Dear Parents and Carers
I am writing to let you know that Mrs Swinson will be retiring at the end of the summer term.
Mrs Swinson has been our Headteacher for twelve years and in that time the school has gone from strength to strength, as the recent Ofsted report is testament to.
Her departure gives us a real challenge and over the next few weeks the Governing Body will be working with Herts For Learning to recruit a new Headteacher to continue Mrs Swinson’s work.
I will write to you again when there is more to report which should be by the end of April.
We will have the opportunity to properly say goodbye to Mrs Swinson in July, but for now, on behalf of the Governing Body, I would like to thank her for everything she has done for The Lea and wish her well in her retirement.
Chair of Governors
[Update 23/3/18 from Mrs Swinson: Following on from the letter sent out by our Governing Body last Friday regarding my retirement, I would like to say thank you to parents and carers for all the lovely comments I received. I was extremely touched by your kind words.]
