Message from Ian Craig, Chair of Governors

I am sorry to inform you that Miss Caroline Conroy has decided to resign as Headteacher of Shorne School with effect from 31st August 2017. As you know, for personal reasons, Caroline has not been at school since last January, and Tara Hewett has been undertaking day to day management of the school in her absence. Caroline has written the following message to staff, parents, Friends of Shorne School and children:

“It is with huge sadness that I inform you that I will not be returning to Shorne Church of England Primary School. My sincere and heartfelt thanks go to everyone who has supported me over the past eight years. I will cherish the lovely memories from my fifteen-year association with the school, firstly as a teacher and then later as the Headteacher.

I feel privileged to have worked with wonderful families, colleagues and members of the wider community.

With best wishes,
Caroline Conroy”

We all give Caroline our very best wishes for the future. In the short-term Tara Hewett will continue to manage the school as Acting Head Teacher on a day-to-day basis. The Governors will of course inform you when they have made decisions about a future permanent headship position.

Ian Craig, Chair of Governors
Shorne Church of England Primary School
