Pupils en­joy life in the bush

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

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.
