Appointment of New Headteacher

We are delighted tolet you know that, after a rigorous interview process, Governors have appointed Peter Hallsworth as the next Headteacher of South Normanton Nursery School.


Peter is coming to us with a wealth of leadership and headship experience and is very much looking forward to working at our outstanding nursery school.


Although Peter will not be able to join us until the summer term, he has already met with Stephanie and will be a frequent visitor to Nursery during the spring terms. In order to ensure continuity for the children first and foremost but also for the whole school community, we are very pleased that Ruth will be stepping up to acting Head Teacher for the Spring terms and we are sure you will support her as you have supported Stephanie over the last few years.


If you have any queries about the changes at Nursery, please do not hesitate to speak to Stephanie before she leaves at Christmas or to Ruth. If you have any concerns about your child, their key worker or Ruth will always make time to speak to you.


Once again, may we thank Stephanie for the wonderful work she has done at South Normanton Nursery School and wish her well for the future. We know that South Normanton Nursery School will be in safe hands with Ruth, Peter and all of the other staff and will continue to be an amazing place for your children to grow and learn.


Yours sincerely


Isobel Martin         Emma Chamberlain
