The Leadership Team are:
Head:
Mr N Blackburn
Deputy: Mrs C Pugh
Key Stage 2 Leader: Miss Wheater
Foundation Phase Leader: Mrs P Linton
Leader for Inclusion: Mrs S Hawksworth
If you have a general concern/question always make the teacher your first port of call.  If you want further clarity, talk to Miss Wheater, Mrs Linton or Mrs Hawksworth... and finally look to Mrs Pugh and then Mr Blackburn.

Mission Statement:
'Inspire, Challenge, Achieve'
'Ysbrydoli, Herio, Cyflawni'

Point of Interest...
The parents at the coffee afternoon asked what the 'Leader for Inclusion' did.
Answer: the post holder Mrs Hawksworth is monitoring the strategies which are provided to all learners who need additional support... it has little, if anything to do with 'exclusion'.
