Executive Headteacher Welcome

IMG_6396Message from the Executive Headteacher

Welcome to Heavers Farm Primary School, part of the Federation of Heavers Farm and Selsdon Primary Schools.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our school blog which we hope will give you an insight into our enthusiasm for learning, the open nature of our approach and our commitment to improving the life chances of each and every one of our pupils. We hope that you take advantage of our blogs to engage with us. We welcome your thoughts and feedback which is why we include the facility to leave comments on all of our blog posts.

I am privileged to lead the Federation alongside Jo Read, the Deputy Executive Headteacher. Heavers Farm is led by Dan McCormack, our Head of School, along with our talented leadership team. I have been the Headteacher at Heavers Farm since 2007; leading it from the point of closure, to the popular and successful school it is today.

In September 2013 I was asked to join Selsdon Primary School in South Croydon, as their Executive Headteacher. Following the successful collaboration between the two schools, and consultation with all of our stakeholders, we formally became  The Federation of Heavers Farm and Selsdon Primary Schools on the 1st September 2014

The success of our collaboration was validated, by the first ‘Good’ Ofsted inspection at Selsdon Primary in over 12 years.

Jo Read and I divide our time between the two schools,  to ensure that everyone is working together with the same aim; to develop a culture of excellence within a safe, inclusive school environment.
