It is with a heavy heart that I write to inform you that I will be retiring at the end of this summer term. Since my appointment as headteacher in September 2008 it has been a pleasure and an honour to work with all the children here at Croesty Primary School. This summer will bring an end to a thirty-five-year career in education and twenty-five years as a headteacher.
Whilst at Croesty I have been very fortunate to lead a dedicated staff team all of whom will go that extra mile for our learners. I would also like to express my immense gratitude to those who have served as volunteer governors and who have been a real force for good these last fourteen years. That gratitude also extends to our loyal hard-working army of PTA parents and helpers. It has not always been easy, and we have faced many challenges together, but that sense of community, determination and hard work have always prevailed to ensure success. Thank you all.
This has not been an easy decision for me to make and I will certainly miss the children and all the busyness that is primary education today. Steps will now be taken to appoint my successor, but I finish in the sure knowledge that our school will be left in safe hands. My very best wishes to Croesty for the future.
