Dear Parents & Carers,
I am delighted to tell you that after a recruitment process with a panel including the Chair of Hatchlands Local Committee, education experts and a Trustee, we have appointed Ms Moira Anderson as the permanent Headteacher of Hatchlands Primary School with immediate effect.
I know that you will all join me in wishing Ms Anderson every success in her continued journey leading the team at Hatchlands. We are very lucky to have appointed such a dedicated, experienced and knowledgeable leader who shares the passion, vision and values of everyone within our Trust. Over the years, Ms Anderson has gained a wide range of leadership experience in addition to being the Acting Headteacher at Hatchlands since 1st September 2020. I know that you will recognise that she has been working tirelessly to tackle the challenges, similar to those faced by many Headteachers, and those unique to a new free school, and has already built strong relationships with the staff, parents and children within our community to address these.
On confirmation of her new role Ms Anderson said, “I am delighted to be appointed the permanent Headteacher at Hatchlands at such an exciting point in the school’s development. With the first Key Stage 2 class due to start in September, it is a wonderful opportunity to help shape a successful future for the school and build on the good work that has taken place so far”.
We were all impressed with Moira's passion and dedication to the children and wider community at Hatchlands and wish her every success in her new role!
Finally, I want to reiterate my huge congratulations to Ms Anderson!
With Best Wishes,
