Headteacher appointment

Dear Parents and Carers We are really pleased to be able to announce the appointment of our new Headteacher, Sally Robins, who will join us full time after February Half term. We will both remain at Longcot and Fernham until Mrs Robins starts, ensuring a smooth transition and handover period. Mrs Robins is a highly skilled and experienced Headteacher. She was the Headteacher of Faringdon Infant school for five years, and is currently the Headteacher of Lawn Primary and Nursery School in Swindon. There will be an opportunity to meet Mrs Robins before she starts with us, early in the new year. Mrs Robins has shared the following message. I am absolutely delighted to be joining Longcot and Fernham C of E Primary School as Headteacher. I was lucky enough to visit and know the school a little during my previous period of working for Faringdon Learning Trust, and I am so looking forward to working with this wonderful community to ensure the children continue to have the best possible educational experience. Thank you to Mrs Silvester and Mr Browne for the warm welcome. I will be working with them both in the coming months to ensure a smooth leadership transition. I look forward to meeting you all soon. We are all thrilled with such a positive appointment, and look forward to working with Mrs Robins as Longcot and Fernham primary school moves forwards into the next chapter.

Best regards,

Clare Silvester and Andy Browne Interim Co-Headteachers
