Executive Heads Welcome
Mrs D Collins
Dear Parents and Carers,
It is with great excitement and a sense of pride that I write my first letter as Executive Head of St Joseph and St Teresa’s and Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Bentley. I have been a senior leader in Our Lady’s since September 2007 and head teacher since April 2013. I am a Local Leader of Education working with other schools within the Local Authority and I am a Section 48 RE Associate Inspector. I hope to be able to make good use of these skills in our school.
Many years ago, I had the privilege of being a senior leader at St Joseph and St Teresa’s and I am delighted to return as Executive Head. I am thrilled to have the opportunity of leading this wonderful school with Mrs Murphy, Head of School, and building on its success. Mrs Murphy will have responsibility for the day to day running of our school.
I am passionate about teaching and learning and have extremely high expectations. I strongly believe every child should feel safe, valued and loved. They should experience success on a daily basis and gain the necessary skills for future life.
I will be sharing my time between the two schools and I will be visible on the playground at the start of the day when I am at St Joseph and St Teresa’s. Please come and say hello to me.
