Interim Headteacher Letter

Clevelands Preparatory School - Headteacher Update

8th February 2022

Dear Parents and Carers,

This is just a short note to introduce myself. My name is Phil Crossley and I will be acting as Interim Headteacher in the short term while Mrs Hughes is away.

Firstly, can I thank you and your children for the warm welcome I have received. It has been lovely to meet so many parents on the playground, if I haven’t introduced myself yet please do say hello!

Can I emphasise that if you feel you need an extended opportunity to meet with me, or another member of staff, appointments should be made by contacting the school office.

Also, can I please stress my expectation that this should be done in a calm and polite manner. Unfortunately, it is often the case that staff are not always immediately available. Similarly, I would ask that all interactions between parents, on or around school grounds, are courteous as we should remember that we are always on show to the children.

From what I have seen through my classroom visits this past week, you have a wonderful school with children who love learning and are full of smiles.

I look forward to meeting you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Mr P Crossley

Interim Headteacher
