Tysoe School Update

Hopefully  everyone is now aware of the Federation between Wellesbourne C of E School and Tysoe C of E school which took place in January. If you would like more detail on that please feel free to contact me . As a member of the new Governing body and Chairman of the Pupils, Parents and Community committee I have taken on responsibility for keeping the villages informed of developments at the school.

Since March last year, David Bell has been enticed out of retirement and has been acting Head and latterly Head of School, since the Federation . We thank him for the stability and renewed purpose he has brought to the school, and hope that his recent retirement (for the second time !) will bring him more time to relax.

I am pleased to announce that Jenny Coates will be the new Head of School from September. Jenny  has many years experience across the education sector, and her passion is to make learning a valuable and  exciting experience for all. I attach a letter sent out recently to parents which I hope you will find of interest.

From Jenny Coates

Dear Parents and Carers,

I am very pleased to introduce myself as the new Head of School at Tysoe CE School from September.

I have extensive experience as a senior leader in three schools, including currently working at Wellesbourne CE School and for six of those years, with Mrs Oscroft. During my career I have taught in a wide range of settings from preschool to sixth form, although mostly within the primary age range. I am passionate about making learning exciting for all children and am delighted that my role at Tysoe will include a 0.5 teaching commitment.

I am mindful that Tysoe School has its own identity and culture. I will work alongside the Governing Body and ensure that Christian values are an integral part of the life of the school, as well as ensuring good links continue within the village community.

I value the tremendous support Mr Bell has been to the school and to me personally, and wish to thank him for the helpful discussions we have had to ensure a smooth handover.  I wish him a long and happy second retirement.

My aim is to promote the best possible learning experiences for all children and I look forward to working in partnership with all families. I am pleased to have already met some of you and your children, and also spent time in school working with the staff. Please do introduce yourselves when you see me, either on the playground in September or at the Summer Fete.

Yours sincerely,

Jenny Coates
