William Patten Primary School


Dear Parents and Carers,

As you are all aware, Kathryn is retiring at the end of this school year.

We are delighted to announce that Karen, our long-standing deputy headteacher, has agreed to become acting headteacher for a year to provide us with the expertise, experience and stability that the school needs at a time when many primary schools are finding headteacher recruitment a challenge. Emma has also agreed to be the acting deputy headteacher for the same period of time.

We feel fortunate to have such dedicated and highly-regarded senior leaders on the staff. We are confident that Karen is the best person to lead, manage the transition and secure the long-term future of our happy and successful school.


Julian Winship

Chair of Governors
