I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Headteacher of Craigmount High School.
I am delighted to get started in the role following my appointment to the post in December and feel very privileged to be joining the Craigmount team. I would much rather be able to meet both pupils and parents face-to-face but I will look forward to the time when I am eventually able to do that.
This year, particularly since Christmas, has been challenging for everyone and one of my first tasks will be to find out about the experiences of online learning for our young people. I am keen to work with our staff to ensure that we can provide the appropriate support for each individual in order to maximise the opportunities available for them.
Getting parents involved in their child’s education is of paramount importance to me and I am looking forward, at an appropriate point, to hearing your views on the school – both the strengths and what you feel needs to be improved further.
In the meantime, my hope is for a positive term ahead and I look forward to having the opportunity to meet with you at some point in the near future.
