A panel of members from Tregolls Governing Body interviewed four shortlisted candidates earlier this week. After a series of tasks involving stakeholders, an external primary adviser and interviews over a one and a half day period, the panel recommended the appointment of Mrs Lara Jeffries currently a headteacher at a primary school in Warwickshire. The recommendation was confirmed by the Governing Body yesterday.

The Governing Body also wishes to add its most sincere thanks to Mr Andy Watkins for everything that he has done for the school during his time as Acting Headteacher since last September. Mr Watkins will continue in post for this half term.
It is a privilege and honour to be in the position of Acting Headteacher at Tregolls School – An Academy. I have been Deputy Headteacher at the school for six years and have been part of an amazing team that has transformed the school and the lives of so many children. We are a caring, passionate community of learners who value every child.

My aim during the 2018/19 academic year is to continue to support our talented teachers to enable them and their children to thrive. We have achieved great success and gained national recognition in recent years and I want to build on and cement those solid foundations.

Teaching and learning are my passion and are at the heart of everything we do at the school. All children need to experience fun, exciting lessons that will hook them onto learning for life. We ensure quality first teaching in the classroom and support this with an innovative extra-curricular programme.

We have high expectations for all our pupils and pride ourselves on the respectful relationships we nurture between staff, children, parents, carers and governors. We are often complemented on the warm and friendly atmosphere in and around the school.

I am happy to meet current and prospective parents so please contact the office to make an appointment and join one of our tours around the school.

Safeguarding Statement

Our school is committed to keeping children safe and promoting the welfare of children and indeed, the welfare and safety of families whose children attend our school. We are part of Operation Encompass, a national police and education early intervention partnership that supports children exposed to domestic abuse. Staff have extensive and regular training to ensure that all children, regardless of gender, age disability, race, religion, sexual identity or social status are protected from abuse.
