New Principal

I am delighted to introduce myself to you as the new Principal of Bovingdon Academy. All the staff and children have made me feel very welcome, and I feel privileged to be joining your school community. Being a mother of four children, I am very aware of the responsibility that my staff and I have in ensuring the highest standard of education and pastoral guidance, and that this should remain evident in all areas of school life.

Firstly, let me begin by saying what a privilege it is to have been chosen to lead this school forwards in the next part of its journey. Children’s education – including their spiritual, moral and physical well- being - is at the heart of everything I do. I believe strongly that all children should enjoy learning, be actively engaged in their learning and know what it means to experience success. It is paramount that all children are motivated, make consistent progress and have high expectations of what they can achieve.

My priority as Principal is to ensure Bovingdon Academy continues to guarantee outstanding achievement for all its pupils. Not only do I want to get to know the pupils, staff and school community this term but also begin to build an excellent team to work alongside me. This is to ensure we are able to meet the needs of all our pupils to achieve their full potential in their academic, creative, personal, physical, moral and spiritual development.

I know how vital working in partnership with parents really is in order for children to find school a positive and rewarding experience. I strongly believe achievement and enjoyment go hand in hand to ensure each child’s excellent progress.

As part of the family of Aspire Academies Trust, our academy has developed a set of core values which will continue to underpin all the work we do. These values will have a huge impact as your child develops. They help to deepen your child’s positive values and in doing so, help them consider the implications of their choices in relation to themselves, the communities in which they live, and the wider world.

Supporting this is the provision of a rich, exciting learning experience for all children and this cannot be done in isolation, as the school should be at the heart of its community. Therefore, I will be seeking your views as I meet and get to know as many of you as I can over the next few weeks and months.  I will be around or in the playground as much as possible before school and at home time to meet you all.

I would like to thank you personally for your continued commitment and support towards the staff and pupils of this school.

Mrs S Breslin
