Head's Welcome

Dear parents/carers,

I am delighted to be writing to you as the newly appointed Headteacher of Wycliffe CE Primary School. I feel extremely honoured and privileged to have been chosen to continue and build upon the successes that the school has seen most recently.

My vision for the school is to ensure that the needs of all our children are met in all areas of school life and that each child is given a wealth of experience and opportunities. This in turn, will guarantee they leave Wycliffe at the end of Year 6, feeling extremely confident, responsible and competent members of society, ready for their Secondary School journey.

I believe that school should be a happy, caring, spiritual, respectful and hardworking environment, in which all staff should utilise their skills to enable the children in their care to recognise their true potential and talents. As a community, we should endeavour to celebrate the successes of our children in all areas of school life. We can do this by showing them that we believe in them, respect them and are proud of them.

As key educators in your children’s lives, I feel that it is important that you feel you have a voice and that, as a school, we are approachable and allocate time to listen to your concerns, worries or thoughts about the school. I will be attending most coffee mornings run by our Parent Involvement Worker each Tuesday morning at 9am, during which parents/guardians can chat to both myself and others to express opinions on what the school is doing well and/or any areas that may need addressing.

You can be assured that as Headteacher, I will strive to create the best education for your child/children whilst they are members of our school family.

I look forward to watching your children grow in confidence, knowledge and spirituality during their time at Wycliffe and will thank you in advance for the support I know you will give all members of our school community in the years to come.

Yours sincerely

Mrs Denise Baxter
