Two new ap­point­ments at Den­ham Green E-Act Academy

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

TWO new mem­bers of staff have started work at a pri­mary school.

The Den­ham Green E-Act Pri­mary Academy in Nightin­gale Way has wel­comed new deputy head Ce­sare No­cera and new ex­ec­u­tive prin­ci­pal Matthew Flan­ni­gan.

Mr No­cera pre­vi­ously worked at the Lit­tle Spring Pri­mary School in Che­sham, a school which has worked closely with the academy in re­cent years.

Mr Flan­ni­gan has ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with other E-Act acad­e­mies, and will be us­ing Den­ham Green as an ex­am­ple of best prac­tice to other acad­e­mies in the coun­try.

The ap­point­ments follow a year in which three quarters of the academy’s pupils achieved the gov­ern­ment tar­get of level four in English and maths, a 53 per cent im­prove­ment on last year.

Prin­ci­pal Sarah English said: “We are de­lighted to wel­come Mr No­cera and Mr Flan­ni­gan. Their wealth of ex­pe­ri­ence is felt not only by staff and stu­dents, but by par­ents and the wider com­mu­nity.

“It has been a trans­for­ma­tive 18 months for the academy.

“The re­sults we re­ceived were ex­cel­lent and that’s been re­flected in the ris­ing in­take of pupils this year which goes against the re­gional trend. Th­ese ap­point­ments, along with a num­ber of other ap­point­ments we have made in re­cent months, are proof of our com­mit­ment to se­cur­ing a pos­i­tive fu­ture for the academy.”
