Dear Parents and Carers
I am writing to inform you that I have taken the incredibly difficult decision to resign from my position as headteacher of Radcliffe Hall Primary School.
I can assure you that this is not a decision that I have taken lightly but since the pandemic I need to balance my family and work commitments in a different way. I will be taking up a position in a new school from January 2022 which is closer to my home and daughters.
During my time at Radcliffe Hall we have been on an incredible journey and I am so very proud of all the staff and children and the way in which they have embraced so much change to transform the culture of our school which has impacted on teaching, learning and behaviour.
The Trust and Local Academy Partners have commenced the recruitment process to secure a new headteacher for January 2022 who will continue the work we have started. I will continue my work throughout the autumn term and work alongside staff and the Trust to prepare for the changes until I finish in December.
Can I thank each and every one of you for your support in what has been an unprecedented time.
Mrs Emma Ford
