Retirement message

Letter from Sarah Turner, CEO

Dear Parents
As you may know I am retiring from my role as CEO at the end of this term and Androulla Nicou will be taking up her appointment as the new CEO in January.
It has been a real pleasure to set up and lead the ELT Partnership and we have so much to be proud of.

I have been privileged to lead a wonderful staff team who work tirelessly to ensure that our pupils have access to the very best education. Our staff support the well being of our pupils in so many ways and I never cease to be impressed at their commitment.
I have also been helped by a fantastic team of trustees and LEC Members who have been very supportive of the trust and the schools they serve.

This week I was fortunate enough to attend the 2021 National Schools Awards with Matt Miller and two of our trustees. The presentation ceremony was held at the House of Lords and we were one of three MATs nominated for ‘MAT of the Year’. While we were unsuccessful it was great to have our hard work recognised nationally in this way.

Finally I would like to thank you for entrusting your children into our care. We never forget that the children are at heart of everything we do and I’m very proud of all their achievements.

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and New Year.
Kind regards
Sarah Turner
