Dear Parents

I hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the year ahead.

I must thank you for your patience.  I am sure when Mrs Noble announced she was going part-time you wondered how long she would job share with Mrs Dalman.  Mrs Noble has now decided to retire at the end of this academic year and we have started the process of recruiting a new head teacher.  Jane told the children in assembly today.  We will be advertising for a replacement head teacher in January with interviews at the end of April.

I am sure you will join the governors in thanking Jane for her dedication to Beaulieu School and for her success in ensuring the children are confident lifelong learners with a strong community spirit.  We could not have asked for a more hard working head teacher and we will all miss her greatly.  It has in fact been a Noble team effort from the wonderful Christmas party entertainment, to Tim’s popular assistance in the classroom and on the games fields, to her husband’s help with transport to events, to her own strong and inspirational leadership of an excellent team of teachers.

Jane has tirelessly overseen the expansion of the school’s facilities and constantly sought to improve the buildings in difficult financial times.  As a governing body, we will miss Jane’s experience, her ability to foresee the next educational issue before any government initiative, and her dedication to the children.

I am sure you will join me in wishing her the very happiest retirement and I encourage you to make the most of her final two terms at Beaulieu.

Yours faithfully

Lynne Truell

Chair of Governors
