Interim Principal Arrangements

Dear Parents and Carers,

As you know, Gavin Hosford will be leaving Green Meadows at the end of this term and so I thought I would write to you with clarification of the arrangements for leadership in the Academy after that point.  Firstly though, I would like to express my gratitude to Gavin for the work he has done over the last seven years or so on behalf of your children. Gavin cares deeply about everyone at Green Meadows, pupils and staff, and I have enjoyed working with him over the last couple of years. I am sure you will join me in wishing him well for the future.

From September, Steve Tighe will become the acting Principal at Green Meadows to oversee the period before the appointment of a new Principal. You may remember that Steve spent a period of time working with Green Meadows earlier in this school year and so is a familiar face to pupils and staff alike. Steve is a very experienced school leader and has acted in interim roles such as this in the Wellspring Trust in the past. Steve will be visiting the school over the next few days and weeks to begin the handover process for this transitional period.

The post of Principal has been advertised and it is our intention to recruit a suitable permanent replacement for Gavin as soon as possible. I will keep you informed of developments in that process as I have them.

Kind regards, Scott

Scott Jacques, Executive Principal
