Following the announcement in January of her appointment, Jane Fletcher will be joining us on May 1st. Ahead of then Jane wanted to pass this message of introduction on to everyone in our schools, our governors and our central team.
“I am very excited to be joining the Trust next month and visiting all of our schools as soon as possible. I am really looking forward to meeting our staff and students to hear about the progress we are making and the challenges we face.
Prior to starting I have had the opportunity to talk to our Trustees, Principals and members of the central team to start to gain a picture of how we can further support each of our schools in improving outcomes for all of our students.
The cluster leads in English, maths and science that we have just announced will be an important part of that, forming the core of our Trust educational team and focusing on supporting school improvement. Growing a team formed of school leaders and Trust education leaders all focused on school improvement will be key as I arrive at Aldridge.
Also important will be our strong working partnerships with the Aldridge Foundation and the Aldridge Institute for Enterprise and Entrepreneurship. Our combined work makes us stronger together and enables our students to know rapidly increasing success in their school years and beyond.
I very much look forward to working with you.”
