IEB News

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We hope you managed to all spend some time with your families and friends over the festive season and New Year.

Frays Academy Trust, the IEB and the Shadow Governing Body are currently recruiting a permanent Headteacher to lead the school from the start of the summer term. We hope to make an appointment on, or shortly after January 22, once candidates have completed the assessment days we are currently planning.
We would like to invite parents, guardians and carers to meet with Chris Cole, Chief Executive of Frays Academy Trust, at 6:30 pm on Monday 28 January. This will be an opportunity to talk with Chris, understand more about Frays, and how Beechwood will fit within the Trust.

Assuming the recruitment process is successful, we will also invite your new Headteacher, so that you can meet the appointed candidate.
Members of the IEB and Shadow Governing Body will also be available to answer any questions you may have. We are currently working through the logistics, but hope to be able to offer a creche at school so that parents and carers have every opportunity to attend. Details to be confirmed.

We welcome back Deputy Head Mrs Minter on a phased return and she is working along side Mrs Voisey for the foreseeable future. We are hoping that Miss Curtis will be returning as soon as possible this term. She is responding well to treatment and has been kept up to date with the progress the School and your children are making.

We have been given the details of some great training offered free to any parents, guardians or careers whose child may be affected by autistic spectrum disorder. Please see the attached link for details of when the work shops are in our area:

Kind regards
Beechwood IEB and Local Governing Body
