Statement from Shirley Mills, Chair of Governors

The Governors are very pleased to announce that, working closely with the Local Authority, and following the retirement of Lynne Ackland, we have secured leadership support, with immediate effect and initially until the end of this academic year, from St Mary's Catholic School, a National Support School since 2011 and an Outstanding school since 2009.

This will equate to the equivalent of 5 days per week of senior leadership support. John Foster, current Headteacher of St Mary's and a National Leader of Education, will take on the role of Executive Head of Heaton Manor and Emma Patterson, current Deputy Head of St Mary's, will take on the role of Head of School at Heaton Manor.

Arrangements will be made as soon as practicably possible for parents to meet John and Emma.
