Appointment of New Headteacher
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Sally Taggart as our new Head Teacher from September 2014.
Mrs Taggart has had 8 years' experience as Head Teacher of Willowbrook Primary School in Hutton and we believe that she is the person to lead St. Mary's School into the future.
After looking carefully at her excellent application, strong track record, outstanding references and assessing her performance over 2 days through assembly, teaching, class observation, student council meeting, interacting with staff and pupils, written exercises relating to school performance data and financial statements, presentation and interview the panel was convinced that she was the right person for the children of St. Mary's School. The panel was supported by the Diocesan Schools' Adviser and our School Improvement Partner, also representing the Local Authority, who both enthusiastically endorsed this recommendation.
After proper and thorough discussion last night, the Full Governing Body approved the appointment of Mrs Taggart as the substantive Head Teacher for the school.
We are very excited at the start of this new phase for our school. We know that Miss Miller, as Interim Head Teacher, and Mrs Taggart as Full-time Head Teacher will start working and planning together over the Summer Term. We are confident that they will build on the strengths we have and grasp the challenges that any school faces. We look forward to working with them to continue to improve Shenfield, St. Mary's School for the benefit of all our pupils.
On behalf of the Governing Body
