Dear Parents and Carers,
I am delighted to be starting the new academic year as the Headteacher of Wrotham Road Primary School and I look forward to working with staff, parents, and pupils over the coming months. I am grateful for the fantastic support which I have received from the staff and governors over the last few years and they have all facilitated a smooth transition into my new role of Headteacher.
My work in the first term will be focused on working in close partnership with parents, governors and staff to secure the best educational outcomes for our pupils and to foster the type of caring learning environment which allows all pupils to achieve the success that we are serious about. It is already clear to me that we have a talented and confident group of young people and, together with our excellent staff, we will work hard to maintain and build upon the success that this school is known for.
We will continue to place a high value on allowing pupils to develop skills and expertise in important areas outside of the main curriculum. We have a strong record of sporting success and already we have many planned activities to develop sporting opportunities. A newsletter will be on its way soon! Students enjoy being given the freedom to develop skills and expertise in areas which excite and inspire them, and we have staff with the skills and passion to promote this culture.
Other key areas of focus over the coming year will be for the pupils to have a high level of attendance and punctuality; to wear the correct uniform smartly and with pride, give their best effort in all lessons; behave with respect at all times and believe in their ability to be successful. I will also be writing the School Improvement Plan which will clearly set out the vision and focus for the school over the coming year. I will share this with you, once I have consulted with the staff and governors.
I am determined that every pupil at Wrotham Road will be able to reflect upon their time here as a happy and fulfilling period which provided the foundations needed for their long term future successes.

I look forward to working with you all.
Kindest regards,
Sarah Green

New Headteacher

 New Headteacher 
Dear Parents and Carers, 

The Governors are delighted to report that we have appointed Mrs Green as our new Headteacher following a thorough 2 day appointment process. 
Mrs Green has previously done an excellent job as Deputy Headteacher and last year as Head of School she was pivotal in ensuring that the school ran efficiently whilst Mr Hovey was supporting Rosherville School. 
We are really looking forward to working with Mrs Green as she develops her plans to move the school forwards in the next stage of its development. We know that she will continue to operate an open-door policy for parents and carers and will involve you all in the plans for the school. 
We are sure that with the excellent team of staff we have she will be able to make a real difference to the pupils on their learning journey whilst at Wrotham Road School.
