From the Head Teacher

Dear Parents and Carers,

Firstly, I would like to welcome you all back to school and to wish you a happy new year!

I am delighted to be writing to you as the new Headteacher of Bourn Primary Academy and I am very much looking forward to getting to know you and your children over the coming weeks.

I am committed to doing my absolute best to lead the school in order to build on its many strengths and to continue to make it an even better place for your children to learn.

My approach to education is underpinned by the belief that the children are at the heart of everything we do. This means we believe that any child can be taught anything, and we should do all we can to make sure that this is achieved by teaching the most interesting curriculum, using the best teaching techniques and providing the right support. We are all constantly learning and when we expect the best of each other, and support each other in doing so, there are no limits as to what we can achieve together.

I have been teaching for nearly 15 years and have taught all year groups from Foundation Stage to Year 6. During this time, I have held a range of roles including English and Maths subject leadership and Special Needs Coordinator. Prior to this, I worked in mental health services in London and I retain a keen interest in mental health, particularly relating to children and young people. It is vital that we provide support and care for our children to ensure that they can achieve their potential.

I am aware that a change of Headteacher is a time of transition and I would like to work with you to ensure that this is as smooth as it can be for everyone. I am very keen to develop a strong working partnership with you as parents in order that we continue to do the very best for the children. You will regularly see me on the school gate and, if you would like a longer chat or discussion about any aspect of the school or your children, please do come and see me.

Yours sincerely

Laura Latham

Head Teacher
