Parents of pupils at Sudell Primary School have been written to today by Principal Kathryn Coiffait to explain that she will be leaving the school this month.
The letter explains: “I am writing to inform you that I will be leaving Sudell at the end of this term due to a change in my personal circumstances. I am very grateful for the understanding and support I have received from Aldridge Education, who have allowed me to end my post earlier than the usual notice period.”
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Sudell and take away warm memories which I will always cherish. I am very appreciative of the fantastic support the school receives from families and the superb staff team, who have become my second family. Most of all, I want to say thank you to the children at Sudell who have made me very proud and ensured that every day was full of fun.”
“In order to ensure continued strong leadership Mrs Helena Lewis, a successful and experienced Headteacher, is joining the school as Interim Principal and will be working with the school on a number of days this term to ensure a smooth transition, before taking up the role from the start of next term.”
Helena Lewis, who is currently Head of Primary at Abraham Moss Community School in Manchester, said: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to lead Sudell Primary School as part of Aldridge Education and look forward to working with the whole of the Sudell family; children, families and staff in achieving success.”
