Dear Parents and Carers
I am writing to you to update you on the management structure we have put in place for Telscombe for the next academic year from September 2017.
I am happy to advise you that Jan Abrams, Head teacher of Peacehaven Heights Primary School will become Executive Head teacher of both schools from September for a period of 1 year. Mrs Abrams is not only an experienced Head teacher but has also previously held an Executive Head role, she will be based in Telscombe 3 days per week and will take the strategic lead for the school. Mrs Abrams already has a close working relationship with our us, being part of our local cluster of schools and is very excited by the opportunities that this partnership will offer for staff, parents and of course our children over the next year.
We will also be welcoming Catherine Allison to our team as Head of School, Mrs Allison, an experienced head teacher will be responsible for the day to day management of the school and will work full time 5 days per week. Mrs Abrams and Mrs Allison will be supported by other staff and I will update further on this in term 6. I would also like to advise you that our SENCO, Maree Rhodes will be working at East Sussex County Council within the ISEND department for term 6.
The Governing Body will now start to look at options for the permanent, long term future management and will keep you updated as appropriate. In the meantime I hope that you all enjoy precious family time in the forthcoming week and on behalf of the Governing body thank you all for your continued support.
Chair of Governors
