Message from the embattled head, David Thomas:
For the benefit of those not at yesterday’s Staff Forum, this email is to confirm that all staff have been awarded a 1.5% pay increase from January 2014.
Although the school’s finances remain very tight, with many demands on our resources, the Governor’s (sic) believe that it is important to recognise the contribution that staff have made and continue to make to the success of the school.
In making this award, the Governors would like to thank all staff for their efforts this term, and particularly for the way in which you have dealt with the many changes which have taken place since September.
If you are not able to be part of the various end of term events, I do wish you a happy and restful Christmas.
Hanging over this happy and restful Christmas is the dismissal of the Head of Music, Quentin Poole, supposedly because this music school could not afford a head of music.
