Executive Head's Welcome
I am very happy to be supporting St Patrick's this year, working alongside Mrs Sherratt as Head of School to achieve the best we can for the children, staff and community of St Patrick's Catholic Primary.
For the past ten years I have been a serving headteacher for the parish and school of Corpus Christi. I do feel that I know St Patrick's school well having been here for some time in 2012/13.
What a delightful school full of great children!
In August 2015 we became part of the Romero Catholic Academy which is both exciting and supportive as eight schools work together for the good of our young people. It is through the academy that we are able to work in this innovative way, helping to develop excellent school leadership.
I love my job and I am passionate about Catholic education. I firmly believe that children can, in the words of Oscar Romero, 'aspire to be more rather than have more' by living and learning our Gospel Values. Under the direct leadership of Mrs Sherratt I am confident that your children will have a wonderful, rich experience.
Developing the Whole person is what I care about so that each child can reach their God given potential. Through the educational guidance, nurture and care of this dedicated team of staff and governors I believe your children will continue to thrive and grow; personally, educationally and spiritually.
Leading a school is both a privilege and a challenge. My hope is that St Patricks will go from strength to strength with a Head Teacher/Principal who will continue to grow with the community of St Patrick's and make this great school even better.
Thank you for your support I look forward to working with you and your children over this academic year.
