Welcome to Nightingale Primary School
Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope that you and your family have had a relaxing Easter break and I would like to welcome all the children back for the summer term, which is always one of the most enjoyable. It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the Interim Head teacher at Nightingale for this term.
The primary purpose of our school is learning. I wish to see the highest levels of personal achievement and enjoyment for all of our children. I am sure you will support me in also expecting respect for staff, other adults and pupils, good manners, honesty and a strong work ethic and excellent attendance.
Our school is a caring and supportive environment where everyone is of equal value and is encouraged to achieve their best. I am a strong believer in working in partnership with parents and I am keen to get to know as many of you as possible. You will find me in the playground most mornings before school and after school.
Following the retirement of Mrs. Barrett, after 16 years loyal service, Nightingale is about to embark on a period of change and it is vital that we keep lines of communication open. I am already liaising with Ms Langbridge the substantive Head teacher who will take up her post in September 2014. It is my aim to provide as smooth a transition as possible.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. You are welcome to visit, but please call for an appointment first. I look forward to working with you.
Mrs. Elizabeth Bradshaw
Interim Head teacher
