The new headteacher at Wells Hall Primary School has praised the support of staff, students and parents after she began her new role just before the current lockdown.

Ros Towns started at the Great Cornard school earlier this month after joining from Wickhambrook Primary Academy, near Haverhill.

Ms Towns’ first day at her new school ended with the country going back into lockdown, which she admitted brought some very early challenges.

“It has been all a bit of a whirlwind, but the staff have been so positive and supportive since I started,” she said. “While I would have liked to have met every parent and child properly, I have started making contact and the response has been really positive.

“We have also begun some ‘meet the headteacher’ Zoom calls, which will help.”

Ms Towns said she knew all about the school’s reputation after being a governor at Wells Hall, which currently has around 70 children learning in the classroom, while the vast majority are home schooling.

She added: “I have always had a great respect for the school and I knew there was a great team at Wells Hall. It has huge potential to be even better and my aim is to give every child the education they deserve.

“I want to provide them with every possible opportunity, both in their curriculum and extra-curricular activities, while fostering a really positive relationship with parents.”

More ‘meet the headteacher’ Zoom calls will take place this Thursday and next Monday. To learn more, call the school on 01787 373489.
