Learning Federation Leadership Team

We are delighted to inform you that we have now confirmed the Leadership Team for the Learning Federation. Last Friday the Governing Board interviewed Mr Drakes, Mrs Nicholls and Mrs Smith. Following their presentations and discussions about the future for our two schools and Federation the Governors unanimously appointed all three to their posts on a permanent basis. Mr Drakes will take overall strategic responsibility for the Learning Federation as Executive Headteacher. Mrs Nicholls is now the permanent Headteacher for Broadford and is responsible for all aspects of day to day leadership: staffing, pupils, behaviour and communication with parents and members of the local community. Likewise Mrs Smith is now confirmed as the permanent Headteacher at Mead. At both schools we also have Assistant Headteachers with specific areas of responsibility both at their ‘home’ school and across the Federation:
Mrs Joanne Stanley (Broadford) - AHT Professional Development & Director of the Teaching School
Mrs Jane Wallis (Broadford) - AHT Curriculum Development
Miss Anna Calitz (Mead) - AHT Inclusion SEN/More Able
Mrs Alison Pidgeon (Mead) - AHT Outdoor Learning & Read Write Inc

I would like to thank you for all the patience and understanding that you have shown during a time of considerable change. We have had a very positive start to our life as a Federation. This Summer we saw outstanding results at KS2 for all of our pupils across both schools. In October Mead restored its Ofsted grading to Good - in fact the report was so positive that much of it read as if it were well on the way to Outstanding. Our pupils have seen the Federation community grow much closer through shared teaching, joint trips, Federation sports teams - allowing us to finish 3rd in the recent indoor athletics tournament - and joint enrichment activities: London Symphony Orchestra, Primary Proms & cycling.  It has been fantastic to see so you coming to support your children at the recent events and celebrate their achievements through the social media footage and posts. You have significantly contributed towards strengthening what is a very positive, child led ethos. Thank you.

As we close out the year we can be certain that 2017 will continue to see our new Federation go from strength to strength for the benefit of all our pupils - your children.
