Interim Headteacher's Welcome
I have joined Failsworth School to provide leadership continuity during a short period of change whilst a new
permanent Headteacher is appointed. I am an experienced Interim Headteacher with a strong background in the rapid
improvement of schools, and also in community building and development.
I can assure you that a seamless transition will ensure your child continues to receive the highest quality of
education available, and that the school will improve consistently under my direction. We will achieve this by
setting challenging targets based on the highest expectations and working collaboratively to achieve our goals.
I will also be working closely with the IEB to ensure that Failsworth School progresses towards a successful
outcome at its next inspection.
I will be attending parents’ evenings and other school events including the Parent Voice meeting during the next
few months and hope to meet many of you on these occasions.
I have inherited a very strong team which is here to support you and your child during their time at the school.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the school in the normal way and you will be directed to the
correct area of the team who will deal with your enquiry. If you wish to contact me directly my email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org. I will make every effort
to answer personally or redirect your enquiry to the most appropriate member of my team.
I look forward to working with you during the coming months.
