Mrs Burrell will be leaving Maldon Primary School at the end of the summer term. She has been appointed as head teacher at White Court Primary School in Great Notley.
Mrs Burrell has led significant progress at Maldon. She has overseen improvement in teaching and learning, which means that the children are achieving more. She has also made sure that the children go on lots of trips, that the children who need additional support get it; and her tireless work with local businesses and fundraising for Maldon Primary has enabled the children to enjoy opportunities that they wouldn't otherwise be able to. We will be very sorry to see her leave the school.
Finding a new head teacher for Maldon is now our key priority. TKAT, the acamedy trust that Maldon is part of, will be advertising the post at the start of next week. We want to assure you that we will make every effort to ensure that the right head teacher for Maldon is appointed. We will make sure to keep you informed as the recruitment process progresses.
Meanwhile we very much hope that the children enjoy the summer term, and carry on learning and making progress with their lessons. Your continued support for the school and for Mrs Burrell and her team is much appreciated.
