My first week at Tunstall has been very exciting. I have been made to feel welcome and appreciate the time both children, parents, governors and staff have taken to make me familiar with the Tunstall way of doing things.
When I was asked to come and look after Tunstall for one term, little did I know that it would be 17 years later that I would be saying goodbye!
Another busy week culminating in 2 hugely successful performances of Matilda on Thursday and Friday evenings. The show is truly amazing, with brilliant performances by all cast members and superb support from the crew. Tickets are still available for the 2 shows on Monday (9.30am and 2pm) if you don't want to miss out. A huge well done to all involved but particularly Mrs Julier for her commitment to the performances.
The end of last term culminated in a fantastic May Day celebration - the rain held off and everyone had a lovely afternoon. The school field looked lovely, decorated with colourful flowers made by the children and our Mystic Rose procession and all of the dancing went very well indeed. WELL DONE TO EVERYONE - YOU ALL DID BRILLIANTLY!
The weather has finally changed for the better and preparations for the annual Tunstall May Day celebrations are well under way.
After a fairly lengthy recruitment process, the interview panel have chosen Mrs Beckie Andrews as the new Headteacher for the school. She is currently the deputy headteacher at West Kingsdown Primary School.
Time has flown by, Term 4 is nearly complete and Easter is almost here! We’re hoping that the weather will show great improvement too, as we begin our last week before the Easter Holidays.
We are pleased to formally launch the search for a new Headteacher by advertising the position on the Kent-Teach microsite and the Guardian online.
