News from Mercian Education Trust

Accompanying this week's newsletter, you will have received a letter from the Trust that runs Somers Park Primary School.  It’s not often you hear from them because they quietly sort out the business previously managed by the Local Authority, however they hold ultimate responsibility for the finances, premises, leadership and standards at Somers Park, Great Malvern Primary School and the soon to be, Malvern Vale Primary School.  I sit as an ex-officio Director and report directly to the Directors’ Board on matters regarding the school.

The decision made by the Directors to adjust the leadership structure is fully in line with what is becoming the norm within multi-academy trusts, as schools work in greater collaboration.

I want to reassure you that as Executive Headteacher, my role as you see it at Somers Park, will remain very similar to the one which I currently do. Those who have got to know me, will know how much I am enjoying what I am doing in our magnificent school and I am pleased that the developments we have introduced are having a positive impact. None of this will change next year, and I look forward to continuing to work with the whole staff to build upon the excellent education we provide at Somers Park.
