We are very excited to lead Dame Elizabeth Cadbury School at this stage of its development.
We want the best for every child, regardless of who they are. That is what drives us. Our golden rule is: if it would not be good enough for our own relatives, it is not good enough for Dame Elizabeth pupils.
We have gone back to basics with our approach to behaviour. We expect pupils to have manners and show respect to each other and their teachers. Anyone who does not show manners and respect is sanctioned and reflects on their behaviour so they make better choices in future. We know parents and carers chose Dame Elizabeth because they wanted a superb learning experience for their children. To that end, we will not allow anyone to steal the learning of others.
Both of us have extensive experience of improving schools in a range of different contexts and we are really enjoying making Dame Elizabeth even better.
We always welcome feedback and, if you want to get in touch or you have general queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. During the week, we will aim to get back to you within 24 hours.
We are also going to be more active on twitter, so please follow us at @FollowDECTC
Thank you for your continued support,
