Head of School Statement – November 2019

Dear Parent(s) / Carer(s),

Mr Yates has made the decision to leave his role as Head of School as of 31st October 2019. I informed staff and students of his decision this morning.

Mr Yates asked that I express his thanks to all concerned, for the support he has received whilst at Nunthorpe. He also asked that I pass on his thanks and best wishes to Nunthorpe community and the Academy’s students as they continue on their educational journey.

I would like to put on record my thanks to Mr Yates for his commitment to Nunthorpe Academy since 1996, and in particular his work as Head of School over the last three and a half years.

I appreciate this is an uncertain time for parents/carers, students and staff; I am requesting your patience during this interim period. As of 1st November, I will assume some aspects of the role of Head of school at Nunthorpe Academy with the help of Mrs Kell who has agreed to step up to the role of Acting Head of School until the end of December, in the first instance, to carry out day to day aspects of the role.

Either myself of Mrs Kell will communicate with you again over the next few weeks.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Lee Brown
Executive Principal
