Outgoing Colnbrook head thanked for “dedication, passion and hard work”
Outgoing Colnbrook Primary School head Jeremy Meek was thanked for his “dedication, passion and hard work” in the school’s final newsletter of 2014.
Colnbrook Primary’s headmaster, Jeremy Meek, said his goodbyes to parents and children before Christmas.
Assistant Headteacher Susan Marsh, who will take over as head from January 1, paid tribute to Mr Meek’s “enthusiasm and positive outlook” in the school’s newsletter, which had moved the school forward.
“All of us here at Colnbrook C. of E. Primary School would like to say a huge thank you to Mr Meek for all he has done for the school. His dedication, passion and hard work have been instrumental in moving the school forward. We will miss his enthusiasm and positive outlook”.
The final weeks of the Autumn term saw children from the school perform a Nativity and Christmas Cantata to parents and some visitors from the local community. A church service, visit from Santa (via the Hilton Poyle), Christmas Lunch served by the staff, and Christmas Discos brought the term to a close.
Earlier in December the school’s choir brought shoppers to halt singing Christmas Carols in the Queensmere Shopping Centre. Choir leader Kez Boutouil has posted on the Centre’s Facebook page about how proud she is of the choir.
Jeremy Meek now moves to Claycotts School in Britwell, where he assumes the role of headteacher. The school, classed by OFSTED as “Good” in 2009, is expecting its next inspection imminently.
Mr Meek thanked pupils, parents and staff for the “support and dedication that has been shown for the school” during his time first a senior leader and then as headteacher.
“I have very much enjoyed working with you all and I am looking forward to hearing about the future successes of the school”.
Next term the school will welcome three new members of staff: Mr Gallant who will be working with Mrs Marsh in Year 6; Mrs Nota who will be covering classes around school so that teachers receive their PPA (planning, preparation and assessment) time and Mrs Prestedge, who will be joining the school as a lunchtime controller.
The school reopens on January 6.
