Dear Parents, Carers and Pupils
I am writing to inform you that after a number of successful and enjoyable years at Laira Green Primary, I have made the very difficult decision to resign from my position as Headteacher.
It has been a difficult decision to make, having always put Laira Green Primary and the pupils first and at the heart of every decision I have made. As I look back, I am delighted with the journey we have all been on- the hard work, the shared successes and of course the laughter!
I will be leaving at Christmas to begin a new position as Headteacher in West Sussex. Many of you will know that I have family in Brighton and to be near them is my only reason for leaving Laira Green. Please be reassured, I took my time to find a school which has similar values and aims as Laira Green – there’s not many around as special as LG!! If I could take you all with me I would!!
I would like to thank all the stakeholders – governors, teachers, parents, pupils – for supporting me in my role as Headteacher over the last seven years. The school will be left in very safe hands: we are fortunate in having a strong governing body, excellent senior leadership team, forward thinking middle managers and very many brilliant and committed staff.
During my time at the school, the Governors have worked tirelessly to ensure the very best outcomes for all the pupils – their strategic work will continue and they will keep you informed of future recruitment decisions. The many successes achieved together will be continued to be built upon at Laira Green.
I will, when the time comes to leave, miss the pupils greatly and all my colleagues very much and want to say a huge thank you to them and to you, for all your support over the years – it has meant so much to me!
It will, of course, be business as usual until Christmas, as I continue to focus on your child’s progress, both socially and academically!
Please feel free to discuss this matter with me – I shall be available during the school day and during parents evenings this week.
Best wishes for the future.
Miss D Bailey
