Dear Parents and Carers,

I am delighted to be able to write to you as the Acting Headteacher of Pool Hayes Primary School. All the staff and children have made me feel very welcome over the years and I feel privileged to be leading and supporting your school community. Being a father of a two year old and a newborn I am very much aware of the responsibility that my staff and I have in ensuring that the highest standard of teaching and learning is evident in all areas.
Since my appointment as Deputy Head, I have had the privilege to be a part of almost all aspects of school development and the incredible progress I feel we have made over the past four years. I would like to say thank you to Ms Bailey for her support in ensuring the transition to a new management team was as smooth as possible and all the efforts she has made to drive Pool Hayes Primary forward. As a staff we all wish her well in her new role as Executive Headteacher in Norfolk.

My priority as Acting Head Teacher is to ensure that Pool Hayes Primary continues to aim to become an outstanding school. Not only do I want to continue to drive the school forward in terms of staff and school community this term but also continue to build an excellent team to work alongside myself and the new Headteacher from January. This is to ensure we are able to meet the needs of all of our fantastic children to achieve their full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development. Our school mission and vision is embodied in all efforts we make at Pool Hayes Primary and is the central focus of all achievement throughout the curriculum and beyond:

Mission: staff and children going for gold!
Vision: staff, children and parents working together to inspire, challenge and learn.

I know how vital working in partnerships with parents really is, in order for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience. I strongly believe achievement and enjoyment go hand in hand to ensure each child makes excellent progress. I hope you will continue to support our high expectations in all areas, especially in behaviour and achievement. 

Thank you in advance for taking time out to give me your valuable feedback when you completed the parent questionnaire earlier this term. The results have now been published in the parent info section of this website, please click on the 'parent questionnaire' section to view the outcomes and what we are aiming to do with your suggestions this year. 

I would like to thank you personally for your continued commitment and support towards the staff and pupils of this school.

Mr Alan Carter
Acting Head Teacher
