The diversity of Headship

One of the things I love most about my job is the variety it brings on a daily and weekly basis.

This week I have had the pleasure of working with most of our wonderful children and count teaching a wet and hugely fun capacity lesson in Thistle class, working with children on using a new piece of software to create images and text with dexterity and skill and even enjoying a live radio broadcast among some of the many activities that I have been involved in this week.

One of the many joys of working in a small school is that you get to know the children and their families so very well and that opportunities for working in the classroom arise regularly. Take in an after school coding club, leading assemblies, touring the school during a busy and wonderfully enthusiastic maths day and writing both a newsletter and a piece for the Westwood Update, it all goes in to making a brilliantly diverse job that I am lucky enough to do.

Of course, I must include all of the amazing people that work at our school, as without the completely dedicated and talented team that we have making each day so much fun for the children. They constantly work hard to provide inspiring learning opportunities and bring so much fun and good humour to the building that it really is a special and unique place to be.

Here are a few photos from this week’s maths day to show you what I mean.

Please don’t forget next week’s Race for Life – it would be lovely to see you there. You can also donate to our school page for Cancer Research on
