Dear Parents and Guardians,
I am proud to be writing to you as Headteacher of St Brides Major CW Primary School. I am absolutely delighted to have started in post and consider it a privilege to have been appointed.
I have had many years experience in education as a teacher and as a Deputy Headteacher. I have taught in Pendoylan CW Primary School, and have been Deputy Headteacher in Wick & Marcross and St Andrews Major CW Primary Schools. I have been fortunate enough to have worked in schools that believe that education is about developing the whole person: socially, emotionally, spiritually as well as academically. These are the beliefs that I bring to St Brides.
My number one priority is to ensure that St Brides consistently promotes the very highest academic standards set in a happy caring Christian environment. Children only get one education and I am determined to ensure that students who attend St Brides enjoy their time here, make excellent progress and leave school equipped with the skills and appetite for lifelong learning. I will strive to work with you all to build upon the unique strengths at St Brides, and the excellent practices that already exist to move the school forward.
My expectations of the pupils, in terms of their achievement and behaviour, are very high. I expect all members of the school community to uphold the values of respect, tolerance, courtesy and cooperation. Your support in reinforcing high expectations is very much valued. As you’re the most precious person in your child’s life, it’s really important that we work together to support each other in making sure your child gets the best education possible.
I look forward to meeting you at forthcoming events and working with you and your children in the years ahead.
Mr D Mottram
