I hope you have enjoyed the summer and your children are ready to start back at school.
Over the summer, Mr. Kennedy, the headteacher at St. Cuthbert’s Catholic Academy for the past twelve years, decided it was time for him to move on. I know he enjoyed leading the school and leaves with many happy memories of the children, families, staff and governors he worked with over these years.
In allowing him to leave at relatively short notice, the directors will want to consider the best way forward for St. Cuthbert’s. We will do this at our meeting in October after a period of thought and deliberation. Of the greatest importance to us will be ensuring your children have the highest possible standard of education and supporting the staff who we rely on to deliver it.
For this half term, I have asked Mr Stephen Tierney, the Trust’s CEO, to assume the overall responsibility of St. Cuthbert’s. Many of you may know him as he was previously the headteacher of St. Mary’s Catholic Academy. Mrs Loy, St. Cuthbert’s Deputy Headteacher, will take responsibility for the day to day management of St. Cuthbert’s. We are also fortunate, as a Trust, to be able to ask Mrs Smith, Headteacher at Christ the King Catholic Academy, to provide support with her knowledge, experience and expertise of successfully leading a Catholic primary school in Blackpool.
