Dear Parents and Carers,
The last time I wrote to you all I was able to give you the good news about the splendid outcome of the Ofsted Inspection.
Today I have more good news. After an intense and exhaustive interview process on Thursday I am pleased to tell you that Mrs Cheryl Steele, currently Acting Headteacher, was offered the permanent post of Headteacher, and on behalf of the governing board I am delighted that she has accepted. This is great news for the school and I am sure that you will all give her the tremendous support that you have provided during her period as acting Headteacher.
The very first duty of Mrs Steele as permanent Headteacher, ten minutes after being offered and accepting the position, was to receive the Right Honourable Damian Hinds MP, the new Secretary of State for Education. He spent almost two hours in the school, meeting staff, parents, governors, and most importantly, children. He toured the school and was very impressed with what he saw, listening, asking questions, and allowing us to ask questions of him.
Yesterday was indeed a significant day in the history of the school.
Dr Christopher Reynolds OBE KSG
Rosehill Governing Board
