined Jordans School this erm and am excited by the opportunities that being
headteacher of a small school presents. I am ooking forward to developing a good relationship ith everyone associated with the school and the urrounding community.
I have been a teacher and now a headteacher for ver 20 years and have worked in several places ncluding the East End of London, Slough, High Wycombe and most recently in South Bucks.
The best things about my job are that every day is different; I am never bored and the children make life very interesting. There is nothing better than seeing a child fill up with pride at their achievement especially if it is something which they have had to persevere with to be successful.
I have already met many of the parents here at Jordans including our Reception parents who were able to stay for a coffee at the Village Hall on the first day of term. It was great to have a chance to learn about the families, many of whom have had children pass through the school already.
Since then it has been a whirlwind of meetings, networking with other local schools and community leaders and getting to know the children as I am fortunate to be able to teach regularly in each of the classes. Children and staff have lots of ideas for projects already. Life is certainly never dull!
There are two Open Mornings planned on October 22 and November 11 and I look forward to showing prospective parents around the school on those dates.
