In her role, Mrs Law says she will ‘ensure the wellbeing of all pupils’ and the ‘highest standards of education’ in line with the school’s values and ethos.
She said: “I am delighted to take up the role as headteacher. I am very proud of The Colleton and its unique ethos and am very much looking forward to working with our staff and families.
“I took up the post to lead a school that I love and to influence and make a difference to ensure all children develop a lifelong love of learning and are well equipped to cope with challenges they face in life both academically and socially.”
She added: “My vision as the new headteacher is to ensure that our school is a happy place where everybody thrives and achieves the very best they can both socially and academically.
“Since all the children returned to school in September, there has been a high focus has been on ensuring wellbeing of all to build and develop learning behaviours and for us to regroup as a community.”
