Dear Parent / Carer
Investing in and supporting staff development remains an on-going priority at Headlands School. Indeed our current Middle and Senior Leadership Teams are largely staff who started at Headlands School as Teachers and through personalised professional development opportunities they have secured, and continue to be successful in, key Leadership roles.
During September and October all staff undertake an annual review of their Appraisal Objectives. As part of these discussions we reflect on the impact of their professional development in their area of responsibility, their professional priorities and the schools improvement plans. Staff are then requested to update their Appraisal Objectives and apply for future professional development opportunities.
As such from Monday 13 November two key post holders in our Senior Leadership Team have requested the opportunity to change their posts, and in turn their roles and responsibilities, as part of their on-going professional development and to meet the future needs of the school.
The roles and responsibilities of each post are briefly outlined here:
Assistant Head – Personal Development, Behaviour & Welfare
Assistant Head – Curriculum & Timetable
In terms of student development I would also like to take this opportunity to remind parents /
carers of key events coming up this half-term including:
Monday 13 November – Year 7 Myriad ‘My resilience in adolescence’
Tuesday 14 November – Year 8 Myriad ‘My resilience in adolescence’
Friday 17 November – Children in Need Non Uniform Day
Monday 4 December – Year 11 Mock Interview Day
Friday 15 December – Save the Children ‘Christmas Jumper Day’
Monday 18 December – Year 7 & 8 Priory Church Service
Finally thank you, as always, for your on-going support.
Mrs S Bone
