Governor News


Dear Parents 

I am sure that by now you will all be aware of the fantastic news that Mrs Tina Herbert has been officially appointed as the new Head Teacher of Moorfield.  The Governors were absolutely ‘blown away’ by her performance during the interview process and we are so pleased to appoint her now officially as Head Teacher.

There is a wonderful article in the Ilkley Gazette this week that I highly recommend you read, detailing Mrs Herbert’s thoughts and ambitions for the school.  There are certainly exciting times ahead!

It’s hard to believe that we are already on the countdown to Christmas and with that comes the usual array of lovely festive events that will be taking place at school.  Myself and the other Governors will look forward to catching up with you all at various events over the coming weeks.

Well done to everyone last Friday for the money raised for Children In Need – what a fabulous day was had by everyone.  It's the Winter Disco on Friday this week and we hope that it too is a success for all.

What a busy schedule the school has!  It is testament to the dedication of the Head, Staff and the PA for arranging these amazing events to keep the children happy and for giving them memories of Moorfield that will last a lifetime. 

Remember that the best advertising and marketing available simply cannot beat the recommendations that come from our existing parents … please do continue to spread the good word about Moorfield to your friends and colleagues.

I wish you all well and look forward to catching up again very soon.

With kind regards

Martin Alton
