Dear Parents and Carers
As many of you will be aware, following my decision to retire this summer, the governors of Blacon High School have been seeking to appoint a new Headteacher for September 2018.
Interviews recently took place over three days. On Friday, 27th April selected candidates for the post spent a day in school undertaking a range of activities which included meeting representatives of the Student Council, parent governors and staff members. Further detailed interviews took place on Monday, 30th April and Tuesday 1st May.
At the end of this robust process and after careful consideration the governors have decided not to appoint any of the candidates interviewed at this time. The governing body and I want to reassure you that the school has plans in place to ensure the continued orderly and successful running of the school from September. I shall continue in the role of headteacher until a successful appointment of a new headteacher has been made.
You will receive further information as we finalise this plan in more detail.
Mrs Sue Yates
