Head of School (Primary)

I am delighted to be able to introduce myself as the Head of School at The Bay CE Primary. Within my role, I am very privileged to lead our extremely committed staff team in ensuring that a high standard of teaching and learning is delivered to every child in our care. Our collective aim is to ensure that all children leave our school with the necessary skills to succeed in their next stage of education. By continuously monitoring, evaluating and refining our teaching and learning, we are able to provide an engaging and enriched curriculum that provides all of our pupils with a wealth of different educational opportunities. Through our website, we are able to share news of the exciting school events and activities that take place.

Our Christian values of love, courage, truth, respect and friendship underpin all that we do at The Bay. I am proud to say that all of our staff are passionate about supporting and enabling all pupils to fulfil their full potential, and achieve all that they aspire to, in a safe and nurturing environment.

As a school, we very much recognise the importance of a strong home/school partnership. At The Bay we value the role of parents in developing and supporting children’s learning and we are always looking to further develop this excellent partnership.

Please feel free to contact me directly with any queries, suggestions or feedback that you may have.
