It gives me great pleasure to write to you as the new Headteacher of Morland Church of England Primary School and to welcome you to what I am sure will be a very busy and exciting year ahead.
I am joining Morland as its new Headteacher, having spent the last 14 years in Essex as headteacher, executive headteacher and working for the Chelmsford diocesan multi-academy trust. Throughout my career, I have been involved in education. I am now really looking forward to working at Morland with the aim of continuing to strengthen the school.
Since starting my post this week I have been tremendously impressed by the dedicated and hardworking staff. However, I have especially enjoyed meeting the children. It has been a privilege to spend some time with them in their classrooms, in worship and on the playground.
I have already met many of you outside before and after school. Thank you to everyone who has spoken to me already and made me feel so welcome. I will continue to be outside on the gate both before and after school and look forward to meeting you all in person.
