Keeping you informed every step of the way

Hello and welcome to my first Principal’s Blog.

Keeping you all updated on the progress of the school is incredibly important to me and whilst I will continue my monthly parent forums, I have set up a blog on our school website to keep staff, students, parents and the wider community informed of any key updates and how the school is improving.

When I joined the school last term, I put a clear plan in place to improve outcomes for all students based on effective teaching and learning. I made clear my commitment to the whole school and local community, my ambitious plans to make The Whitehaven Academy a good school that we can all be proud of; that commitment is undiminished and I will continue to ensure you will all be part of a school which you can be proud to be a part of.

You will be aware that we had a meeting with the teaching unions on Friday and we will communicate the outcome of this meeting as soon as we are able. In the meantime, please remember that my door is always open if you have any concerns or questions, and I would like to remind you of my pledge that if you request a phonecall with me, I will call you back within 24 hours and if you request a meeting with me, I will meet with you within three days.

As a reminder, the next parent’s forum is being held this Thursday on 19th January.

I hope to see you there and I look forward to sharing more updates with you during the coming weeks.

Mr Warren Turner

Principal
