Dear Parents and carers

On behalf of the school community I would like to wish you Happy New Year – I hope it is a successful one for you and
your families, as we enter a new decade!

At the start of this term we welcome new staff – Mr Tom Jeffrey (Science), Mrs Beatriz Betancort (EAL), Mrs Claire Henwood (EAL), Mrs Jennifer Whale (Finance Office), Miss Anjuma Lasker (Sixth Form Progress Lead) and Miss Corinne Harris (KS3 Progress Lead). We wish our new colleagues success in their new roles.
As you know, we welcomed Lea Valley Academy into the Trust in October 2019 and in December, we made a full
planning application to the London Borough of Enfield Council, to build Salmon’s Brook Free School. This new school is scheduled to open in 2021.

In order to support the growth of the Trust, we have appointed Mr Paul Miller to be Head of School. Mr Miller is well known to the school community as Deputy Head and also as Acting Head of Primary when Mrs Franciosa was on maternity leave. He is therefore well placed to manage the school when I am engaged in work with both Lea Valley and Salmon’s Brook. We are actively recruiting for a Deputy Headteacher and we will inform you of that appointment in due course.

Wishing you well for the term.
Yours sincerely

Dr S M Tranter
Executive Headteacher
