Good afternoon, families.

Please see below a letter attached which formally informs you that after six amazing years, I will be leaving Travis St Lawrence at the end of this school year to take up a promotion as Executive Head Teacher at a local trust.

It has been an absolute honour and privilege to serve as Head Teacher here at Travis and I will miss working with such a fantastic group of staff, children and families.

We've got a busy term ahead of us and our focus in school is, always, on our children and securing their best possible outcomes. Whilst a change of Head Teacher can be unsettling, school leaders, governors and our academy trust are fully committed to ensuring a smooth transition.

As such, I am delighted to inform you that Mrs Philippa Cousins, a current serving Head Teacher in a local school and previous Deputy Head here at Travis, will be Head Teacher at Travis from September 2023. She has extensive experience of Headship and knows our community well. Some of you with older children will remember her from lower school. She will be ably supported by our existing leadership team and super staff.

I will be speaking to all the children next week and I look forward to seeing you before the end of the year at the various events we have planned.

As always, thank you so much for your continued support,

Mrs B x

Good afternoon, families.

Dear families,

It gives me great delight to finally share with you our recently published Ofsted report, where Travis St Lawrence has been judged ‘Good’ in all areas.
The report contains some fantastic comments and the inspection team were particularly impressed with how well our children articulated their learning and how they ‘lived’ their fantastic behaviour and attitudes in and around school.

The areas for development (continued curriculum design and assessment) are ones we have already identified here in school and are already working towards achieving these.

Some highlights from the report:

“Pupils enjoy being part of ‘Team Travis’ and talk enthusiastically about this welcoming school.”

• “Parents and carers are positive about the work of the school. They appreciate the kind and caring ethos in which their children learn. Leaders have fostered a strong sense of community, where stakeholders feel part of a school family.”

• “Leaders and staff know their pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) and their individual targets well”

• “There is a strong culture of safeguarding. Staff are well trained. They are alert to the potential signs that a pupil may be at risk.”

I am immensely proud, today and everyday, to be Head Teacher at Travis St Lawrence and am genuinely grateful to have the support of everyone who continues to support ‘Team Travis’.

Thank you.

Mrs B x
