Welcome to Sherwell Valley Primary School...

To all Parents and Carers,

Thank you very much for the warm and friendly welcome that you have given me as I start as Headteacher at Sherwell Valley Primary School. I am tremendously excited to be taking on this role and am really looking forward to working with you. I am coming to Sherwell Valley having been Headteacher at Sandford School. Before that, I was a Deputy Headteacher in two other schools. I'm sure that this experience will be useful to me, but I want too, in these first few weeks, to find out about Sherwell Valley and what makes it such a special place for children to come and learn. Last term I was able to have the opportunity to ask that question of a number of Sherwell Valley pupils. They told me about the caring staff, the exciting lessons, the sport, the residentials and the kindness. Those sound like great things and I shall be working hard with the team here to keep those strengths going. I'm very keen as well to hear your ideas about our school. Do come and talk to me when you see me on the playground. We want to make this the best possible place for children to learn and grow.

Many thanks, Jonathan Gower
